The Gladden Corporation began a business as a manufacturing company on January 1, 2014. Its first fiscal year will end on December 31, 2014. Gladden uses a job-order costing system and applies manufacturing overhead cost to jobs using a predetermined overhead rate based on direct labour cost. At the beginning of 2014, the following estimates were made as a basis for computing the predetermined overhead rate for the year:

Budgeted manufacturing overhead cost for 2014: $355,200
