5. Affleck Inc.'s business is booming, and it needs to raise more capital. The company purchases supplies on terms of 1/10 net 20, and it currently takes the discount. One way of getting the needed funds would be to forgo the discount, and the firm's owner believes she could delay payment to 40 days without adverse effects. What would be the effective annual percentage cost of funds raised by this action? (Assume a 365-day year.)
a. 10.59% b. 11.15% c. 11.74% d. 12.36% e. 13.01%
The answer is D. Effective annual percentage: Re = (D / (a – h)) *365, where D – discount, %; a – discount period (days); b – duration of deferred payment (days). Re = (1% / (40 – 10))*365 = 12,16%.
I am writing to express my gratitude for all the help this website offered to me in times of need. I believe this website is not a "cheating" source for "lazy" students, but an important source for those of us who are burdened with more than we can bear, have little to no facilities to handle the stress and workload, and are in serious need of help given at an affordable price. Thank you so very much to all those involved with this website who have helped students like me in desperate need.
