The disbursement float is the average monthly checks written times the average number of days for the checks to clear, so: Disbursement float = 4($14,000) Disbursement float = $56,000 The collection float is the average monthly checks received times the average number of days for the checks to clear, so: Collection float = 2(–$26,000) Collection float = –$52,000 The net float is the disbursement float plus the collection float, so: Net float = $56,000 – 52,000 Net float = $4,000 b. The new collection float will be: Collection float = 1(–$26,000) Collection float = –$26,000 And the new net float will be: Net float = $56,000 – 26,000 Net float = $30,000 3. (LO1) a.
