Q:

Ruth Landis was carefully considering the firm’s sales prospects for 2016. Her firm, located in Southern California, did slightly over $100 million in sales. She and her husband, Jim, started the women clothier’s company two decades ago and has watched it grow from five employees to over 500. Ruth was the CEO and Jim was the chief financial officer. Landis produced its own brand of dresses, sweaters, and other apparel, and also sold brands licensed by Tommy Hilfiger, Givenchy, Michael Kors, and others. Landis’ dress manufacturing plants were located in Southern California, South America, and Asia. Among the many hundreds of decisions Ruth and Jim Landis had to make was what customers were acceptable for credit extension. In the retail fashion business, virtually no customer paid cash, so the extension of credit to retailers was critical in doing business. A potential account has been brought to their attention by the credit department. On routine decisions the credit department determined what accounts were acceptable, but on more involved situations the final call rested at the top with Ruth and Jim Landis. The Potential Account The account under consideration was Monique Fashion Stores. They were asking for $1 million for credit purchases. Based on Monique’s Dun & Bradstreet rating and other industry data, there appeared to be a five percent probability of non-payment if credit were extended. The collection costs to service the account were four percent of sales and the production and selling costs were 85 percent of sales. Any profits would be taxed at a 35 percent rate. Ruth and Jim determined that accounts receivable turnover would be three times. The firm had a required return on investment of 14 percent. Question: Assume the only new investment would be in accounts receivable. Based on the turnover ratio of three times, what would the investment in accounts receivable be? Compute the return on accounts receivable based on your answers to questions one and two. Given that the firm has a required return on investment of14 percent, should Landis Apparel Co. sell to Monique Fashion Stores? If the accounts receivable turnover ratio were four times and the other percentages were the same, should Landis Apparel Co. make the sale? Now assume that $200,000 in inventory must be maintained throughout the year in addition to the accounts receivable balance you computed in question 5. Should Landis Apparel Co. make the sale?

Q:

You are the senior tax associate in a small public accounting firm. The largest client of the firm is a man named Will “Big Daddy” Varner. Big Daddy owns numerous businesses mainly through his status as the sole shareholder of a Subchapter S Corporation or the sole member a Limited Liability Company (LLC) for each particular business (e.g., a cotton farm, a tobacco farm, a timber operation, a coal strip mine, a gas station, a grocery store, a men’s and women’s clothing store, a farming and industrial machinery supply warehouse and many others). Through these business entities, he controls virtually the entire economy of a rural county in West Tennessee. Big Daddy’s longtime college friend is the most senior partner in your accounting firm and the firm’s accounts with him represent more than 90% of its income. So you know that keeping Big Daddy happy is not only essential to the firm but also essential to your future employment and to your prospects for becoming a partner in the accounting firm. Recently, Big Daddy’s son Jody, a “slip and fall” sole practitioner lawyer in Memphis, has been approached by Flem Snopes, a “slick talking “ real estate developer about having Big Daddy invest in a multi-member LLC that will own a major real estate (residential, industrial and commercial) development in an adjacent county. This development would be financed mostly through a nonrecourse bank loan. But it is in desperate need of initial startup capital and there will be some recourse debt mainly through accounts payable to suppliers and contractors. The real estate development is expected to produce an inordinate amount of tax losses early in its history. Flem is prepared to allocate virtually all of these losses to Big Daddy if he will become his major equity contributor. Jody has frequently heard Big Daddy brag about and long for the days of President Reagan when tax losses were plentiful and when sometimes you could report these huge losses without having to pay for them. Big Daddy frequently emphasizes the latter because you are aware that Big Daddy is very suspicious of any enterprise where he may be responsible for anyone else’s debt. Your senior partner has asked you to provide a tax research memorandum to the client file and a letter to Big Daddy and Jody explaining the rules for specially allocating tax losses/deductions keeping in mind Big Daddy’s aversion to paying for anyone else’s debt. In addition, Jody has mentioned seeing differing provisions dealing with special allocations to LLC members: one providing that a member must restore any deficit balance in his capital account and one not so providing but including in it the odd term “Qualified Income Offset.” Jody has also mentioned seeing the term “Minimum Gain Chargeback.” Your task is to explain the special allocation rules to Jody and Big Daddy and how these terms might apply to Big Daddy should he invest in Flem Snopes’s development. Keep in mind that Big Daddy is an old relatively unsophisticated southern gentleman and that Jody is merely a “left turn” lawyer and that your future and your firm’s prosperity may depend upon you explaining to these two unsophisticated individuals these complex matters.

Q:

Select an organization of which you are a member or a formal organization which you are not a member. The organization can be a social, religious, student or a commercial organization. Directly contact with the organization and talk with the members/employees of the organization who might provide information about the motivational problems and the issues. At the end of the project, you should be able to relate motivational concepts and theories to this real world organization. There are some parts to the projects: a. A general description of the organization (e.g., name, type of business, size, location, etc.): Write a one page description of the organization you selected. This description should include: What the organization does (e.g. type, sector, mission, etc.) How many members/employees are there in this organization (e.g. size of the organization, Global vs local) What your role is in this organization if you are a member. b. Interview Guide : Craft an interview guide that you will use to interview three to four members of the organization. These questions should focus on how these people view the organization and their motivational issues under consideration. It is good to clarify what each person's role is. You must have at least 5, but not more than 10 questions. You need to submit a copy of your interview questions in the appendix part of your project report. c. A summary of the motivation problem(s) that this organization is/was experiencing: What is the main motivational issue of concern? Pick several issues that you can clearly describe (Examples: Is the reward system congruent with work expectations? Is there a negative motivational system in place? How do you get volunteers to share the burden in an organization? Do the employees perceive inequity with respect to distribution of rewards or experience justice?) Pick an issue that you can clearly describe. Ideally, at the end of the project, you should be able to identify antecedents and consequences surrounding behavior related to this issue. d. Discussion : Use all the information you have collected and write a case analysis of the organization's motivational problem/s. In this analysis, you should i) Describe the motivational issue, ii) Give examples of how the issue plays out in the organization (from your experiences and/or from the interviews that you have conducted, iii) Relate these characteristics to relevant course material and your references, iv) Add a discussion of recommendations to handle the motivation problems. Discuss how you would fix the problem or motivate organizational members. These should be based on specific motivation theories.
