Cost Sheet

Cost Sheet is prepared to find the cost of the production , cost of goods sold and cost of sales. This is prepared to know the associated cost of product with profit so that Management can take decision to reduce the cost and maximize the profit.

There are following steps to prepare the cost sheet-

1- To know the production and sales during the period.

2- Calculate raw material consumed for the production as follows-

Opening stock                                       ………

Add: Purchase                                       ………

Less: Closing stock                                ——

Cost of Raw Material Consumed

3- Prime Cost: Prime Cost is the sum total of Raw Material Cost+ Direct Labour and other Direct Exp.

4- Cost of  production: When we add Manufacturing overhead in prime cost, then sum total of it is known as cost of production

5-Cost of Sales: When we add Admin and selling expenses in the cost of production, we find cost of sales

Note: If there is any  opening opening and closing stock of WIP  and finished stock, we do adjustment in the cost of production and cost of sales.
