Built-Tight is preparing its master budget for the quarter ended September 30. Budgeted sales
and cash payments for product costs for the quarter follow.
Sales are 20% cash and 80% on credit. All credit sales are collected in the month following the
sale. The June 30 balance sheet includes balances of $15,000 in cash; $45,000 in accounts
receivable; $4,500 in accounts payable; and a $5,000 balance in loans payable. A minimum
cash balance of $15,000 is required. Loans are obtained at the end of any month when a cash
shortage occurs. Interest is 1% per month based on the beginning-of-the-month loan balance
and is paid at each month-end. If an excess balance of cash exists, loans are repaid at the end
of the month. Operating expenses are paid in the month incurred and consist of sales
commissions (10% of sales), office salaries ($4,000 per month), and rent ($6,500 per month).
Prepare a cash budget for each of the months of July, August, and September. (Round
amounts to the dollar.)
