Conversely, factors in the report that could negatively affect one’s credit score include late payments, high balances relative to limits, and large amounts of overdue debt. Lenders may question if they will provide funding for future loans based on late payments. A high balance relative to the limits indicates overspending, which could result in higher rates of interest if financing is approved. Large amounts of past due debt can also prevent lenders from approving your loan as they will assume that you are unable or unwilling to repay the borrowed money in a timely fashion. The number of knee-replacements that need to be done each month for the wing’s costs to be covered and no losses to occur. BEP can be calculated by the following formula: Fixed costs/Unit Contribution Margins = BEP. For example, if the wing’s fixed costs are $10,000 and their unit contribution margin is $500 then 10,000/500 = 20 units. For them to be able to make a profit, they need to do at least twenty knee replacements per month.
Note that the calculation doesn’t take profit into consideration, it just tells you how many procedures are needed to stay afloat. It is therefore likely that the production level will need to be increased in order to cover monthly expenses and still make a profit.
