Study 12 Divisional performance measurement and transfer pricing flashcards from Daisie Lafford's class online, or in Brainscape's iPhone or Android app. full cost + % profit) and the buying division records another transfer price (e.g. Specifically, a project with a positive net present value (NPV) at the company's cost of capital may show poor ROI or RI results in early years, leading to its rejection by the divisional manager. Care must be taken to ensure the division's product is the same as that offered by the market (e.g. Thebalance of its square capacity (1,000kg) has no opportunity cost andshould still be offered at marginal cost. The balance ofits spare capacity (1,000kg) has no opportunity cost and should still beoffered at marginal cost. What decisions will be made bymanagement if they act in the best interests of their division (and inthe best interests of their bonus)? Evaluating performance on the basis of a few indicators may lead to manipulation of data. This is the correct decision for thecompany since RI increases by $3,000 as a result of the investment. In practice, an extremely important function of the transferpricing system is simply to assist in recording the movement of goodsand services. An alternative use for some of its spareproduction capacity exists. Different taxation rates in these countries allows themanipulation of profit through the use of transfer pricing. The higher the transfer price, the better Division A looks and the worse Division B looks (and vice versa). The convenience division manufactures low fat ready-made meals for the local council. It has a 10% market share and therefore it seems reasonable to categorise the Premier division as a star. (b) What would be the average annual RIwith and without the investment? At a transfer price of $5, Division X would be expected to sell asmany units of X8 to Division Y as Division Y would like to buy. Test your understanding 8 - Additional example. Alternatively, if a perfectly competitive market does not exist for the product, the transfer price can be set at. The selling division will receive the same amount for any internal or external sales. P5-Chapter-9- Divisional- Performance- Appraisal-AND- Transfer- Pricing. The company's cost of equity was 15% in 20X7 and 17% in 20X8. Other information Ã¢â¬â such as staff turnover, market share, new customers gained, innovative products or services developed. So long as the bought-in external price of Y to Baker isless than $45, Baker should buy from that external source. Cost overruns in A would be passed on to B. These include the cost of a new equipment item costing $3million that was acquired two weeks before the end of the year. EVA capital employed is based upon the bookeconomic value of capital at the beginning of the relevant period. Interest expense was $4 million in 20X7 and $6 million in 20X8. Explain the limitations of ROCE as a divisional performance indicator and suggest alternative measures that might be more effective. A star product has a relatively high market share in a growth market. Division A would prefer the transfer price to be set at full cost plus 10%. Scenario 2: the selling division has surplus capacity, Scenario 3: The selling division does not have any surplus capacity, 10.3 Practical methods of transfer pricing, Illustration 3 â€“ Practical methods of transfer pricing. A company operates two divisions, Able and Baker. If Alabama begins sales to Florida, it (1) will use the general transfer-pricing rule and (2) will be able to reduce variable cost on internal transfers by $4. Rosca Coffee is a multionational company. However, this results in dysfunctional behaviour since thecompany's target is only 12%. This assumes that, if the selling division decided against makingany transfers at all, it would save all costs, both marginal and fixedcosts, by shutting down. Therefore, Jon will reject the investment. Opportunity costs from switching products. notes for performance. The transfer price should be setbetween $35 and $38. In fact, the only niche it found was as achildren's toy and it achieved only a low market share with littlegrowth potential as such. Able has spare capacity, therefore the marginalcosts to the group of Able making a unit is $35. making payments to the parent company in the form of: charging the subsidiary company additional head office overheads. Divisional performance measurement and transfer pricing for intangible assets Divisional performance measurement and transfer pricing for intangible assets Johnson, Nicole 2006-05-17 00:00:00 Rev Acc Stud (2006) 11:339–365 DOI 10.1007/s11142-006-9006-z Divisional performance measurement and transfer pricing for intangible assets Nicole Bastian Johnson Published online: 17 … ROI increases with the