GNB 13e Practice Exam Solutions Chapter 10

1. Solution (Learning Objective 1):

The major weaknesses of static budgets include the following:

; Static budgets are geared only to a single level of activity.

; Static budgets cannot be used to assess whether variable costs are under control.

; Static budgets force the manager to compare actual costs at one level of activity to

budgeted costs at a different level of activity.

2. Solution (Learning Objective 1):

The characteristics of a planning budget include the following:

; A planning budget is prepared before the period begins but is valid for only the

planned level of activity.

; A static planning budget is suitable for planning but is inappropriate for evaluating

how well costs are controlled.

3. Solution (Learning Objective 1):

The characteristics of a planning budget include the following:

; A flexible budget takes into account how changes in activity affect costs.

; It is an estimate of what revenues and costs should have been, given the actual

level of activity for the period.

; When used in performance evaluation, actual costs are compared to what the costs

should have been for the actual level of activity during the period rather than to the

static planning budget.
