Accounts Manager Position

A proposal has been made at Diversico Management & Consulting Inc. to employ a person for the new position of Accounts Manager. The annual salary cost for the Accounts Manager position is projected to be $58,000.

If these last two questions cannot be answered satisfactorily, the capacity of the Company to fund the additional salary cost through the manipulation to current assets will be irrelevant.