age of the asset if NBVs are used, thus giving managers an incentive to hang on to possibly inefficient, obsolescent machines. (Base your calculations on opening bookvalues).Would the investment centre manager wish to undertake theinvestment if performance is judged on RI? This will be perceived as fair but will result in the need for period-end adjustments in the accounts. However, other interest rates might be selected, such as the current cost of borrowing, or a target ROI. Learn faster with spaced repetition. As discussed, the use of ROI and RI does not always result in decisions that are in the best interests of the company. The remaining amount of special ingredient Z should be offered toManuco Ltd at the adjusted selling price of $13.50 per kg (as above). The Valve Division has average operating assets of P700,000. A division earning a ROI of 10% when the industry average is 7% may be considered to be performing better than a division earning a ROI of 12% when the industry average is 15%. Thebalance of its square capacity (1,000kg) has no opportunity cost andshould still be offered at marginal cost. This alternative use is equivalent to2,000kg of special ingredient Z and would earn a contribution of $6,000.There is no external demand. Baldenius, T. 2006. Contribution foregone = 2,500 Ã—$(40-22) = $45,000 reduction. The division would accept the investment since it generates an increase in RI of $1,000. The transfer price should be deemed to be fair by the managers of the buying and selling divisions. The baby division manufactures specialist foods for infants, which are sold to the largest UK Baby retail store. The external market price may not be stable. (i)The transfer price should be setbetween $35 and $38. The Sinclair C5 (a small, battery-powered car) isoften quoted as an example of this phenomenon. Division A produces one type of product, ProdX, which ittransfers to Division B and also sells externally. The conference paper by Johnson (2006, Review of Accounting Studies, forthcoming) develops an incomplete-contracting transfer pricing model with a number of novel features: taxation, sequential investments, and intangible assets being transferred. This Product includes content from the International Auditing and Assurance Standards Board (IAASB) and the International Ethics Standards Board for. (ii) when division Able is operating at full capacity with unsatisfied external demand for product X. Archer Group has two divisions, Division X and Division Y. DivisionX manufactures a component X8 which is transferred to Division Y.Division Y uses component X8 to make a finished product Y14, which itsells for $20. - The transfer pricing policy may distort divisional performance - Divisions may have assets of different ages. The transfer pricing policy may distort divisional performance. Each division is expected to generate a rate of return of at least 14 percent on its operating assets. Fixed costs inDivision Y, given a budget of 20,000 units, are $4 per unit. At a transfer price of $5, Division X would make $0 contribution from each unit transferred. Transfer pricing . Evaluation of RI as a performance measure. ROI is a popular measure for divisional performance but has someserious failings which must be considered when interpreting results. Baker supplies an external market and can obtain its semi-finishedsupplies (product Y) from either Able or an external source. One projectgives a profit of $20,000 and the other $12,000. (a) What decisions will be made bymanagement if they act in the best interests of their division (and inthe best interests of their bonus)? Data on capacity levels and resource requirements. State any additional information that would be useful when calculating the ROI. The investment centre manager will want to undertake the investmentbecause it will increase RI. The company's Electrical Division produces a variety of electrical items, including an X52 electrical fitting. Due to the specialist nature of theingredients these products have a very short life cycle. Helpco has production capacity for9,000kg of special ingredient Z. increasing transfer prices paid by the foreign subsidiary to the parent company (see below), lending the equivalent of the dividend to the parent company. market revenue. A company has two profit centres, Centre A and Centre B. Centre Asupplies Centre B with a part-finished product. If an external market exists for the transferred goods then the transfer price could be set at the external market price. Jon's decision - from a personal point of view, the ROI of Jon's division will go down and his bonus will be reduced or lost as a result. If performance is measured by RI, the RI for the period is: (Note: Capital employed is not available in this question