The management estimates total sales for the period January, 2019 through June, 2019 based on actual sales from the immediate past six months. The following assumptions are made:

ï‚· The Sales were $140,000 in July 2018 and then the sales grew by 2% each month in the first three months (i.e., from August to October 2018) and by 5% in the next two months (i.e., in November and December 2018). The sales are expected to grow by 1% each month thereafter.

ï‚· 35% of the Sales are collected in the same month. 33% of the sales are collected in the following month. 31% of the sales are collected after two months and the remainder are not collected.

 The Purchases are 70% of each month’s sales and paid in the same month.

ï‚· Wages and Salaries are $25,000 each month and paid in the same month.

ï‚· Other administrative expenses are $15,000 and paid in the same month.

ï‚· Depreciation expense is $5,000 each month.

ï‚· An electrical device worth $30,000 will be purchased in April 2019. 50% of the amount due will be paid immediately and the balance will be paid in May, 2019.

ï‚· The company had previously taken a loan of $125,000. The annual interest rate on the loan amount is 5%. The interest is paid twice a year in June and December each year. Assume that no principal repayments are made in this period, only interest payments are made.

ï‚· The company pays rent of $3,500 quarterly (in March, June, September, and December each year).
