December, Year 6 . . . . . . . . . 80,000
January, Year 7. . . . . . . . . . . 36,000
Sales are 75% for cash and 25% on account. Receivables are collected in full in the month following the sale. For example, the accounts receivable balance of $10,000 on September 30, Year 6, equals 25% of the sales from September, of which all $10,000 is paid in October. Gross profit averages 30% of sales before purchase discounts. Therefore, the gross invoice cost of goods sold is 70% of sales. Union Corp. carries $30,000 of inventory plus additional inventory sufficient to provide for the anticipated sales of the following month. Purchase terms are 2/10, n/30. Since purchases are made early in each month and all discounts are taken, payments are consistently made in the month of purchase.
Salaries and wages average 15% of sales, rent averages 5% of sales, and all other expenses (except depreciation) average 4% of sales. These expenses are paid in cash when incurred. Depreciation expense is $750 per month, computed on a straight-line basis. Equipment expenditures are forecasted at $600 in October and $400 in November. Depreciation on these new expenditures is not recorded until Year 7. Union Corp. maintains a minimum cash balance of $8,000. Any borrowings are made at the beginning of the month and any repayments are made at the end of the month, both in multiples of $1,000 (excluding interest). Interest is paid when the principal is repaid, equal to a rate of 6% per year.

Required:
a. The senior loan officer requests you prepare the following schedules for the months of October, November, and December, and for the total three months (quarter) ending in December of Year 6:
(1) Estimated total cash receipts.
(2) Estimated cash disbursements for purchases (purchases are 70% of sales for the following month).
