accounts receivable (A/R) to sales ratio

  

Definition

Shows the relationship between unpaid sales and the total sales revenue. It is considered high if it is near to 1.0, because that means a significant amount of cash is tied up with the slow paying customers. Formula: Total accounts receivable (outstanding in an accounting period) √∑ sales revenue (in the same period).
