Follow the steps below to complete the assignment:
Workbook: Begin by creating a new workbook. In the workbook you will want to have 2 worksheets. Name your worksheets as follows:
- Sheet 1: Monthly Expenses
- Sheet 2: Loan Repayment Plan
Personalization of your work
- Use the chart below to enter in your estimated monthly income as a dollar value, as assigned based on your student number. This value will be placed into the first cell in the right hand column in Worksheet 1.
Hotel (Student # ending in 8, 9) | $150,000.00 |
Restaurants & Catering (Student # ending in 6, 7) | $35,000.00 |
Event Planning (Student # ending in 4, 5) | $25,000.00 |
Bakeshop & Cafes (Student # ending in 2, 3) | $15,000.00 |
Other "Choose your own" Business Types (Student # ending in 0, 1) | $20,000.00 |
- Now based on your business type, choose a creative company name and input into the title of Worksheet 1.
- Note: Beginning balance/ Loan amount for Worksheet 2 will also be personalized based on a result of your calculations.
Worksheet 1
Sheet 1: Monthly Expenses
- To begin, recreate the following cells in your Excel worksheet:
Distribution of Monthly Expenses for [Company Name] | ||
Monthly Income | 100% | INPUT AMOUNT BASED ON STUDENT # HERE $ |
Costs of Sales | 34.80% | $ |
Salaries & Wages | 31.00% | $ |
Rental & Leasing | 8.10% | $ |
Amortization & Depreciation | 2.40% | $ |
Marketing & Entertainment | 2.80% | $ |
Utilities | 2.20% | $ |
Repair & Maintenance | 1.90% | $ |
Professional & Business Fees | 1.20% | $ |
Office & Computer Related Expenses | 0.70% | $ |
Business Taxes, Licenses & Permits | 0.80% | $ |
Insurance | 0.60% | $ |
Subcontracts | 0.60% | $ |
Telephone, Internet & Other Telecommunications | 0.30% | $ |
Travel, Meeting & Conventions | 0.30% | $ |
Other Non-Production Related Costs & Expenses | 0.30% | $ |
Profit Before Taxes and Interest | Use the last 2 digits of your Student Number as percent. i.e. 59 = 5.9% | $ |
Remaining Amount for Loan Repayment | Calculate leftover percentage | $ |
*These expense percentages are realistic and borrowed from 'Restaurants Canada Research. Operations Report 2019
- Now, using formulas, calculate the following:
- Loan repayment as a percentage (%) of the monthly expenses.
- Calculate the monetary value ($) of each expense category.
- Profit % Amount will be based on your student number
- Determine the loan repayment amount as a monetary value ($).
Worksheet 2
Sheet 2: Loan Repayment
To begin this worksheet, you will need to create three different tables:
- Note that tables 1 & 2 can be either on top of each other or side by side but they must make up the first part of your worksheet.
- Table 1 containing the following cells:
Enter Values | |
Loan Amount | Use Remaining Amount from Worksheet 1 multiplied by 24 months $ |
Annual Interest Rate | Current rate from link % |
Start Date of Loan | Must be on/past submission date of assignment dd/mm/yyyy |
- Calculate the Loan Amount, results from work in Worksheet 1.
- To find the annual interest rate, go to the Bank of Canada website to find the most current interest rate. It will be listed as the prime rate under the interest rate category.
- Choose a start date for your loan repayment, must be after current date.
- Table 2 containing the following cells:
Monthly Principal Payment | link from worksheet 1 - Remaining Amount Left for Loan Payment $ |
Number of Payments | 24 |
Total Interest | Apply formula from Result of your work in Table 3 $ |
Total Cost of Loan | Apply formula from Result of your work in Table 3 $ |
- Table 2 requires more technical skill to populate.
- To populate the monthly payment amount, copy and paste the cell Remaining Amount for Loan Repayment as a link from your worksheet 1.
- For the number of payments, 24 months.Note: The number of payments is the key to how many rows you will need in table 3.
- Note: The remaining cells in Table 2 will be from the results of your work in Table 3.
- For the Total Interest, you will need to apply a formula that will calculate the sum of all the cells in the Interest column from Table 3.
- For the Total Cost of the Loan, apply a formula that adds the original loan amount and the Total Interest amount.
- Table 3 containing the following cells:Table 3 must appear below or beside table 1 & 2 in your worksheet 2.
Payment No. | Payment Date | Beginning Balance | Principal Payment | Interest | Ending Balance |
1 | dd/mm/yyyy | =Loan Amount | =remaining balance for loan repayment from Worksheet 1 | $ | =(beginning balance - principal payment) |
2 | dd/mm/yyyy | = previous ending balance | $ | $ | $ |
3 | dd/mm/yyyy | $ | $ | $ | $ |
4 | dd/mm/yyyy | $ | $ | $ | $ |
- Use a Auto-Fillfunction to help you quickly populate the first two columns (Payment No. and Payment Date). Repayments should occur once a month.
- To populate the beginning balance, you will need to copy and paste the cell Loan Amount from section 1 as a link to this cell.
- Each subsequent beginning balance will need a formula applied to it consisting of the previous ending balance.
- Principal payment amount has been calculated from Worksheet 1 and should have been linked to "Monthly Principal Payment" in Table 2. Use the fill handle function to populate the remaining cells in this column. The principal payment amount will be the same for all cells in this column.
- To calculate the monthly interest rate, apply a formula to extract the interest rate from the beginning balance in each line. (Hint: An interest rate of 6.50% p.a. will be expressed as 0.0650. To calculate per month, it will be expressed as 0.0650 /12)
- Finally, for the ending balance, apply a formula that subtracts the principal payment from the beginning balance.
- Repeat all the steps until the loan is paid off. Final row should have an ending balance of ZERO (0)
Some important notes to consider:
Do not use Excel as a calculator! Formulas must be created with cell addresses not numbers. Marks will be deducted if this is found.
There are multiple ways to achieve each calculation.
Be sure that all % cells are formatted to % cells and all $ cells are formatted to currency cells. This means that you are not typing the symbols but that you have set the function for them to appear based on the format of the cell.
All numeric cells in this worksheet should be rounded to 2 decimal points.
- Once you have applied all of your calculations and all of your cells are populated, complete Worksheets with the following:
- Ensure the title cells are merged and apply a bold font to the titles in each table
- Apply a background colour to the title cells
- Apply a borders to all cells
- Use background and shading to accentuate and differentiate the information in each column.
- Freeze pane the first row of cells Worksheet 2 - Table 3.
