The Tightening Credit Terms Kim Mitchell, the new credit manager of the Vinson Corporation, was alarmed to find that Vinson sells on credit terms of net 90 days while industry-wide credit terms have recently been lowered to net 30 days. On annual credit sales of $2.56 million, Vinson currently averages 95 days of sales in accounts receivable. Mitchell estimates that tightening the credit terms to 30 days would reduce annual sales to $2,435,000, but accounts receivable would drop to 35 days of sales and the savings on investment in them should more than overcome any loss in profit. Vinson’s variable cost ratio is 82%, taxes are 40%, and the interest rate on funds invested in receivables is 19%. Assuming a 365-day year, calculate the cost of carrying receivables under the current policy and the new policy. Enter your answers as positive values. Do not round intermediate calculations.
