Explain the statement presentation and analysis of receivables. S T U D Y O B J E C T I V E 9 Illustration 9-15 Accounts receivable turnover ratio and computation Net Credit Sales H11548 Average Net H11549 Accounts Receivable Accounts Receivable Turnover $29,462 H11004 $3,303 H11001 2 $3,989 H11005 8.1 times Illustration 9-16 Average collection period for receivables formula and computation Days in Year H11548 Accounts Receivable H11549 Average Collection Turnover Period in Days 365 days H11004 8.1 times H11005 45.1 days The result indicates an accounts receivable turnover ratio of 8.1 times per year. The higher the turnover ratio the more liquid the company’s receivables. A variant of the accounts receivable turnover ratio that makes the liquidity even more evident is its conversion into an average collection period in terms of days.This is done by dividing the turnover ratio into 365 days. For example, Cisco’s turnover of 8.1 times is divided into 365 days, as shown in Illustration 9-16, to ob- tain approximately 45.1 days.This means that it takes Cisco about 45 days to collect its accounts receivable.

ANALYSIS OF RECEIVABLES The Navigator a19 action plan a20 Review the formula to compute the accounts receivable turnover. a20 Make sure that both the beginning and ending accounts receivable balances are considered in the computation. a20 Review the formula to compute the average collection period in days. In 2010, Lebron James Company has net credit sales of $923,795 for the year. It had a beginning accounts receivable (net) balance of $38,275 and an ending accounts receivable (net) balance of $35,988. Compute Lebron James Company’s (a) ac- counts receivable turnover and (b) average collection period in days. Solution (a) Companies frequently use the average collection period to assess the effec- tiveness of a company’s credit and collection policies. The general rule is that the collection period should not greatly exceed the credit term period (that is, the time allowed for payment). Net credit sales H11004 Average net H11005 Accounts receivable accounts receivable turnover $923,795 H11004 38,275 + 35,988 H11005 24.9 times 2 (b) Days in year H11004 Accounts receivable H11005 Average collection turnover period in days 365 H11004 24.9 times H11005 14.7 days Related exercise material: BE9-12, E9-14 and DO IT! 9-4.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
