Hupaya Incorporated Taxation Investment Analysis

Description


FIRST ASSIGNMENT


Overview:

For this prewriting assignment, students will conduct the early research, organizing, and writing steps necessary to produce a high-quality report.

Students will:

  • Produce a template for their final document layout, format, and structure
  • Develop a structure for presenting case content
  • Initiate Content
  • Conduct research and develop a reference list


Step 1: Produce a template/shell for your final report




Report Template/Shell Exemplar.pdf




For this part of the assignment, you will develop the layout, and format of your document (a template, or “shell”). You will develop a shell into which you can add the text of your document easily. Online tutorials, guides, and videos are widely available to help you quickly and easily complete the layout.



A note on resources:


Google searches for various elements of the layout will result in a mix of resources that range from easy to follow and understand, to unnecessarily complicated and difficult to follow, so check out a few different resources before you start on each layout component. For example, I looked at 3 other useful but somewhat complicated tutorials before I looked at

Linkedin’s “The Wicked Easy Way to Create a Table of Contents in Word”

(Links to an external site.)

and determined that their explanation was indeed wicked easy to follow and perfectly suitable for my needs for this assignment.


  • Determine fonts and font sizes to use

    . A standard for font and size for the body text of many business documents is Times New Roman 12 point font, but you may use any clean, easy to read serif font, 10-12 points in size. Titles may use the same font or a clean sans-serif font (Arial and Helvetica are often used). Title hierarchy should be visually emphasized. This means that section titles should grab your eye more than sub-titles. You may choose to use centering (more visually strong), One may increase in font size 1-2 points, or use a bold, italicized, or underlined font to do this. One example of

    title levels is used by APA

    (Links to an external site.)

    which must be used with the indented paragraph option below.

    • Select a paragraph style for the document. You may select one of two options

      • Indent the first line of paragraphs, and have no additional space between paragraphs.
      • The first line of a paragraph is not indented and there is a 12 point space between paragraphs.
  • Always justify body text to the left.
  • Sections and

    page numbers

    . Include page numbers on the required pages in the bottom right margin.

    You will need to know how to set section breaks, disconnect section headers and footers and set up custom page numbers. If you don’t know how to do these things, look for tutorials online.

    • Cover – no page numbers
    • Table of Contents – roman numerals (i, ii, iii…).
    • Body, Reference List, Appendix/Appendices – natural numbers (1, 2, 3…)

  • Headers and Footers

    . Put the title of your document in the Header, justified to the left. Put your name followed by Consulting, justified to the left in the footer and justified to the right the page number.

  • Table of Contents

    .

    You can use Styles in Word to set up the Table of Contents and the section titles, and subtitles in a way that will automate the page numbers listed in the Table of Contents.

    The table of contents should include Titles and subtitles used in your document with a page number for each justified to the right. Include the

    List of Tables

    and

    List of


    Figures

    after the Table of Contents, each as their own page as needed to list all tables and figures and their pages in the document.
  • The

    Executive Summary

    is the page following the table of contents.
  • Next, include the

    Introduction

    . You will include subsections for your background information and objective in this section.
  • Your

    Analysis

    comes next. You will develop a logical structure for this, and outline it using subtitles in your report shell.
  • After the analysis, you will include a section for your

    Recommendation and Conclusion
  • Starting on a new page, include your

    Reference List

    after the recommendation and conclusion.
  • Finally, include your

    Appendices


Step 2: Develop a structure for your analysis

You will develop a logical structure for presenting the information you need to make your case. You will build this structure into your report shell by including sub-titles. Titles and subtitles may all be changed or added to as necessary for the final report, but you are already able to build specific content sections into your report shell. There are a few things that you know already that you will definitely need to include as part of your analysis, and you are expected to determine and build an organizational structure for how you plan to present these aspects of your analysis into your report shell.


Step 3: Initiate Content

  • Develop a

    report cover

    . The minimum elements required for the report cover are a report title, who the report is prepared for, who the report is prepared by, and the date the report is delivered. Optionally, report covers may have some graphic blocks or lines to create an interesting layout. You may also choose to add an image that is relevant to the topic of the report. All cover blocks, lines, or graphics should be used in a way that does not overwhelm the text, and graphics should be clearly related to the report. The cover is its own page, and does not have a number.
  • Develop a

    table of contents

    including a list of tables and a list of figures. All titles and subtitles for every section after your table of contents must be included. Using the correct Word functions, you can generate a table of contents that automatically imports all of your section Headers (Header 1, Header 2, Header 3, etc.). If you use these functions, you will be able to easily update your table of contents as you fill in your report shell later on by using the “Update field” command. It is absolutely worth taking a few minutes to employ the correct Word functions at this point, as it will save you time and energy at the end of the assignment, which is usually the most stressful time.


