Question

Question;COURSE PROJECT A INSTRUCTIONSYou have just been hired as a new management trainee by Earrings Unlimited, a distributor of earrings to various retail outlets located in shopping malls across the country. In the past, the company has done very little in the way of budgeting and at certain times of the year has experienced a shortage of cash.Since you are well trained in budgeting, you have decided to prepare comprehensive budgets for the upcoming second quarter in order to show management the benefits that can be gained from an integrated budgeting program. To this end, you have worked with accounting and other areas to gather the information assembled below.The company sells many styles of earrings, but all are sold for the same price?$10 per pair. Actual sales of earrings for the last three months and budgeted sales for the next six months follow (in pairs of earrings):The concentration of sales before and during May is due to Mother's Day. Sufficient inventory should be on hand at the end of each month to supply 40% of the earrings sold in the following month.Suppliers are paid $4 for a pair of earrings. One-half of a month's purchases is paid for in the month of purchase, the other half is paid for in the following month. All sales are on credit, with no discount, and payable within 15 days. The company has found, however, that only 20% of a month's sales are collected in the month of sale. An additional 70% is collected in the following month, and the remaining 10% is collected in the second month following sale. Bad debts have been negligible.Monthly operating expenses for the company are given below:Insurance is paid on an annual basis, in November of each year.The company plans to purchase $16,000 in new equipment during May and $40,000 in new equipment during June, both purchases will be for cash. The company declares dividends of $15,000 each quarter, payable in the first month of the following quarter.A listing of the company's ledger accounts as of March 31 is given below:The company maintains a minimum cash balance of $50,000. All borrowing is done at the beginning of a month, any repayments are made at the end of a month.The company has an agreement with a bank that allows the company to borrow in increments of $1,000 at the beginning of each month. The interest rate on these loans is 1% per month and for simplicity we will assume that interest is not compounded. At the end of the quarter, the company would pay the bank all of the accumulated interest on the loan and as much of the loan as possible (in increments of $1,000), while still retaining at least $50,000 in cash.Required:Prepare a master budget for the three-month period ending June 30. Include the following detailed budgets:? 1.o a. A sales budget, by month and in total.o b. A schedule of expected cash collections from sales, by month and in total.o c. A merchandise purchases budget in units and in dollars. Show the budget by month and in total.o d. A schedule of expected cash disbursements for merchandise purchases, by month and in total.? 2. A cash budget. Show the budget by month and in total. Determine any borrowing that would be needed to maintain the minimum cash balance of $50,000.? 3. A budgeted income statement for the three-month period ending June 30. Use the contribution approach.? 4. A budgeted balance sheet as of June 30.Course Project AFor Project A, you will need to review the Course Project Instructions in Document Sharing. An Excel template file can be also found in Doc Sharing. Use it to do your master budget and supporting schedules. This project will help you learn and understand what a master budget is and how it is prepared. When you have completed Project A, upload it into the Dropbox. There will be a discussion thread area in Weeks 4 and 5 that you can use to ask questions about the project.

One possibility currently being examined is to make the paint cans instead of purchasing them. The equipment needed would cost $200,000 with a disposal value of $40,000 and would be able to produce 5,500,000 cans over the life of the machinery. The production department estimates that approximately 1,100,000 cans would be needed for each of the next five years.The company would hire three new employees. These three individuals would be full-time employees working 2,000 hours per year and earning $12.00 per hour. They would also receive the same benefits as other production employees, 18% of wages in addition to $2,500 of health benefits.It is estimated that the raw materials will cost 25? per can and that other variable costs would be 5? per can. Since there is currently unused space in the factory, no additional fixed costs would be incurred if this proposal is accepted.It is expected that cans would cost 45? per can if purchased from the current supplier. The company's minimum rate of return (hurdle rate) has been determined to be 12% for all new projects, and the current tax rate of 35% is anticipated to remain unchanged. The pricing for a gallon of paint as well as number of units sold will not be affected by this decision. The unit-of-production depreciation method would be used if the new equipment is purchased.Required:1. Based on the above information and using Excel, calculate the following items for this proposed equipment purchase:Annual cash flows over the expected life of the equipmentPayback periodAnnual rate of returnNet present valueInternal rate of return2. Would you recommend the acceptance of this proposal? Why or why not. Prepare a short double spaced Word paper elaborating and supporting your answer.Course Project BClark Paints: The Production Department has been investigating possible ways to trim total production costs.
