Question LASSIC UPHOLSTERY SHOP Tyler Smith has worked in an upholstery shop for 10 years. Last year Tyler’s wages were $20000. Lately Tyler has been unhappy with the shop’s owner. Convinced that he could run an upholstery shop that did better work at a lower cost Tyler decided to go into business for himself and opened CLASSIC UPHOLSTERY SHOP. To get the business going Tyler decided to invest heavily in advertising. He spent $6000 on advertising aimed at consumers and another $2000 on advertising aimed at getting work from interior decorators and interior design stores. Tyler also purchased industrial sewing machines costing $4000 and other tools and equipment costing $3000. He estimated that the sewing machines can be used for about 5 years before maintenance costs will be too high and the machines will need to be replaced. The other tools and equipment are not as durable and will have to be replaced in 3 years. At the end of the first year of business Tyler had received $80000 in cash from customers for upholstery work. Tyler was owed another $2500 from customers who are not required to pay cash but are billed every 30 days. A review of Tyler’s checkbook shows he paid the following expenses (in addition to those mentioned previously) during the first year of business: Upholstery fabric $40000 Other supplies 10000 Wages–––part-time assistant 9500 Rent 4800 Insurance (2-year policy) 3200 Utilities 2500 Miscellaneous expenses 1700 Tyler’s utility bill for the last month of the year has not arrived. He estimated that the bill will be approximately $320. Tyler keeps some stock of upholstery fabric in popular colors on hand for customers who do not want to wait for special-order fabric to arrive. At the end of the year about $14000 of the fabric purchased during the year was in his store stock. In addition $2300 in supplies had not been used. HOW MUCH PROFIT DID TYLER MAKE IN HIS FIRST YEAR OF BUSINESS? DO YOU THINK IT WAS A GOOD IDEA TO OPEN THE UPHOLSTERY SHOP OR WOULD TYLER BE BETTER OFF WITH HIS OLD JOB?
