    Hi John. Shouldn’t we discount the redundancy cost that will be incurred in a years time rather than subtract it from the redundancy cost if we were to discontinue the project?

      That would be fine, except that this example specifically says (the last line) to ignore the time value of money (which means to not discount).
      This first example is just a check on relevant costs.

    Thank You! A great lecture! :)
    But I have 2 questions.
    1. If we have to rent the premises specifically for this project, then do we consider it as a relevant cost?
    2. Why don’t we consider $ 40,000 Labour cost as a relevant cost. I get the point why we don’t consider it when we calculate Loss from the other products. But why don’t we take it to account for this project seperately?

      If we did rent premises specifically, then we would include them (but we don’t in this question).

      With regard to the labour, we will be paying them whether we move them to this project or whether they stay where they are – there is no extra cost involved.
