Will there be any change in the average size if the terms of credit change to 2/10 net 60 with an assumption that 60% of the customers avail the discount?

    Solution

    Average size of receivables = Rs (10,00,000/360) × 72 = Rs 2,00,000

    Case II:

    Average collection period = (0.6 × 10) + 0.4 (60 + 0.2 × 60)
