Prepare a 2006 master budget based on the 2003-2005 actual performances for a presentation about meeting company goals. Communicate your assumptions and calculations that went into the preparation.

The most likely case scenario is based on the numbers of the years 2003-2005. As we can notice, the numbers in the master budget are higher than those of actual year 2005.
