a. Calculate the approximate annual rate of return on investment of the following cash discount terms: 1. 1/ 15, n30. 2. 2/ 10, n60. 3. 1/ 10, n90.

b. Which of these terms, if any, is not likely to be a significant incentive to the customer to pay promptly? Explain your answer.

a)

1) 360 days / 15 day loan = 24 loan periods

= 24 ×1% discount

ROI = 24%

2) 360 days / 50 day loan = 7.2loan periods

= 7.2×2% discount

ROI = 14.4%

3) 360 days / 80 day loan = 4.5 loan periods

= 4.5×1% discount

ROI = 4.5%

b)

The least incentive for customers to pay promptly is the 1/10, net 90 term because they can earn a higher ROI elsewhere.
