1. Assuming that all Apple’s sales in fiscal 2018 were on credit, what was the company’s Days Sales Outstanding in 2018? (For balance sheet accounts, use the average of the beginning and end-of-year balances).

Days Sales Outstanding

Days Sales Outstanding is calculated as follows

Days Sales Outstanding = Average Accounts Receivables / Sales per day

Average Accounts Receivables

Average Accounts Receivables = (Receivables at the beginning + Receivables at the end) / 2

= (\$35,673 + \$48,995) / 2

= \$84,668 / 2

= \$42,334

Sales per day

Sales per day = Revenue / 365 Days

= \$265,595 / 365 Days

= \$727.66 per day

Therefore, the Days Sales Outstanding = Average Accounts Receivables / Sales per day

= \$42,334 / \$727.66 per day

= 58.18 Days

“Hence, the company’s Days Sales Outstanding in 2018 would be 58.18 Days”
