Although disappointed, Chandra was not surprised. He knew that expenses were higher than sales because, throughout the year, he had been unable to generate a cash surplus. His bank overdraft had blown out and his bank manager has asked him to present his financial statements for 2015 to the bank.

Required:

You are asked to:

1. Review the performance of Bendigo Fencing Company in 2014 and make a recommendation as to whether Chandra's overdraft facility should be cancelled.

2. Prepare a report for Chandra explaining the errors he made in his income statement.

To perform this analysis you will need to recast Chandra's income statement. The following information may be useful:

• At 30 June 2015, the following inventories existed:
Raw Material $2,000
Work in Process $4,000
Finished Goods $5,150

• The factory occupies 70 per cent of the rented building, the sales area 25 per cent and the administration area 5 per cent.

• All the company's fixed assets are estimated to have a useful life for 7 years and no salvage value at the end of their life.

• Chandra spends 60 per cent of his time as factory manager and spends the remaining time equally on sales and general administration.

• Electricity costs are consumed 70% by the factory and 30% by the office.
