As a percentage of labor hours, G&A costs tend to be in the 10–25 percent range   There are six basis (methods) to calculate an overhead cost absorption rate. The use of this method requires a record of the direct labor hours expended on

### Predetermined overhead rate = Budgeted direct labour hours. N\$720 4.1 Compute the predetermined (budgeted) overhead absorption rate per machine hour,

If estimated factory overhead is \$300,000 and total direct labor hours are estimated to be 200,000 hours, an overhead rate based on direct labor hours would be \$1.50 per hour of direct labor (\$300,000 / 200,000 hours). A job that required 400 direct labor hours would be charged with \$600 (400 hours X \$1.50) for factory overhead.
