Gauhar Bidani is a budding entrepreneur. He has done well in his trading business and is now planning to go into manufacturing. As his trading business was in geysers, cooking ovens and similar consumer durables, he decides to go in for manufacturing washing machines which also falls under consumer durables.

Gauhar Bidani is a know all and when somebody asked him whether he was confident of manufacturing washing machines, he laughed and said ‘What is there in it, just a container with a stirrer and a motor, and input and output water pipes. You know I always had a mechanical bent as a child and now I will finally use my skills to design and produce a washing machine. It is simple’.

His father asked him how much land would be required. ‘Not much Daddy, after all it is simple fabrication. Our shed in Sahibabad should be good enough’.

‘But that is only 3000 sq ft’, queried Daddy.

‘Yes, but that is good enough. After all what is the size of a washing machine-3ft X 2ft X 2ft. 500 machines can come in that area while I am planning only 200 machines per day’.

Bidani’s uncle, who was to be one of the investors, was full of doubts.

‘Bidani, have you examined the technical aspects in detail. All washing machines are not doing well in the market you know. Sometimes the clothes are not clean, sometimes not dried and some machines have lot of breakdown problems’.

‘Yes uncle, don’t worry, your investment is safe. My washing machine will sell in the market’.

‘Bidani, which washing machine are you planning-manual, semi automatic or fully automatic. Will it have a dryer. What sizes of capacity will you offer? What colour choices?

‘Oh, come on uncle. You are doubting me now. I will make fully automatic machines in one colour only with a microprocessor chip inside. Just wait and see my results. Be patient’.

After 12 months Bidani came up with a fully automatic machine in black colour. To his uncle the...

...TimeValue of Money
The timevalue of money (TVM) or, discounted present value, is one of the basic concepts of finance and was developed by Leonardo Fibonacci in 1202. The timevalue of money (TVM) is based on the premise that one will prefer to receive a certain amount of money today than the same amount in the future, all else equal. As a result, when one deposits money in a bank account, one demands (and earns) interest. Money received today is more valuable than money received in the future by the amount of interest we can earn with the money. If $90 today will accumulate to $100 a year from now, then the present value of $100 to be received one year from now is $90.
To fully understand timevalue of money one must first understand a few terms. Present value and future value are totally different. They also have their disadvantages and advantages; it just depends on how they are used. Of course, present value is what you have right now at this present time. While future value is the amount of money you will have at a given time in the future. Future value has a tendency to be deep;...

...TimeValue of Money
“Money has a timevalue associated with it and therefore a dollar received today is worth more than a dollar to be received in the future” (Block, Hirt, 2005). The timevalue of money may be based on the concept that one would prefer to receive a fixed payment today rather than the same fixed payment at a future date. This paper discusses some of the key components of timevalue of money and identifies the application of timevalue of money in various businesses.
Commercial banks use various timevalue of money formulas daily. One example of the application of timevalue of money in commercial banks is through mortgages. Using the formula for present value of an annuity, a bank will solve the formula to determine the monthly payment amount, the borrower’s monthly mortgage payment.
Credit card financial service companies are commonly known to issue private student loans. Therefore, credit card companies would use the timevalue of money to determine loan payment schedules and the number that students most fear, the ending balance, the future value of the loan. Credit card companies would...

Well not to spoil the surprise but the years it would take to make one rich by those means are far off and nothing in between. This is where TimeValue of Money comes in. TimeValue of Money is the idea that a dollar today is worth more than a dollar in the future, even after the adjustments of inflation, interest rates, and appreciation until the time come for the dollar in the future to be received. Simply stated invest. There are a variety of financial applications of the timevalue of money.

...TimeValue of Money
The timevalue of money relates to many activities and decision in the financial world. “Understanding the effective rate on a business loan, the mortgage payment in a real estate transaction, or the true return on an investment depends on understanding the timevalue of money” (Block, Hirt, 2005). The concept of timevalue of money helps determine how financial assets are valued and how investors establish the rates of return they demand. Many different types of companies use the timevalue of money, such as commercial banks, credit card companies, insurance companies, retirement advisors, and the state government. As an individual or company, the importance of understanding how each of these company’s services can affect ones overall cash position is very important.
When determining the “future value, we measure the value of an amount that is allowed to grow at a given interest rate over a period of time” (Block, Hirt, 2005). When determining the present value one would reverse the method for calculating future value. Future value and present value calculations may also deal with annuities rather than single amounts, “which may...

...TIMEVALUE OF MONEYTimevalue of money is useful in making informed business decisions. For example the "net present value method" can be used to help decide the best alternative among multiple alternative uses of a firm or personal financial resources. By discounting various alternatives to their "present value" one can compare the alternatives. Timevalue of money can also answer such questions as what one's investment will be worth at a certain point of time in the future, assuming a certain interest rate. Timevalue of money can also be used to compute such useful information as car, mortgage and other loan payments. Another use of timevalue of money in accounting is reporting of certain long-term assets and liabilities.
Timevalue of money is based on the principle of compound interest. Each time there is a compounding period the new principal is increased by the interest from the previous period.
Converting Before Using the Tables
When using the tables, you may need to convert if, for example, in a lump sum situation there are more than one compounding periods in a year. Or you may need to convert (to monthly compounding) if, for...

Introduction
What is the timevalue of money? (Campbell Harvey, 2012) “Timevalue of money is initially defined as the concept that money available at the present time is worth more than the same amount in the future due to its potential earning capacity. In other words, the idea that a dollar today is worth more than a dollar in the future, because the dollar received today can earn interest up until the time the future dollar is received”. In this paper we will discover what it means when people refer to time being money by learning to calculate the value of the present dollar as well as the value of the future dollar. Later, with examples, we will continue to find out exactly why interest is the foundation of timevalue of money.
