**INSTRUCTIONS**: Choose units and enter the following:

**(**Total Receivables**TR**)**(**Total Credit Sales**TCS**)**(**Days in Period**DiP**)

**Days Sales Outstanding (DSO): **The results are returned in number of days. However, these can be automatically converted to compatible units via the pull-down menu.

Days Sales Outstanding tests the efficiency of the conversion of receivables into cash.

A result greater than a company's Terms (ie, Terms net 30, but DSO of 45) reveals that, on average, credit customers are taking 15 days beyond term to pay.

Typical days of period are 360 or 365.

The formula for Days Sales Outstanding is:

DSO = (TR)/(TCS) * DiP

where:

- DSO = Days Sales Outstanding
- TR = Total Receivables
- TCS = Total Credit Sales
- DiP = Days in Period
