Problem 20-3A Merchandising: Preparation and analysis of cash budgets with supporting inventory and purchases budgets LO C2, P2.

Aztec Company sells its product for \$170 per unit.  Its actual and projected sales follow.

Units                  Dollars

April (actual)              9,500                  \$1,615,000

May  (actual)              2,400                       408,000

June (budgeted)        7,000                        1,190,000

July (budgeted)          8,000                       1,360,000

August (budgeted)    4,100                       697,000

All sales are on credit. Recent experience shows that 26% of credit sales is collected in the month of the sale, 44% in the month after the sale, 29% in the second month after the sale, and 1% proves to be uncollectible. The product's purchase price is \$110 per unit.  All purchases are payable within 11 days.  Thus, 60% of purchases made in a month is paid in that month and the other 40% is paid in the next month.  The company has a policy to maintain an ending monthly inventory of 18% of the next month's unit sales plus a safety stock of 195 units.  The April 30 and May 31 actual inventory levels are consistent with this policy.  Selling and administrative expenses for the year are \$1,716,000 and are paid evenly throughout the year in cash.  The company's minimum cash balance at month-end is \$120,000.  This minimum is maintained, if necessary, by borrowing cash from the bank.  If the balance exceeds \$120,000, the company repays as much of the loan as it can without going below the minimum.  This type of loan carries an annual 12% interest rate.  On May 31, the loan balance is \$30,500 and the company's cash balance is \$120,000.  (Round final answers to the nearest whole dollar.)
