You are recently employed as a graduate consultant in a management consultancy firm. One of your firm’s clients is currently evaluating its budgeting system. The CEO of your client had recently attended a seminar on Time-Driven Activity-Based Costing (TDABC) in private organisations and would like to know whether the TDABC is suitable to the company. Your manager has asked you to prepare a report for the client.
You are required to prepare a report to comment on the suitability of the TDABC for a company of your choice (your firm’s client). The report should cover the followings:
- a) A description of your firm’s client
- b) A description of the TDABC and its features
- c) In what ways TDABC is different from Activity-Based Costing and traditional costing systems
- d) A discussion on whether the TDABC is suitable to your firm’s client
