Budgeted Hourly Rates - The next level of understanding your costs
Presenter: Jacquelyn Bistodeau, CPA, Manager, LB Carlson

Description: When it comes to job costing, most have a pretty good idea on the direct costs to produce a job; what materials should be ordered and what outside purchases are needed. But knowing the total manufacturing cost to produce a job is where a budgeted hourly rate comes in. Full absorption accounting takes you to the next level of understanding your costs. Having an accurate Budgeted Hourly Rate (BHR) will help you forecast your true costs to help you confidently and strategically price jobs.

The basic premise – Establishing Budget Hourly Rates (BHRs) is an essential tool for being competitive and profitable. 

Join us in a discussion of benefits, traditional flaws, and how others have overcome those obstacles.
