This week, you′ll assume the role of Senior Accountant with SunsTruck Sunglasses. Senior accountants take ownership of reporting costs, profitability, margins, and expenditures for a given business. They use the principles of accounting to analyze sales information, create financial reports, make recommendations about the financial health of the company, and more. They are also responsible for training junior accounting staff.
For the last six months, SunsTruck has partnered with a discount retail store to run a pop-up sunglasses stand in their stores for a big summer promotion. Due to the high customer purchase rate, the store has requested stock for five additional stores. SunsTruck needs to increase its capacity to meet the additional demand. In order to do so, SunsTruck needs additional money.
