    Overheads are over-applied by $5,600

    Explanation:

    Company's expected manufacturing overhead = $896,000

    Budgeted labor hours = 80,000 hours

    Rate per hour = $896,000/80,000 = $11.2 per labor hour

    Actual overheads incurred = $924,000

    Actual labor hours = 82,000

    Actual rate per hour = $924,000/82,000 = $11.268

    Actual overheads at budgeted rate for actual hours = 82,000 X $11.2 = $918,400

    Since actual overheads are higher by $924,000 - $918,400 = $5,600

    Overheads are over-applied by $5,600
