Under this case do we reduce Material that has been left in inventory not used to the purchase price to determine the cost of completion? I’m studying ASC 606 and need to consider the material that is not being used to calculate percentage of completion. Can someone please help me understand this and if it applies to this case?
Copyright 2018 Deloitte Development LLC All Rights Reserved. Case 18-3 Nailed It! Construction Nailed It! Construction (Nailed It! or the “Company”), an SEC registrant, is a construction company that manufactures commercial and residential buildings. On March 1, 20X1, the Company entered into an agreement with a customer, Village Apartments, to construct a residential apartment building for a fixed price of $1.5 million.
The Company estimates that it will incur costs of $1 million to complete construction of the apartment building. The apartment building will only transfer to Village Apartments once the construction of the entire building is complete. In addition, Village Apartments has various design requirements that would require Nailed It! to incur significant costs to rework the building prior to selling it to a customer other than Village Apartments.
To construct the apartment building, Nailed It! acquires standard materials that it regularly uses in construction contracts for both residential and commercial buildings. These materials are used to manufacture generic component parts for inclusion in Village Apartments’ residential buildings. These standard materials remain interchangeable with other items until they are deployed in a Village Apartments building. The Company has made the following purchases and incurred the following costs throughout the construction progress:
•As of June 30, 20X1, in total, Nailed It! has purchased $75,000 of component parts. As of June 30, 20X1, $25,000 of component parts remain in inventory and $50,000 have been integrated into the project. Further, Nailed It! has incurred $12,500 of direct costs to integrate the component parts into the Village Apartments construction project during the three months ended June 30, 20X1.
•During the three months ended September 30, 20X1, Nailed It! purchased an additional $500,000 of component parts ($575,000 in total). Of the $575,000 of component parts, $325,000 remain in inventory and $200,000 have been integrated into the project during the three months ended September 30, 20X1. During the three months ended September 30, 20X1, Nailed It! incurred an additional $50,000 of direct costs to integrate the component parts into the Village Apartments construction project.
•As of September 30, 20X1, Nailed It! determined that the project was over budget and revised its cost estimate from $1 million to $1.25 million.
•As of December 31 20X1, the construction project was completed. During the three months ended December 31, 20X1, Nailed It! purchased an additional $425,000 of generic component parts ($1 million in total). Of the $1 million component parts, $0 remain in inventory and $750,000 were integrated into the project during the three months ended December 31, 20X1. Nailed It! has incurred $187,500 of direct costs to integrate the component parts into the Village Apartments construction project during the three months ended December 31, 20X1. If Village Apartments cancels the contract, Nailed It! will be entitled to reimbursement for costs incurred for work completed to date plus a margin of 20 percent, which is
