Monette Health Center provides a variety of medical services. The company is preparing its cash budget for the upcoming third quarter. The following transactions are expected to occur:
a. Cash collections from services in July, August, and September are projected to be $ 96,000, $ 159,000, and $ 122,000, respectively.
b. Cash payments for the upcoming third quarter are projected to be $ 149,000 in July, $ 105,000 in August, and $ 133,000 in September.
c. The cash balance as of the first day of the third quarter is projected to be $ 32,000.
d. The health center has a policy that it must maintain a minimum cash balance of $ 25,000. The health center has a line of credit with the local bank that allows it to borrow funds in months that it would not otherwise have its minimum balance. If the company has more than its minimum balance at the end of any given month, it uses the excess funds to pay off any outstanding line of credit balance. Each month, Monette Health Center pays interest on the prior month’s line of credit ending balance. The actual interest rate that the health center will pay floats since it is tied to the prime rate. However, the interest rate paid during the budget period is expected to be 2% of the prior month’s line of credit ending balance ( if the company did not have an outstand-ing balance at the end of the prior month, then the health center does not have to pay any interest). All line of credit borrowings are taken or paid off on the first day of the month. As of the first day of the third quarter, Monette Health Center did not have a balance on its line of credit.
