# Factoring Accounts Receivable Faeber Textile Company frequently factors its accounts receivable. During 2019, Faeber made credit sales of $100,000 to customers, under terms of 2/10, n/30. Faeber records its credit sales using gross price. In 2019, Faeber sold$70,000 of these receivables to a factor. The factor remitted 90% of the accounts receivable factored and charged a 12% commission on the gross amount of the factored receivables.
