The advertising expenses do not remain same for the next 6 months. The wages and salaries do not decrease by 5% in all the months although it increases in the last three months. Online sales also decrease rather than increase.
(c) In starting two months, the cash flow is positive of the company but after that it becomes negative for the rest of period.
(d)The company has to make changes in the budget and has to change its KPI. The KPI will be reduced so it can be achieved by the company’s performance. The increase in total sales for the next 3 months will be 4% so it will be achieved with actual performance. The company has to introduce new methods for reducing the cost of the expenses. These changes will increases the cash flow for the upcoming period.

ors in the sales and the cash as it decrease every month. The company has to implement new policies and procedures and starts to give training to the employees so the wastage in the material and overhead decreases.
