  1. Role Play

You are the Senior Accountant. As part of your role, you will need to complete the following tasks.

Task A

As you are aware, one risk to the strategic plans of Big Red Bicycle (BRB) is bad debt and poor cash flow due to large trade debtor balances. Consider the following:

  • According to its policies, BRB offers 30 day terms to debtors.
  • BRB does not currently train sales staff on credit terms.
  • There is currently no enforcement of credit terms.
  • Warehousing of stock is expensive at current leased premises.
  • Many bicycles need to be thrown out if parts rust; this problem exacerbates the problem of waste expense.

You have the following information from the Statement of Financial Position and current ledger accounts in the electronic accounting system (MYOB Account Right). The sales of Big Red Bicycles are $2900,000.

Trade debtors362,500
Trade creditors80,000
Opening stock100,000
Closing stock300,000


Complete the following.

  1. Review the Statement of Financial Performance and calculate:
    • The average debtor days
    • The average creditor days
