JKL Industries requires its branch offices to transfer cash balances once per week to the central corporate account. A wire transfer costs $12 and assures the cash is available the same day. A depository transfer check (DTC) costs $1.50 and generally results in funds being available in 2 days. JKL’s cost of short-term funds averages 9%, and they use a 360-day year in all calculations. What is the minimum transfer amount that would justify the cost of a wire transfer as opposed to a DTC?
