Ch24 SE1 to SE3 CHAPTER 24—Solutions THE BUDGETING PROCESS Chapter 24, SE 1. Budgets and information that might be useful include: 1. Breakdown by month of last year's sales to use as a guide to build this year's monthly targets. This would include seasonal sales information. 2. Budgets by salesperson, which may indicate a need for a third salesperson. 3. Inventory and purchasing information. 4. Budgets of sales promotion and advertising. 5. Information on customer flow and the best times to sell. Chapter 24, SE 2. Andi Kures should regularly analyze all differences between budgeted and actual figures to determine if her actual results were in line with her budgeted expectations. If they were not, she needs to take corrective operating actions for unfavorable vari- ances. She should also investigate favorable variances to determine if these efficien- cies can be implemented elsewhere in the future. She should perform such an analy- sis regularly, even if the organization has experienced a profitable period. Budgetary control is an ongoing activity. Chapter 24, SE 3. The amount of estimated sales in units is the most important forecast. It is the key to an accurate master budget. The entire master budget is based on the unit sales fore- cast. Total budgeted sales, budgeted selling and administrative expenses, and bud- geted total production units are all directly related to the estimated unit sales. From these budgets and the budgeted production units come the direct materials pur- chases and direct labor budgets. The overhead budget usually results from produc- tion forecasts. Therefore, all operating budgets related to production are based on the estimated sales in units.