and therefore net assets should be used as a substitute value). The Division would therefore make a loss of $40,000 (its fixed costs). Division Y has a marginal cost of $3 per unit, and earns revenue of$20 for each unit sold. The main use of transfer pricing is to measure the notional sales of one division to another division. In this situation Helpco has no alternativeopportunity for 3,000kg of its special ingredient Z. Note: Here is a classic example of ROI giving the wrongconclusion, in that a project that was worthwhile as far as the companywas concerned is rejected since it reduces the division's current ROI. Therefore, the divisionalmanager will be rewarded for holding onto old, and potentiallyinefficient, assets. TRANSFER PRICING FOR DIVISIONAL AUTONOMY 101 situations where suboptimal transfer prices result.6 The question is whether an optimal transfer price system which ensures corporate as well as divisional profit maximization can at the same time preserve the operating autonomy of the divisional manager. Divisional Performance and Transfer Pricing concepts discussed in this video. (a)Since Helpco Ltd has an external market,which is the opportunity foregone, the relevant transfer price would bethe external selling price of $15 per kg. Divisional managers will be demotivated if this is notachieved. What should the managers do if they act in the best interests of the company as a whole? The only outlet for product Y is Baker. This will slow down division B as well, unless adequate inventories are held. However, it is not always easy to distinguish between a star and adog. Johnson, N. 2006. The associated product costs are as follows: (a)Using the above information, provideadvice on the determination of an appropriate transfer price for thesale of product Y from division Able to division Baker under thefollowing conditions: (i)when division Able has spare capacity and limited external demand for product X, (ii) when division Able is operating at full capacity with unsatisfied external demand for product X. Copyright 2020. Left to their owndevices then the managers would end up accepting the project giving only$12,000. The company as a whole will be indifferent to the transfer price. Helpco processes and sells special ingredient Zto customers external to the group at $15 per kg. Our analysis identifies environments where particular variants of full-cost transfer pricing induce efficiency in both the initial investments and the subsequent output levels. Calculate the effect on the profit of division A. An external market is available for6,000 kgs of material Z. There is a natural conflict between the divisions and the transfer price would have to be negotiated to ensure that each division views it as being fair. Using the BCG matrix assess the competitive position of Food For Thought Ltd. Where products stand within the BCG matrix. This is known as a 'block on the remittances of dividends' i.e. A division earning a ROI of 10% when the industry average is 7% may be considered to be performing better than a division earning a ROI of 12% when the industry average is 15%. Division B has beenapproached by another company which has offered to supply 2,500 units ofProdX for $35 each. The selected cost of capital could be the company's average cost of funds (cost of capital). Almost two thirds of world trade takes place within multi-nationalcompanies. Kaplan Financial Limited. Internal transfers toManuco would enable $1.50 per kg of variable packing cost to be avoided. Discuss the transfer prices at which Helpco Ltd should offer totransfer special ingredient Z to Manuco Ltd in order that group profitmaximising decisions may be taken on financial grounds in each of thefollowing situations. Standard cost should be used rather than actual cost to avoid inefficiencies being transferred from one department to another and to aid planning and budgeting. Quality â€“ poor quality work in A will ultimately compromise the quality of the finished product. The company's cost ofcapital is 15%.

Competitors within the sector will resist any attempts to reducetheir share of a low growth or declining market. Recording the movement of goods and services. ROI would be lower; therefore the centre manager will not want tomake the investment. Assess the projects using both ROI and RI. This discussion aims to disentangle these features so as to highlight those that are the key drivers of the results. This is because ROI is a defective decision-making method anddoes not guarantee that the correct decision will be made. They have a relatively low market share in a high growth market.The Baby division would appear to fall into this category. It is unlikely that the manager of Division X would be prepared to negotiate this price with