Assignment Steps
Scenario: BizCon, a consulting firm, has just completed its first year of operations. The company’s sales growth
was explosive. To encourage clients to hire its services, BizCon offered 180-day financing – meaning its largest
customers do not pay for nearly 6 months. Because BizCon is a new company, its equipment suppliers insist on
being paid cash on delivery. Also, it had to pay up front for 2 years of insurance. At the end of the year, BizCon
owed employees for one full month of salaries, but due to a cash shortfall, it promised to pay them the first week
of next year.
As the senior accountant, the Chief Financial Officer has asked you to prepare a memo to be sent to management
notifying them of the delayed wage payments.
Prepare the memo in a maximum 700 words including the following information to better outline the situation:
