    Victoria Kite Company sells kites on the web wants a master budget for the next three months beginning January 1, 2005.

    1) It desires an ending minimum cash balance of $5,000 each month

    2) Sales forecasted at an average wholesale selling price of $8 per kite. In January, Vcitoria Kiet is beginning just-in-time (JIT) deliveries from suppliers, which menas that purchases equal expected sales

    3) On january 1, purchases will cease until inventory reaches $8,000, after which time purchases will equal sales. Merchandise costs average $4 perkite.

    4) Purchases during any given month are paid in full during the following month.

    5) All sales are on credit, payable within 30 days, but experience has shown that: 60% of current sales are collected in the current month, 30% in the next month, and 10% in the month thereafter. Bad debts are negligible.

    6) Monthly operating expenses are as follows: Wages and salaries $15,000; Insurance expired 125; Depreciation 250; Miscellanesou 2,500; Rent 250/months + 10% of quarterly sales over 10,000
