Below is the question from Kaplan exam kit.
436) In an attempt to increase sales revenue during the year, C Co offered extended credit terms to its major customers. Whilst many major customers took advantage of the extended credit period, C Co did not increase its volume of sales.
What impact did this have upon the current ratio?
A There was no change to the current ratio
B It is not possible to determine the impact on the current ratio as there is insufficient
C The current ratio increased
D The current ratio decreased
The answer given is C and the explanation given is
“If credit customers take advantage of extended credit periods, this will increase trade
receivables. If all other factors remain unchanged, there will be an increase in current assets
and, consequently, in the current ratio.
But i think the answer is A since question mentioned “did not increase its volume of sales”, hence the trade receivables should remain the same and hence the current asset remainsMay 15, 2022 at 2:54 pm #655698mrjonbainModerator
