$650,000.00 per year. Beverage costs amount to 40% and other variable costs at
this level of revenue amount to 10%. Fixed costs are $170,000pa.
You are required to show all relevant formula and calculations using a professional
layout as explained during class tutorial sessions. Use Excel and use whole
numbers. Percentages where shown should be 1 decimal place ie xx.x%.
Please read the questions and information carefully.
1.1 What is the annual net profit (before tax)? (4)
1.2 The owner wants to increase the manager’s salary by $12,000 per year.
What is the new sales revenue needed to provide this additional salary and
maintain the current level of net profit? Show the equation you used to arrive at this
(Any added sales revenue will come from increasing seat turnover by
improving/increasing the efficiency of customer service).
1.3 Instead of increasing sales revenue by increasing seat turnover and customer
service, the owner decides to increase menu prices by 5%.
The owner believes the price increase can be made without losing any customers
and without increasing the cost of sales or other variable costs. The original variable
cost dollar values and the manager’s salary increase still apply. Hint calculate the
new SR based on the original Sale Revenue.
