Leimersheim GmbH has adopted the following policies regarding merchandise purchases and inventory. At the end of any month, the inventory should be €15,000 plus 90% of the cost of goods to be sold during the following month. The cost of merchandise sold averages 60% of sales. Purchase terms are generally net, 30 days. A given month’s purchases are paid as follows: 20% during that month and 80% during the following month.
Purchases in May had been €150,000 and the inventory on May 31 was higher than planned at €230,000. The manager was upset because the inventory was too high. Sales are expected to be June, €300,000; July, €290,000; August, €340,000; and September, €400,000.
