Question;Assignment #4Question[26 marks]Horses ?R Us (HRUS) Co. is a horse grooming and training company. They also supply horsesto movie productions to star in various movies. They have experienced horse handlers, horsegroomers and provide horses and all other services needed to care for and transport thehorses.Over the weekend of January 6th and 7th, HRUS had 2 different jobs. The first job was toprovide their services to a horse SHOW in Coquitlam. The second job was to provide theirservices plus some of their very highly trained horses to a MOVIE company in Vancouver.Both the SHOW and the MOVIE were ?open? from 10 am to 6 pm.The following is a list of the total (incremental) costs incurred for the weekend:Handlers$9,600Groomers5,500Horse Food948Veterinarian2,800Transportation8,950Supervision1,960Total$29,758Additional information follows:The SHOW took place on January 7th (Sunday). The MOVIE took place on January 6th and 7th(Saturday and Sunday).HRUS provided the SHOW with handlers and groomers for 25 horses owned by the clients.The clients delivered their horses to HRUS? stables on the morning of January 7th. HRUSsupplied 8 horses to the MOVIE and serviced those horses. Every horse has a handler.Inexperienced handlers were used for the SHOW. Inexperienced handlers are paid $20/hour.Experienced handlers were sent to the MOVIE with the horses. They are paid $35/hour. Dueto the stunts the horses have to perform for the MOVIE, the handlers have to spend two extrahours calming the horses down at the end of the day.The SHOW is 25 miles away from HRUS? stables and offices. The MOVIE is 10 miles awayfrom HRUS? stables.HRUS? groomers were used for both events. They are paid $500 per day for groomingservices, and each groomer can care for 6 horses per day. However, the horses in the MOVIErequired more time to groom, so each groomer took twice as long on the MOVIE horses. (Allgroomers work the same hours per day. Different groomers are used at each event.)HRUS will supply ?horse treats? only, for the client?s horses used in the SHOW. Each horseusually eats one bag of treats a day. HRUS? horses used in the MOVIE are fed bales of hayand treats. Each horse gets 4 bales of hay (per day) and will eat 20% less treats (per day)than the horses at the SHOW. Each bag of treats that is opened during the day is thrown out ifit is not eaten (by any horse). Bales of hay cost $7.50 per bale. Treats are $12 per bag.When there is an event, government regulations require a separate veterinarian to be on callthroughout each event (from 10 am to 6 pm). The vets charge by the hour.1Transportation costs include the use of their vans to transport the horses, food, handlers andequipment to the events. In addition to carrying the food and equipment, the vans can carry amaximum of 6 handlers and 6 horses each. When the event goes on for more than a day, thehandlers need to use a cab to get home and return to the event the next day as the vans are leftat the event?s location overnight. The cabs hold a maximum of 5 riders. The cab ride from thestables to Vancouver is $30 per trip and the cab ride from the stables to Coquitlam is $15. Thecost of cabs is included in transportation costs. (The groomers do not use the cabs.)HRUS Co. employs supervisors who work on the weekends (Saturday and Sunday). Thesupervisors spent 2 hours at the MOVIE over the weekend and 3 times as long at the SHOW,the supervisors? remaining time on the weekend was spent at the stables. The supervisorsnormally work from 10 am to 6 pm (and each supervisor gets paid the same amount).Required:a) Assuming that handler hours are used to allocate ALL costs, how should the weekend?stotal costs ($29,758) be allocated between the two events?b) Provide two reasons why using handler hours to allocate all the costs is not the bestapproach.c) Using ?activity based costing? (?user fee approach?), calculate how much of the $29,758should be allocated to the SHOW and how much should be allocated to the MOVIE event?Where applicable, ?directly trace? specific costs to each event. Any ?facilitylevel/organization sustaining costs? should be allocated using handler hours.ONLY SUBMIT THE PAGES THAT START WITH ?NAME? (pages 3?6)2294 ?
