Question #136115
Assume that a firm is offered 2/10 net 30, indicating that if the account is settled in 10 days, the firm may keep a discount of 2%. If the discount is not taken, then the full amount is payable in 30 days.

3.1.1 Calculate the cost of foregoing the discount
3.1.2 Differentiate between the various aims of appraisal projects
Expert's answer

lets assume the full amount payable is $500

\therefore Invoice full amount: $500

Invoice date: June 1

Invoice due date: 30 days 

Payment terms: 2/10 net 30

Discount period: 10 days

Begin counting days from the day after the invoice date.  

A quick formula is 100% – discount % x invoice amount.

100% – 2% = 98% x $500 = $490.
