If you give this opportunity to your client to make payment after every 20 days, than it will occur 18 times in a year. (365-20=18). In this buyer, will save upto $360 ($20x18=360)
  9. 9. Look it form another way. If the owner needs to borrow $980 from bank @6% per year, Interest, for 20 days will be $3.22. By paying $3.22 of interest to the bank, If this occurs 18 times in a year, the net annual savings will be approximately $301 [$16.78 X 18 times; or $360 per year saved minus the annual interest paid to the bank of $59 ($980 X 6%)]. A discount of 1% for paying 20 days early equates to an annual interest rate of approximately 18%.
