Question 2

Case study
Hugo is the manager of a medium-sized retailing operation and is concerned about the collection of monies for goods sold. He has a current policy for collecting monies from credit customers and all goods are sold on credit. He has actual sales data for the first six months of the financial year and projected sales figures for the six months to credit customers. I-le wishes to consider the impact of adjusting the policy and has two proposals in mind. The policies are below:
Timing of payment Payment under current olic Projected payment under olic o tion '1 Projected payment under polic o tion 2
1 st month after sale 60% of monies collected
2nd month after sale 25% of monies collected 5%
3rd month after sale 14% of monies collected 7% 3%
4th month after sale
His sales figures are as follows.
Sales fi ures
Actual for first six months Predicted for next six months
Jul $100,000 Janua $120,000
August $115,000 Februa $125,000
September $115,000 March $125,000
October $100,000 A ril $120,000
November $120,000 Ma $120,000
December $140,000 June $110,000
There is one additional question Hugo wants answered: is there any advantage from a cashflow perspective of offering a two percent discount if accounts are settled in the first month? His view is that most of his customers would pay in the first month and the remaining would pay in the next month, and no bad debts would need to be written off.
1 . Describe a budget development coordination and approval process.
2. For what reasons might you adjust the format or methods of communication about budgets to employees?
3. Analyse the optional policies and make a recommendation to Hugo as to which policy he should consider as the better option. Include in your response a projected cashflow spreadsheet for each of the proposals.
4. Provide feedback on Hugo's additional question.

Scenario background information
Big Red Bicycle is a bicycle manufacturer based in Bendigo, Victoria. The company produces bicycles which it sells to retailers in the domestic Australian market.
The senior management structure of the company appears below:
Person Position
Michelle CEO
Tom Co eland Mana ing Director
John Black CFO
Stuart LaRoux O erations General Manager
Pat Roberts Senior Accountant
Sam Gellar Sales General Mana er
Charles Pierce Production Mana er
I-loll Burke HR Mana er
According to company strategic plans, the company had aimed to achieve a net profit before tax of $1 Actual figures showed the company fell about $175,000 short of goals.
After successful labour cost cutting measures and improved sales team performance, the company aims to generate a net profit before tax of $1 , 200,000 from Australian operations alone.
This year, in addition to Australian operations, the company is considering manufacturing overseas to take advantage of reduced costs. The company is also considering diversifying its product range to reduce exposure to poor sales of one product.
The board of directors of Big Red Bicycles feels that more cash will be needed to make investments to achieve strategic aims. One chief risk to plans is bad debt and poor cash flow due to large and unsustainable trade debtors balances quarter by quarter.
Note: Strategic plans dictate that Big Red Bicycles must reduce its debt levels and so additional financing to increase cash flow is not an option.
