â€¢ Sales for December total 12,000 units. Each month's sales are expected to exceed the prior month's results by 5%. The product's selling price is \$15 per unit.
â€¢ Company policy calls for a given month's ending inventory to equal 80% of the next month's expected unit sales. The December 31 2012 inventory is 9,400 units, which complies with the policy. The purchase price is \$8 per unit.
â€¢ Sales representatives' commissions are 10.0% of sales and are paid in the month of the sales. The sales manager's monthly salary will be \$3,500 in January and \$4,000 per month thereafter.
â€¢ Monthly general and administrative expenses include \$8,000 administrative salaries, \$5,000 depreciation, and 0.9% monthly interest on the long-term note payable.
â€¢ The company expects 30% of sales to be for cash and the remaining 70% on credit. Receivables are collected in full in the month following the sale (none is collected in the month of sale).
â€¢ All merchandise purchases are on credit, and no payables arise from any other transactions. One month's purchases are fully paid in the next month.
â€ƒ
â€¢ The minimum ending cash balance for all months is \$140,000. If necessary, the company borrows enough cash using a short-term note to reach the minimum. Short-term notes require an interest payment of 1% at each month-end (before any repayment). If the ending cash balance exceeds the minimum, the excess will be applied to repaying the short-term notes payable balance.
â€¢ Dividends of \$100,000 are to be declared and paid in February.
â€¢ No cash payments for income taxes are to be made during the first calendar quarter. Income taxes will be assessed at 35% in the quarter.
