Pre-Tax Net Income: Year Plan vs. Actual and Journal Entry

Pre-Tax Net Income: Year Plan vs. Actual and Journal Entry

Week 4 Discussions and Required Resources – this is a two-part assignment

Assignment must be at least 200 words unless otherwise noted. Please read all attachments and follow ALL instructions.

To receive full credit you must include at least 2 citations of scholarly support to your answers for each discussion post (i.e. Discussion One – 2 citations, Discussion Two – 2 citations).  Citations should be within your post and include (Author, year, page number) if you are using a quote, page number is not required if you are paraphrasing.  Just listing references and not using them in your post does not count as a citation or support.  You can use your textbook as scholarly support and remember to include a reference for the support cited.  

In your responses to the discussion questions, journals, assignments and the final paper please avoid contractions. Examples of contractions – I’m, I’ve, isn’t, hadn’t and all the rest. Also, avoid etc since we do not know what it is. Avoid starting a sentence with “And.” The usage of the above mentioned would result in a lower grade.

The simulation learning experience will consist of the following: You will be managing and leading a business, called HISCO (in the Medical Equipment Industry), for an entire year (four quarters) and will have to deal with numerous issues in balancing short- and long-term priorities. The terms Qtr. 1 and Q1 are used interchangeably throughout and refer to Quarter 1 of your business. You will have a wide variety of resources at your disposal (Help Desk, faculty, review videos, and data). There will be a pre-test to ensure that you are prepared for the year, Quarterly and Annual Operating/Business Reviews, and finally, the development of an annual report after you have lived the excitement of creating the results through your decisions each quarter. Playing a quarter competitively and analyzing results of your decisions will be the primary source of formal knowledge. Naturally, you will be expected to keep up with the weekly activities which build upon each other.

There is a need to present peer review Journal articles for the discussion questions, assignments and final paper.

NOTE FROM INSTRUCTOR: Pay special attention to the contractions and you must have peer review articles for the initial discussion question and your responses to your peers. Pay attention to when the discussion closes.

Also, be sure to itemized and respond to each question separately. For instance the questions for Week 4 are:

Hisco’s owner, Stan Sloane, would like to know what you have learned so far in the process of running the company that might benefit other employees/students concerning pre-tax income and its importance.

Meet with two other employees/students and share ideas that could help others in a similar employment position as you.
