You will note that there is no "Cumulative Column" Why?
Because this report shows rolling figures (Start and End Balance) from month to month
so Grand Totals (Cumulative) are of no real benefit

You'll also note that I have pasted in the Row Headings in Column A and B into Column L and M
This helps me stay on track by minimizing the amount of horizontal scrolling I have to do.

Excess cash (from the minimum requirement) after paying back the loan $0 $0 $0 $0 $0 $0 $0 $75,000 $167,250

c. Based on you findings in part b, will the company need any outside financing? What is the minimum line of credit that CBM will need?

The company will need outside financing

Month Cumulative Financing Required Maximum loan will be at the end of June= $181,750 =35000+67500+181750
March $35,000
April $67,500
May $58,000
June $181,750
July $136,250 The company can start repaying the loan from the excess cash generated after July
August $58,750
September $5,000
October $0
November $0

A line of credit sets a maximum amount of funds available from the bank, to be used when needed
Minimum line of credit= $181,750

d. What do you think of CBM's cash position during the budget period? Do you see any concerns for the company in this regard?

The company would require outside financing to the tune of $181,750
From the excess cash position we see that this loan can be completely repaid by the month of October

Since the company is generating a cash surplus from July onwards and is in a position to repay the loan there are no reasons for concern
