  1. The annual turnover of M/s. Welcome Ltd is Rs.6,00,000,  of which  80%  is  credit.

Customers are allowed one month to clear off their dues.  M/s. Royal Factors Ltd.  is

willing to advance  90% of the  bills raised on credit for a fee of  2%  a month  plus a

commission  of  4%  of the total amount of debts. As a result of  this arrangement, the

company is likely to save Rs.2160 annually in management costs and avoid bad debt

at  1%  on credit sales. A  Pune-based  NBFC  which offers  corporate loans has come

forward  to  make  an  advance  equal  to  90%  of the debts at an interest of  18%  p.a.

However, its service charges will be at  3%  on the debts. Would you accept factoring

or the offer of the NBFC ? Comment.
