Beginning Cash

Based on the information below, you are to prepare operations budgets, financial budgets and schedules for a bicycle manufacturer.  

Note: When using calculations in the template you should transfer values of rounded whole numbers, i.e. not just adjusting the number of digits to the right of the decimal. Doing calculations in sheets referencing cells in other sheets instead of transferring rounded whole numbers will cause schedules/budgets to not reconcile.


Scenario:

Wing Bicycle Company manufactures and sells 2 sizes of bicycles, 21.5 inch and 22.5 inch.

Sales

Their sales team has committed to the following projected monthly unit sales for the next year.

Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec

21.5 Bike 368 472 633 616 443 345 322 317 317 317 328 420

22.5 Bike 320 410 550 535 385 300 280 275 275 275 285 365

The selling price for the 21.5 inch bike is $455. For the 22.5 inch bike it is $490. The desired ending inventory for each month is 15% of the following month's sales for the 21.5 inch bike and 12% for the 22.5 inch bike. The inventory at January 1 of the budget year is expected to be 55 units of the 21.5 inch bike and 38 units of the 22.5 inch bike.  The projected sales for Jan of the year following the budget are 385 of the 21.5 inch bike and 350 for the 22.5 inch bike.


Materials

The total materials for the 21.5 inch bike and 22.5 inch bike are $164.45 and $186.30 respectively (Bill of Materials in workbook for information purposes). 

The production department would like to have an ending raw materials inventory of 20% of the next month's production requirements. Desired ending production inventory for December is $15,700 for 21.5 inch bike and $15,300 for 22.5 inch bike. Beginning raw materials inventory value for Jan of the budget year are $16,370 for the 21.5 inch bike and $18,597 for the 22.5 inch bike.

Direct Labor

Direct labor is 3.9 hours at $15.25 per hour for the 21.5 inch bike and 4.4 hours at $15.25 per hour for the 22.5 inch bike (Process sheet in workbook for information purposes).


Manufacturing Overhead

Manufacturing Overhead is based on direct labor hours at a rate of $22.25 per DLH for each of the bikes.

Budgeted monthly fixed overhead is as follows: 


Salaries $5,000

Utilities 2,200

Depreciation 7,200

Maintenance 2,800

Insurance 2,000

Property Taxes 1,200


Cash

Cash is expected to be collected at 55% of the prior month sales and 45% of the sales from 2 months prior.  Nov/Dec sales for the prior year are $422,000 and $475,000 respectively.

Monthly cash disbursements for materials are 50% of current month's purchases and 50% of last month's purchases. Trade accounts payable should be based on materials purchases and the balance at Dec 31 of the year prior to the budget year is estimated to be $42,000.

Assume all other expenses are paid in the month incurred.

The beginning cash balance for Jan of the budget year is estimated to be $ 39,979

The company has estimated balance sheet amounts as of Jan 1 of $225,000 for Land, $1,280,000 for Property, Plant & Equipment, $2,125,000 for Common Stock and Retained Earnings of $510,915.
