On Nov 10, 2017 Singh Electronics began to buy and resell scanners for $55 each. Singh uses the perpetual system to account for inventories. The scanners are covered under a warranty that requires the company to replace any non-working scanner within 90 days. When a scanner is returned, the company simply throws it away and mails a new one from inventory to the customer. The companys cost for a new scanner is only $35. Sing estimates warranty costs based on 18% of the number of units sold.
