(b) Was the department on target with its markup? If not, what factors caused a deviation?

13. A belt department had an opening inventory of $95,000 at retail, with a 55.8% markup. Purchases during November were $64,000 at cost and $142,000 at retail. Determine:

(a) The cumulative markup percentage.

Cost = Retail x (100% – MU%)

95,000 x (100 – 55.8%) = 41,990

($142,000 – 64,000) / 142,000 x 100 = 78,000 / 142,000 x 100 = 54.9%

(b) The markup percentage on the new purchases.

Total retail value = 95,000 +142,000 = 237,000

41,990 + 64,000 = 10,5990

(23,700 – 105,990) / 23,700 x 100 = 131,010 / 237,000 x 100

= 55.3%

14.

At the beginning of the next season, the merchandise on hand (opening inventory) came to $80,000 at retail, with a cumulative markup of 49% on these goods. For the coming season, what initial markup percentage does the buyer need to achieve on any new purchases?

Cost of opening inventory

A Cost = Retail x (100% – MU%)

Cost = 80,000 x (100% – 49%) = 40,800

Cost of Merchandise handled

B Cost = 360,000 x (100% – 52%) = 172,800

Cost of purchases

Cost = Cost of total Merchandise goods – Cost of inventory

Cost = 172,800 – 40,800 = 132,000

Markup of purchases done

Markup = Cost / Retail x 100

360,000 – 80,000 = 280,000

Cost = 132,000 / 280,000 x 100 = 47.14%
