Cost of Not Taking a Cash Discount
A cash discount gives a buyer a reduction in price if the payment is made within a specified
time period. For example, "2/10, NET/30" means that the buyer can deduct 2 percent if
payment is made within 10 days. If payment is not made within 10 days, the full amount must
be paid by the 30
You can use the equation shown below to calculate the cost of failing to take the cash
discount. The cost is calculated as an annual interest rate charged for delaying payment.
COST%
DISC% is the discount percent if the payment is made early. TOTAL DAYS is the total number
of days until the bill must be paid. DISC DAYS is the number of days for which the discount is
available.
Example
