Collins Office Supplies is considering a more liberal credit policy to increase
sales, but expects that 9 percent of the new accounts will be uncollectible. Collection
costs are 5 percent of new sales, production and selling costs are 78 percent,
and accounts receivable turnover is five times. Assume income taxes of
30 percent and an increase in sales of $80,000. No other asset buildup will be
required to service the new accounts.
