B (CLO2) An evaluation of the books of Blair Supply, which gives the end-of-year accounts receivable balance, which is believed to consist of amounts originating in the months indicated. The company had annual sales of \$2.1 million. The firm extends 30-day credit terms.

Month of origin Amounts receivable

 Month of Origin Amounts Receivable \$ July 3,875 August 2,000 September 34,025 October 15,100 November 52,000 December 193,000 Year-end accounts receivable 400,000

Find the following:

a. Use the year-end total to evaluate the firm's collection system.
b. What is your comment of the company collection policy based on part a.

a) Calculation of the Tax Rate ;-

Net income = EBIT - interest expense - tax

3,100,000 = 6,000,000 - 300,000 - tax paid

Tax paid = \$ 2,600,000

Tax rate = Tax paid / EBT = 2,600,000 / (6,000,000 - 300,000) = 0.45614035

Tax rate = 45.61%

B )

a) Average collection Period = Account receivable / average sales per day

Average sales per day = 2,100,000 / 365 =\$ 5,753.4247

Average collection period = 400,000 / 5,753.4247 = 69.524 days

b) Since the average age of receivables is over 39.524 days beyond the net date,attention should be directed to accounts receivable management.
