... Proposal A and Proposal B. Both cost the amount of $ 60,000. The discount rate is 10%. The cash flows before depreciation and tax are as follows:
Year Proposal A Proposal B
$ $
0 (60,000) (60,000)
1 18,000 19,000

...Examples Of NetPresentValue (NPV), ROI and
Payback Analysis
Introduction
Terms and Definitions
NetPresentValue - Method of calculating the expected net monetary gain or loss from a project by discounting all expected future cash inflows and outflows to the present point in time.
DiscountRate - Also known as the hurdle rate or required rate of return, is the rate that a project must achieve in order to be accepted rather than rejected.
Return on Investment – Expected income divided by the amount originally invested
Payback Analysis – The number of years needed to recover the initial cash outlay.
Formulas
NetPresentValue = (t=1..n A * (1+r)-t OR (t=1..n A/ (1+r)t
Where A = Cash flow
r = Required rate of return
t = year of cash flow
n = the nth year
Return On Investment = (Discounted Benefits – Discounted Costs) / Discounted Costs
Payback Period = Years taken to repay initial outlay .
Eg. Project Z Outlay = $ 4000...

...projects have a positive NPV. The overall capital available for new projects for the next year is $5 million. Which of the following statements about the capital budgeting process that Cynthia should employ is true?
1) Cynthia should rank the projects in increasing order of NPV and choose the highest ranked projects in order until the capital available is exhausted.
2) Cynthia should rank the projects in increasing order of internalrate of return and choose the highest ranked projects in order until the capital available is exhausted.
3) Cynthia should calculate the NPV of various combinations of projects and choose that combination that provides the highest NPV without exceeding the capital available.

d) Cost

f) Conservatism
g) Materiality
h) Consistency
i) Periodicity
Solution: FUNDAMENTAL CONCEPTS OF ACCOUNTING
Accounting is the language of business and it is used to communicate financial information. In order for that information to make sense, accounting is based on 12 fundamental concepts. These fundamental concepts then form the basis for all of the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP). By using these concepts as the foundation, readers of financial statements and other accounting information do not need to make assumptions about what the numbers mean.
For instance, the difference between reading that a truck has a value of $9000 on the balance sheet and understanding what that $9000 represents is huge. Can you turn around and sell the truck for $9000? If you had to buy the truck today, would you pay $9000? Or, perhaps the original purchase price of the truck was $9000. All of these assumptions lead to very different evaluations of the worth of that asset and how it...

...Netpresentvalue
In finance, the netpresentvalue (NPV) or netpresent worth (NPW) of a time series of cash flows, both incoming and outgoing, is defined as the sum of the presentvalues (PVs) of the individual cash flows. In case when all future cash flows are incoming (such as coupons and principal of a bond) and the only outflow of cash is the purchase price, the NPV is simply the PV of future cash flows minus the purchase price (which is its own PV). NPV is a central tool in discounted cash flow (DCF) analysis, and is a standard method for using the time value of money to appraise long-term projects. Used for capital budgeting, and widely throughout economics, finance, and accounting, it measures the excess or shortfall of cash flows, in presentvalue terms, once financing charges are met.
The NPV of a sequence of cash flows takes as input the cash flows and a discount rate or discount curve and outputting a price; the converse process in DCF analysis, taking as input a sequence of cash flows and a price and inferring as output a discount rate (the discount rate which would yield the given price as NPV) is called the yield, and is more widely used in bond trading.
Formula
Each cash inflow/outflow is discounted back to its present...
