The president of sonic sound directed the sales staff

Allowance method: analysis of receivables. At a January 20X2 meeting, the presi¬dent of Sonic Sound directed the sales staff “to move some product this year.” The president noted that the credit evaluation department was being disbanded be¬cause it had restricted the company’s growth.