Division Y, and a decision to set the transfer price at $5 would probably have to be made by head office. If a perfectly competitive market exists for the product, then the market price is the best transfer price. An opportunity cost is a benefit that is forgone as a result of taking a particular action. Capital employed is total assets less long term liabilities. Althoughthe 11% is bad, it is better than before. There are two main approaches to setting transfer prices – market based approach and cost based approach. Many businesses have poured money into the development of productsthat they believed were potential stars only to find that those productsturned into dogs. Development costs and learning effects may give poor ROI initially. Other Approaches to Transfer Pricing. In the above example, the full cost for Division X of making component X8 is $7 ($5 variable plus $2 fixed). Helpco Ltd bases itstransfer price on total cost-plus 25% profit mark-up. A dog is characterised by a relatively low market share in a lowgrowth market and might well be loss making. This in turn will highlight key areas, i.e CSFs, that need to be monitored and controlled. discuss the problems encountered in planning, controlling and measuring performance levels, e.g. If the price is setabove $38, Baker will be encouraged to buy outside the group, decreasinggroup profit by $3 per unit. The only outlet for product Y is Baker. This will be adjusted to allowfor the $1.50 per kg avoided on internal transfers due to packing costsnot required. Blocked remittances might be avoided by means of: Note: The government of the foreign country might try to prevent many of these measures being used. Ratio analysis Ã¢â¬â there are several profitability and liquidity measures that can be applied to divisional performance reports. (a)Calculate the effect on the profit of division A. Marginal costs (i.e. the transfer price is $13.50 per kg. Division B is basedin Southland, a country with a tax rate of 20%. It is based on accounting measures of profit and capital employed which may be subject to manipulation, e.g. Lutchmee Murchoyea Start studying Divisional Performance Management and Transfer Pricing. Note: Transfer pricing is when you charge other departments/ divisions in the organisation for the goods and services that you provide them. Transfer pricing in multi-national companies has thefollowing complications: The selling and buying divisions will be based in differentcountries. Discuss how a multinational company could avoid the problem of blocked remittances. X plc, a manufacturing company, has two divisions: Division A andDivision B. Estimate the Economic Value Added (EVA) for Trout Inc for both 20X7 and 20X8. The manager of Division A will not want to accept the project asit lowers her ROI from 30% to 27.5%. Since Helpco Ltd has an external market,which is the opportunity foregone, the relevant transfer price would bethe external selling price of $15 per kg. External bought-in prices from suppliers outside the group. The Organic division appears to be a cash cow since it has a veryhigh market share in what can be regarded as a low growth market. The profit of the company as a whole will be maximised if DivisionsX and Y produce up to their capacity, or to the maximum volume of salesdemand. This will be adjusted to allowfor the $1.50 per kg avoided on internal transfers due to packing costsnot required. productivity, profitability, quality and service levels, in complex business structures. If theprice is set above $38, Baker will be encouraged to buy outside thegroup, decreasing group profit by $3 per unit. However, although full cost represents the long-term opportunitycost to Division X of transferring units of X8, it is not an idealtransfer price. If this assumption is used, ROI would be $28,000/$112,000 = 25.0%. an adjustment should be made to reflect the replacement cost of non-current assets rather than the book value. It could be argued, however, that Division Y would not want to sellProduct Y14 at all if it made a loss. The totalcost in Division Y is $7 ($3 + $4). What would be the ROI with andwithout the investment? It will usually be necessary to charge the receiving division for the goods that it has received in order for performance to be measured equitably. There are two approaches to transfer pricing which try to preserve the economic information inherent in variable costs while permitting the transferring division to make profits, and allowing better performance valuation . If Able supplies Baker with a unitof Y, it will cost $35 and they (both Able and the group) will lose $10contribution from X ($42 sales Ã¢â¬â $32 variable cost). Helpco Ltd has an alternative usefor some of its production capacity, which will yield a