Step 4: Conduct Research and Develop a Reference List

Case

Your client, Hupaya Incorporated, is going to build a new manufacturing facility. The budget for completing the facility and purchasing and installing the machinery is estimated to be $2.5 million. It will have a net annual income cash flow of $750,000 for the next 10 years. Initially, they were planning to locate the facility near their US headquarters location where their total incremental tax rate would be 30%. However, they have been approached by the Irish government and want to evaluate the option of building the facility in Ireland against their original plan of building in the US.

Your consulting firm, [Your name] Consulting, has been hired to complete this evaluation and present a report with an analysis of the options that supports a recommendation you will make on where to locate the plant. The approach they have requested you to take is to calculate the after-tax present worth of adding the new manufacturing facility in each of the two countries (Ireland and the United States) and determine where it would be better to place the investment. You will need to research tax methods and depreciation rules in Ireland, and compare what you find with those of the US. Use these results to recommend where to make the investment.

Write a report to present and justify your decision. Discuss the effects of the financial issues in the decision process.

Executive Summary
Assignment Description: Executive Summary
This part of the document briefly summarizes the problem, context, input information,
sources of data, and your recommendation. This section is written for a leadership audience
who may only need and have time to get the most important ideas from your document.
• This section begins on its own page, and no part of the executive summary should
overlap with any other section of the report.
o For example, if your executive summary is 1.5 pages long, beginning on page 1
and ending on page 2 of your report, you must not begin the next section on
the same page that the executive summary ends. Instead, insert a page break
and begin your next section on the next page, page 3 in this example.
• The length of the executive summary will vary depending on the length of the report.
Typically, the executive summary is 5-10% the length of the report it summarizes.
However, if the report is short the executive summary maybe a little longer then
10%. Your executive summary is unlikely to require more than 2 pages.
• The first page of the executive summary is page number 1 of your report.

Introduction
Background Information (title may vary)
Objective (title may vary)
Assignment Description: Introduction
This section should be a brief statement of what this document will address, and how the
document will organizationally address those issues (e.g., what are the elements of the
document and what will each tell your reader).
Background information – What information have you been given about the case
you are evaluating. What does this information tell you and what questions does it
bring up.
Objective – This should be a clear, concise explanation regarding what the company
needs to accomplish as an end result of making this decision.
Analysis (Presentation of Options, organized by issue OR country)
Assignment Description: Analysis (Presentation of the options – Issue organization OR

In this section, you will present the options that your company has to choose from. You will
present the issue facts as based on your research, and must cover issues including but not
limited to: Depreciation approach; tax rate; currency issues; date or calculation – net
present worth; additional information necessary for rationale.
Organizationally, you must determine the best way to present this information. Two
common ways to present the information are to: organize by issue, wherein each issue
constitutes a heading, and each country is nested as a heading under that; organize by
country, wherein each country constitutes a heading, and each issue is nested as a heading
under that.
Example organized by issue:

GEA2—Relate Economic Analysis to Human and Cultural
Diversity
Your company wants to build a new manufacturing facility which will cost $2 million for
plant building and $800,000 for machinery. It will have a net annual cash flow of
$750,000 for the next 10 years.
You could build it in your US location where your total incremental tax rate would be
45%. However you are also considering building it in Ireland.
Calculate the after tax present worth of adding a new manufacturing facility in each of
the two countries and determine where it would be better to place the investment.
Assume that the interest rate is 8% per year. You will need to research tax methods and
depreciation rules in Ireland, and compare with those of the US. Use these results to
recommend where to make the investment.
Write a report in MS Word file format to present and justify your decision. Discuss the
effects of the financial issues in the decision process. Present your analysis as an
appendix to your report.
Your work will be evaluated for the accuracy of the numerical analysis (10 pts) and the
depth and relevance of the various other issues that you have considered in the
decision process (10 pts), and finally the quality of writing (6 pts).
