7-29 Purchases and Sales Budgets
All sales of Carol’s Jeans and Uniforms (CJU) are made on credit. Sales are billed twice monthly, on the fifth of the month for the last half of the prior month’s sales and on the twentieth of the month for the first half of the current month’s sales. For accounts paid within the first 10 days after the billing date, CJU gives customers a 2% discount; otherwise the full amount is due within 30 days of billing date, and customers that do not pay within the 10-day period generally wait the full 30 days before making payment.

Based on past experience, the collection experience of accounts receivable is:
Within the 10-day discount period 80%
At 30 days after billing 18%
Uncollectible 2%

Sales for May 20X8 were $750,000. The forecast sales for the next four months are:
June 800,000
July 900,000
August 900,000
September 600,000

CJU’s average markup on its products is 40% of the sales price. CJU purchase merchandise for resale to meet the current month’s sales demand and to maintain a desired monthly ending inventory of 25% of the next month’s cost of goods sold. All purchases are on credit. CJU pays for one-half of a month’s purchases in the month of purchases and the other half in the month following the purchase. All sales and purchases occur uniformly throughout the month.
