ACC 240 Budget Project Spring 2016
You have just been hired as a new management trainee by Tasers, Inc. a wholesaler of tasers selling
only to a variety of law enforcement agencies across the U.S.
In the past, the company has done very little in the way of budgeting and at certain times the year
has experienced a cash shortage.
Because you are well trained in budgeting as a result of your having taken ACC 240 at Nichols College,
you have decided to prepare comprehensive budgets for the upcoming second quarter to show management
the benefits that can be realized from an integrated budgeting program. To this end, you have worked
with accounting and other areas of the company to gather the information presented below.
The company sell many styles of taser but they all currently sell at wholesale for

$
150 per unit. Purchases in any month
are paid 50% in the month of purchase and 50% in the following month. All sales are on account
