Contemporary Media Sign Company sells on account

Price: $2.99

E8-24 Collection period for receivables [10–15 min]

Contemporary Media Sign Company sells on account. Recently, Contemporary
reported the following figures:

2012 2011
Netsales................... $ 572,000 $ 600,000
Receivables at end of year . . . . . 38,700 46,100

1. Compute Contemporary’s average collection period on receivables during 2012.

2. Suppose Contemporary’s normal credit terms for a sale on account are “2/10, net 30.” How well does Contemporary’s collection period compare to the company’s credit terms? Is this good or bad for Contemporary?
