Additionally, company has the line of credit with their bank. Anytime their cash balance falls below zero, they borrow money in $10,000 increments at the annual interest rate of 12%. For ex, if their cash balance was -$500, they would borrow $10,000. If their cash balance was -$12,000, they will borrow $20,000. These short-term notes payable are paid off in $10,000 increments, including interest, when there is adequate cash on hand. For ex, assume they have borrowed $20,000 on their line of credit. If they had a cash balance of $11,000, they could pay off $10,000 plus interest. The cash balance should be zero or positive at all times. For purpose of interest calculations, assume a 365 day year and assume the dollars are borrowed at the end of the business day and any repayments occur at the end of the business day.
