# Seeking help on accounting question

Hi
Folks,

See
attached. This is an exercise in constructing a P&L from info provided. It
involves determining various line-items based on A/R DSO, Inventory MOH, A/P
Days, etc. info.

NOTE:
The NIBT amount (Net Income Before Tax) can be determined by dividing NIAT by
(1-tax rate % as a decimal). For example, if NIAT is \$250,000 and the tax rate
is 38%, the NIBT would be:

NIBT =
NIAT/(1 – 0.38) = \$250,000/0.62 = \$403,226.

The
Expenses can be calculated as the difference between GP & NIBT.

Try
this & let me know if you have any questions.
