YUSHI Why B does not extend cash cycle?
antihead well it does. Increasing credit terms means that you are going to get less money paid within a certain time period., as comapared to before That means the balance of your receiveables will be higher as credit terms are longer and less cash is being received. As receiveables are added in the cash cycle equation, it eventually incrreases/Extends the cash cycle.
soukhov increasing AR turnower rate means decrease receivibles in formula sales/receivibles
dipu617 So? The higher the AR turnover, the better???
hon132 Higher turnover means less days in AR (getting cash back faster) so lower conversion cycle. B extend time people have to pay so they wait on payment, extending the cycle.
