DSO Calculator

The DSO calculator measures your average invoicing collection process. It shows the average number of days that it’s taking for your customers to pay your invoices. It tells you the number of days it takes for your company to collect a payment from your credit sales.

Knowing your DSO figure will show you the average amount of time that it is taking your customers to pay you! 


Why calculate your DSO?

Knowing your DSO not only tells you how long it’s taking for your customers to pay you, but this figure also indicates:

  • the amount of sales your company has made during a specific time period
  • if your company’s collections department is working well
  • if your company is maintaining customer satisfaction
  • And if credit is being given to customers that are not creditworthy

You can therefore use your DSO figure as a quick benchmark to make improvements to these key areas within your business.

the formula for DSO:

Accounts receivable ÷ Total Credit Sales

× 365 (days in year)
