Collections from customers are normally 70 percent in the month of the sale, 20 percent in the month following the sale, and 9 percent in the second month following sale. The balance is expected to be uncollectable. All purchases are on account. Management takes full advantage of the 2% discount allowed on purchases paid for by the tenth of the following month. Purchases for August are budgeted at $60,000, and sales for August are forecasted at $66,000. Cash disbursements for expenses are expected to be $14,000 for the month of August. The company's cash balance on August 1 was $22,000.
1. Figure the schedule for expected cash collections during August.
2. Figure the schedule for expected cash disbursements during August.
3. Figure the schedule for expected cash balance on August 31.
The solution explains how to prepare a schedule for expected cash collections and a schedule for expected cash disbursements and determine the ending cash balance.
