Matthew Gabon, the sales manager of Office Furniture Solutions, prepared the following budget for 2011:
Sales Department
Budgeted Costs, 2011
(Assuming Sales of $10,000,000)
Salaries (fixed).......... $400,000
Commissions (variable) ........ 150,000
Advertising (fixed) ......... 75,000
Charge for office space (fixed) ..... 3,000
Office supplies & forms (variable) .. 2,000
Total................ $630,000

After he submitted his budget the president of Office Furniture Solutions reviewed it and recommended that advertising be increased to $100,000. Further, she wanted Matthew to assume a sales level of $11,000,000. This level of sales is to be achieved without adding to the sales force.
Matthew’s sales group occupies approximately 250 square feet of office space out of total administrative office space of 20,000 square feet. The $3,000 space charge in Matthew’s budget is his share (allocated based on relative square feet) of the company’s total cost of rent utilities, and janitorial costs for the administrative office building.

Prepare a revised budget consistent with the president’s recommendation.
