. A firm currently sells $500,000 annually with 3% bad debt losses. Two alternative policies are available. Policy A would increase sales by $300,000, but bad debt losses on additional sales would be 8%. Policy B would increase sales by an additional $120,000 over Policy A and bad debt losses on the additional $120,000 of sales would be 15%. The average collection period will remain at 60 days (6 turns per year) no matter the policy decision made. The profit margin will be 20% of sales and no other expenses will increase. Assume an opportunity cost of 20%
Change to policy B which means you also take policy A first.