contributionequivalent to $3 per kg of special ingredient Z ($6,000/2,000kg). The promoters of thisproduct in the 1980s proceeded on the basis that there was a market forsuch a car as a means of urban transport and that the C5 would enjoy ahigh share of this market. The short-term opportunity cost to Division X of transferring units of X8 to Division Y is the marginal cost of production, $5. Able manufacturestwo products, X and Y. SOUTH PLC has two divisions A and B, whose respective performances are under review. (a)Helpco Ltd has an external market for allits production of special ingredient Z at a selling price of $15 per kg.Internal transfers to Manuco Ltd would enable $1.50 per kg of variablepacking cost to be avoided. Division B has been offered a project costing$100,000 and giving annual returns of $12,000. Total cost hasbeen estimated as 75% variable and 25% fixed. Calculated the budgeted annual profit for each division and for thecompany as a whole of the transfer price for the components supplied bydivision A to division B is: (c) Evaluate both transfer prices fromthe perspective of each individual division and from the perspective ofthe company as a whole. Conditions are as per (i) but Helpco Ltd hasproduction capacity for 3,000kg of special ingredient Z for which noexternal market is available. (Base your calculations on opening bookvalues).Would the investment centre manager wish to undertake theinvestment if performance is judged on RI? Accountants (IESBA), published by the International Federation of Accountants (IFAC) in December 2012 and is used with permission of IFAC. Thisalternative use is equivalent to 2,000kg of special ingredient Z andwould earn a contribution of $6,000. There may not be an external market price. An opportunity has arisen to invest in a new project costing$100,000. (Base your calculations on opening book values).Would the investment centre manager wish to undertake the investment ifperformance is judged on ROI? Making a specific charge for interest helps to make investment centre managers more aware of the cost of the assets under their control. Two divisions of a company are considering new investments. Baker supplies an external market and can obtain its semi-finishedsupplies (product Y) from either Able or an external source. The transfer pricing policy may distort divisional performance. Thisequipment was paid for by the central treasury department of Babbage,and is recorded in the accounts as an inter-company loan. The transfer price is the price at which good or services are transferred from one division to another within the same organisation. Helpco Ltd should offer to transfer: 2,000kgat $7.50 + $3 = $10.50 per kg; 1,000kg at $7.50per kg (= marginal cost);and the balance of requirements at $13.50 per kg. The decisions made by each profit centre manager should beconsistent with the objectives of the organisation as a whole, i.e. Productivity â€“ suppose some staff in division A are ill, slowing down the supply of components to division B. A country's government may impose restrictions on the transfer of profits from domestic subsidiaries to foreign multinationals. Helpco Ltd should offer to transfer: 2,000kgat $7.50 + $3 = $10.50 per kg; 1,000kg at $7.50per kg (= marginal cost);and the balance of requirements at $13.50 per kg. (Base your calculations on opening book values).Would the investment centre manager wish to undertake the investment ifperformance is judged on ROI? RI = Controllable profit Ã¢â¬â Notional interest on capital, Test your understanding 3 - RI calculation. Product X is sold to external customers for $42per unit. This isvariable cost less packing costs avoided = $9 â€“ $1.50 = $7.50 per kg(note: total cost = $15 x 80% = $12; variable cost = $12 x 75% =$9). Transfer prices are a way of promoting divisional autonomy, ideally without prejudicing the measurement of divisional performance or discouraging overall corporate profit maximisation. However, this is not in the best interests of the company since theROI (20%) is greater than the company's cost of capital (10%). View Lecture 10 (Chapters 19 and 20).pdf from BEC 22806 at Wageningen University. The marketleader enjoys a 25% share whilst the Baby division appear to bestruggling to achieve growth in turnover and hence profits. (a)Division A will lose the contribution frominternal transfers to Division B. A product that has a highgrowth potential offers obvious advantages but it is typicallyassociated with high development costs because of the need to developthe product itself and/or maintain the high market share. If the price is setabove $38, Baker will be encouraged to buy outside the group, decreasinggroup profit by $3 per unit. It should,therefore, offer to transfer this quantity at marginal cost.
