What is a Receivables Turnover Ratio?

The Receivables Turnover Ratio (RTR) in the construction industry is a critical financial metric that measures the efficiency with which a construction company can collect from its clients. This ratio indicates the number of times a company's accounts receivables are collected, or "turned over," during a specific period. It is calculated by dividing the company's net credit sales by its average accounts receivable. A higher RTR implies that the company collects its receivables more frequently, indicating efficiency in its credit and collection processes. On the other hand, a lower RTR suggests that the firm needs to revisit its credit policy as its customers may be delaying payments, which could impact cash flow - a vital aspect in the construction business.
