All sales are on credit. Dakota’s is considering loosening its credit policy such that ACP will increase to 30 days. The change is expected to increase credit sales by 5 percent.

How will this change in accounts receivable policy affect Dakota’s net income, total asset turnover, equity multiplier, ROA, and ROE?
