TabComp Inc. is a retail distributor for MZB-33 computer hardware and related software.
TabComp prepares annual sales forecasts, of which the first six months of the coming year are
presented below:
Cash sales account for 25% of TabComp's total sales, 30% of the total sales are paid by bank
credit card, and the remaining 45% are on open account (TabComp's own charge accounts). The
cash and bank credit card sale payments are received in the month of the sale. Bank credit card
sales are subject to a 4% discount, which is deducted immediately. The cash receipts for sales on
open account are 70% in the month following the sale and 28% in the second month following
the sale; the remaining are uncollectible.
TabComp's month-end inventory requirements for computer hardware units are 30% of the next
month's sales. The units must be ordered two months in advance due to long lead times quoted by
the manufacturer.
