Case II Pialligo Stationery

Pialligo Stationery has changed from being a traditional stationery company to a producer of compact flash disks which it markets as a portable and reliable data storage solution. The Budget Director Jane Good is preparing to build its master budget for the coming year (2005). The budget will detail each quarter's activity and the activity for the year in total. The master budget will be based on the following information.

? Fourth quarter sales for 2004 are 55,000 units
? Projected unit sales by quarter for 2005 are as follows:

First quarter 65,000
Second quarter 70,000
Third quarter 75,000
Fourth quarter 90,000

? The selling price is $400 per unit. All sales are credit sales. Pialligo collects 85% of all sales within the quarter in which they are realised, the other 15% is collected in the following quarter. There are no bad debts.
? There is no beginning inventory of finished goods. Pialligo is planning the following ending finished goods for each quarter:

First quarter 13,000
Second quarter 15,000
Third quarter 20,000
Fourth quarter 10,000
