Answer:
$50,000
Explanation:
Calculation to determine the amount of the loss on sale of receivables that CarsRUs would recognize at the sale of its receivables
Using this formula
Loss on sale of receivables=[(Recourse Accounts receivable*Finance fee charges)+Estimated recourse liability]
Let plug in the formula
Loss on sale of receivables=(3%*$800,000)+$26,000
Loss on sale of receivables=$24,000+$26,000
Loss on sale of receivables=$50,000
Therefore the amount of the loss on sale of receivables that CarsRUs would recognize at the sale of its receivables will be $50,000
