  1. Sales for March total 23,200 units. Forecasted sales in units are as follows: April, 23,200; May, 17,100; June, 21,900; and July, 23,200. Sales of 257,000 units are forecasted for the entire year. The product’s selling price is $25.00 per unit and its total product cost is $20.50 per unit.
  2. Company policy calls for a given month’s ending raw materials inventory to equal 50% of the next month’s materials requirements. The March 31 raw materials inventory is 4,580 units, which complies with the policy. The expected June 30 ending raw materials inventory is 5,700 units. Raw materials cost $20 per unit. Each finished unit requires 0.50 units of raw materials.
  3. Company policy calls for a given month’s ending finished goods inventory to equal 80% of the next month’s expected unit sales. The March 31 finished goods inventory is 18,560 units, which complies with the policy.
  4. Each finished unit requires 0.50 hours of direct labor at a rate of $13 per hour.
  5. Overhead is allocated based on direct labor hours. The predetermined variable overhead rate is $4.40 per direct labor hour. Depreciation of $37,320 per month is treated as fixed factory overhead.
  6. Sales representatives’ commissions are 5% of sales and are paid in the month of the sales. The sales manager’s monthly salary is $4,700.
  7. Monthly general and administrative expenses include $29,000 administrative salaries and 0.8% monthly interest on the long-term note payable.
  8. The company expects 20% of sales to be for cash and the remaining 80% on credit. Receivables are collected in full in the month following the sale (none are collected in the month of the sale).
  9. All raw materials purchases are on credit, and no payables arise from any other transactions. One month’s raw materials purchases are fully paid in the next month.
  10. The minimum ending cash balance for all months is $99,000. If necessary, the company borrows enough cash using a short-term note to reach the minimum. Short-term notes require an interest payment of 1% at each month-end (before any repayment). If the ending cash balance exceeds the minimum, the excess will be applied to repaying the short-term notes payable balance.
  11. Dividends of $27,000 are to be declared and paid in May.
  12. No cash payments for income taxes are to be made during the second calendar quarter. Income tax will be assessed at 40% in the quarter and paid in the third calendar quarter.

Prepare the following budgets and other financial information as required.
