Average Payables Period Calculator

This calculator requires the use of Javascript enabled and capable browsers. This script is one of several termed as operational ratios. This measures the average number of days that you take to pay your vendors and suppliers. It indicates the effectiveness of your cash flow and if the your own credit terms are realistic and warranted. The number of days in the measurement period is usually a year unless you are working with a fewer number of months. Our default is 365. The opening and closing balances for AP, excluding payroll, are the averages for the measurement period; again, that is usually 12 months. To find those figures, accumulate the opening values for AP for each of the months in the measurement period and divide them by that number of months. The same is true for closing balances. The closing balance for one month should be the opening balance for the next. Enter the payables value total, excluding payroll. Finally click on Calculate to see the average payables period.
