Impro Company operates in a state where corporate taxes and workers’ compensation insurance raes have recently doubled. Impro’s president has just assigned you thetask of preparing an economic analysis and making a recommendation relative to moving the entire operation to Missouri. The president is slightly in favor of such amove because Missouri is his boyhood home and he also owns a fishing lodge there.You have just completed building your dream house, moved in, and sodded the lawn. Your children are all doing well in school and sports and along with your spouse,want no part of a move to Missouri. If the company does move, so will you because the town is a one-industry community and you and your spouse will have to move tohave employment. Moving when everyone else does will cause you take a big loss on the sale of your house. The same hardships will be suffered by your coworkers, andthe town will be devastated.In compiling the costs of moving versus not moving, you have latitude in the assumptions you make, the estimates you compute, and the discount rates and time periodsyou project. You are in a position to influence the decision single handedly.Instructions(a) Who are the stakeholders in this situation?(b) What are the ethical issues in this situation?(c) What would you do in this situation?

Parsons Plumbing &Heating manufactures thermostats that it uses in several of its products. Management is considering whether to continuemanufacturing the thermostats or to buy them from an outside source. The following information is available:1.The company needs 80,000 thermostats per year. Thermostats can be purchased from an outside supplier at a cost of $6 per unit.2.The cost of manufacturing thermostats is $7.50 per unit, computed as follows:Direct materials$156,000Direct labor132,000Manufacturing overhead:Variable168,000Fixed144,000Total manufacturing costs$600,000Cost per unit ($600,000 ÷ 80,000 units)$7.503.Discontinuing the manufacture of the thermostats will eliminate all of the direct materials and direct labor costs but will eliminate only 60percent of the variable overhead costs.4.If the thermostats are purchased from an outside source, certain machinery used in the production process would no longer have to be leased.Accordingly, $9,200 of fixed overhead costs could be avoided. No other reductions will result from discontinuing production of the thermostats.a.Prepare a schedule to determine the incremental cost or benefit of buying thermostats from the outside supplier. On the basis of this schedule,would you recommend that the company manufacture thermostats or buy them from the outside source?(Amounts to be deducted should be indicated witha minus sign.Omit the "$"sign in your response.)Make theThermostatsBuy theThermostatsIncrementalAnalysisManufacturing costs for 80,000 thermostats:(Click to select)Direct laborDirect materialsAccounts payableRent payableNotes payable$$(Click to select)Direct materialNotes payableSalesDepreciation expenseDirect laborManufacturing overhead:(Click to select)CashAccounts receivableVariableDepreciation expenseSales$(Click to select)Accounts receivableSalesCashDepreciation expenseFixed(Click to select)Common stockCost to salesRent payableCost to purchaseInterest expenseTotals$$$b.Assume that if thermostats are purchased from the outside source, the factory space previously used to produce thermostats can be used tomanufacture an additional 6,000 heat-flow regulators per year.

Which system do you think isbetter? Which one would you recommend for the type of inventory that I want to sell?”3. “How often do I need to count inventory if I maintain it using the perpetual system?Do I need to count inventory at all?” In the end, Natalie decides to use the perpetual method of accounting for inventory, and the following transactions happen duringthe month of January.Jan. 4 She buys five deluxe mixers on account from Kzinski Supply Co. for$2,875, terms n/30.6 She pays $100 freight on the January 4 purchase.7 Natalie returns one of the mixers to Kzinski because it was damaged duringshipping.

One month’s worth of amortization (write-off) needs to be recorded on the website.(Recall that the website has a useful life of 2 years or 24 months.)5. An additional month’s worth of interest on her grandmother’s loan needs to be accrued.(The interest rate is 9%.)6. One month’s worth of insurance has expired.7.
