This could be the result of reducing the average collection period by 1 week’s time. Example: ($30,000,000 x 53/365) = $4,356,164 a reduction of $575,342 in resources tied up in the CCC. Management could also reduce the CCC by increasing the average payment period by 5 days, allowing more cash to remain with the company. Example: ($30,000,000)x(35/365) = $2,876,712 a reduction of $129,041 tied up in the CCC. P13–7 Accounts receivable changes without bad debts
