On December 1, 2011, the Itami Wholesale Co. is attempting to project cash receipts and disbursements through January 31, 2012. On this latter date, a note will be payable in the amount of $100,000. This amount was borrowed in September to carry the company through the seasonal peak in November and December. Selected general ledger balances on December 1 are as follows: Cash $ 88,000 Inventory 65,200 Accounts payable 136,000 Sales terms call for a 3% discount if payment is made within the first 10 days of the month after sale, with the balance due by the end of the month after sale. Experience has shown that 50% of the billings will be collected within the discount period, 30% by the end of the month after purchase, and 14% in the following month. The remaining 6% will be uncollectible. There are no cash sales. The average selling price of the company’s products is $100 per unit. Actual and projected sales are as follows: October actual $ 280,000 November actual 320,000 December estimated 330,000 January estimated 250,000 February estimated 240,000 Total estimated for year ending June 30, 2012 $2,400,000 All purchases are payable within 15 days. Approximately 60% of the purchases in a month are paid that month, and the rest the following month. The average unit purchase cost is $80. Target ending inventories are 500 units plus 10% of the next month’s unit sales. Total budgeted marketing, distribution, and customer-service costs for the year are $600,000. Of this amount, $120,000 are considered fixed (and include depreciation of $30,000). The remainder varies with sales.
