Being able to forecast future cash receipts and future cash disbursements is cr

Being able to forecast future cash receipts and future cash disbursements is critical in being able to determine if and when you might be facing a cash crunch or a cash surplus. Since cash is the lifeblood of a business, properly monitoring cash inflows and outflows is critical to keeping your business running smoothly and without disruption.
Imagine you are part of a growing company. You are feeling a little bit of a cash squeeze as you purchase and pay for inventory often before you are able to sell it. You can see that your cash reserves are slowly dwindling, and eventually you may need some external financing. As you consider visiting your local banker for a loan, you realize that the banker will need information relating to when and how the bank loan will be repaid.
Respond to the following in a minimum of 175 words: 
If you were the banker, what information would you want from a company to evaluate their riskiness and their ability to repay a loan?
What specific information would you need to begin a cash receipts forecast? Identify three items that would be helpful.

 Imagine that you were auditing accounts receivable balances to confirm sales and found significant discrepancies between the recorded account balances and returned confirmations from customers. Recommend an alternative approach to confirming sales revenue. Provide a rationale for your recommendation 
Respond:
 
Accounts receivable is frequently the most significant asset a company has. Hence, auditors tend to spend considerable time gaining assurance that the amount of the stated asset is reasonable. Here are a few of the accounts receivable audit procedures that can be followed: Trace receivable report to the general ledger. The auditors will ask for a period-end account receivable aging report, from which they trace the total to the amount in the accounts receivable account in the general ledger. (If these totals do not match, you may have a journal entry somewhere in the general ledger account that should not be there). Calculate the receivable report total. The auditors will add the invoices on the accounts receivable aging report to verify that the total they traced to the general ledger is correct.
The preceding list of audit procedures is designed to detect a variety of audit risks, such as: that receivables do not exist, incorrect receivable balances, and dummy accounts that reflect bad debt like sales transactions not keyed in the right period.

This discussion has 2 parts:
Understanding what the net present value (NPV) tells us.

You should be fired” How would you respond to her?

Case 11-3. Break-even analysis Aquarius Games Inc. has finished a new video game

Case 11-3. Break-even analysis
Aquarius Games Inc. has finished a new video game, Triathlon Challenge. Management is now considering its marketing strategies. The following information is available:
Two managers, Haley Chipana and Dan Gillespie, had the following discussion of ways to increase the profitability of this new offering:
Haley:I think we need to think of some way to increase our profitability. Do you have any ideas?
Dan:Well, I think the best strategy would be to become aggressive on price.
Haley:How aggressive?
Dan:If we drop the price to $60 per unit and maintain our advertising budget at $15,000,000, I think we will generate sales of 2,000,000 units.
Haley:I think that’s the wrong way to go. You’re giving too much up on price. Instead, I think we need to follow an aggressive advertising strategy.
Dan:How aggressive?
Haley:If we increase our advertising to a total of $20,000,000, we should be able to increase sales volume to 1,200,000 units without any change in price.
Dan:I don’t think that’s reasonable. We’ll never cover the increased advertising costs.
Which strategy is best: Do nothing? Follow the advice of Dan Gillespie? Or follow Haley Chipana’s strategy?
Read Case 11-3. Choose the best strategy and justify your decision based on appropriate accounting principles.

Your initial post should be 200-300 words, formatted and cited in current APA style.

*Unit 5 Discussion – First Bank and Trust (ACC315 Fraud Prevention & Examination)
John White, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Bank & Trust is a veteran of thirty five years in the financial services industry. As a young banker he has always remembered the time his bank lost an important customer because a branch manager followed procedure to the letter. The bank had a policy that a customer had to wait three days before getting cash for an out of state check they were cashing if over $100. Mary Jones, who maintained account balances of over one million dollars in deposits and several million in trust came to a branch to cash an out of state check. The branch manager would not give her the cash because of the bank’s three day policy. As a result, Mary closed all her accounts. Since then John White has always preached “you must know when to break the rules”.
Lou Brown was the senior officer in charge of commercial lending. Judy Bolton had just spent a long weekend putting together a loan deal between the bank and Acme Manufacturing. Lou was overjoyed that the deal was completed and told Judy to go out to diner with her husband and charge it to the bank as a reward for a job well done. To make it a “reimbursable” expense he told Judy to indicate she had diner with one of Acme’s officers.
Comment on these two situations. While the textbook may dictate one course of action what do you think we should do in the “real world”. 
*Unit 5 Discussion – Ethics Case 13–17 Profits guaranteed ● LO13–5 (ACC340 Intermediate Accounting II)
This was Joel Craig’s first visit to the controller’s corner office since being recruited for the senior accountant position in May. Because he’d been directed to bring with him his preliminary report on year-end adjustments, Craig presumed he’d done something wrong in preparing the report. That he had not was Craig’s first surprise. His second surprise was his boss’s request to reconsider one of the estimated expenses.
S & G Fasteners was a new company, specializing in plastic industrial fasteners. All products carry a generous long-term warranty against manufacturer’s defects. “Don’t you think 4% of sales is a little high for our warranty expense estimate?” his boss wondered. “After all, we’re new at this. We have little experience with product introductions. I just got off the phone with Blanchard (the company president). He thinks we’ll have trouble renewing our credit line with the profits we’re projecting. The pressure’s on.”
Required:
· Should Craig follow his boss’s suggestion?
· Does revising the warranty estimate pose an ethical dilemma?
· Who would be affected if the suggestion is followed?
*Week 5 Discussion – Hypothetical Business (MKT500 Marketing Management)
· Briefly remind us about your hypothetical business (the one you have created for your four assignments) and your target audience. My hypothetical company: Henry and Phillips Property Management Group
What is the message that you will consistently communicate to this target audience?
How will you creatively deliver the message? For example, will you have a celebrity spokesperson, a product demonstration, an emotional appeal, etc.
Where will you use traditional advertising (for examples see page 240 of the e-book), sales promotion (for examples see page 243 of the e-book), events and experiences, and public relations (for examples see pages 246-247 of the e-book) to promote your hypothetical business.
This is your chance to share your knowledge of each one of the four types of promotional strategies. This should be a 300 – 500-word discussion.
Remember that this is NOT the week to discuss social media.
