An investment will generate cash flows of $5,400 each year in years 3 to 10 (ie first amount to be received three years from now).The discount rate is 20% per annum.
What is the present value of the cash flows?
The answer is $14,386 How to calculate this value? Can someone help!July 23, 2012 at 6:17 pm #102079
In this question you need the annuity table because it is said that cash flow will be generated 5400 each year.
discounting rate is 20%
1-10years its 4.192
1-2years its 1.528 as we are told that first amount to be received is in 3year time so we should take the amount of the 2nd year
3-10years is 2.664 = (4.192-1.528)
5400×2.664 = $14385.6July 23, 2012 at 9:12 pm #102080
Don’t have words to thank you for responding this question:-) Full of joy my face! Wow! Annuaty table to collect the values did not see this feature at all! but as you mentioned cash flow generated each Year! bingoxxx I can sleep now and keep practising. I’m presenting the exam this Wednesday 25th CBE let’s see how it goes.
Have you presented the exam already? If you did I’m sure you have passed 100 marks! So clever need your brain he,he,he,he!!!!!!
Thanks so much!!! Good night!!!
PS: Doing more exercises stillJuly 24, 2012 at 1:19 pm #102081
By your questions i am also getting to learn. All the best for 25th. Me too haven’t done the exam yet, m doing CBE on Friday 27th. hehehe thanks will take that as a compliment
your welcomeJuly 24, 2012 at 2:30 pm #102082
Glad you also learning with my questions They are mainly from BPP Material Books Study.
My last day revising the topics! My strong subjects are Variance Analysis, Accounting for Overheads and Marginal & Absorption Costing. Not too clever with Cash Flows, discounting payback & Annuity calculations:-(
Could you be so kind and help me with this question:
An investment will generate a net cash inflaw of $20,000 at the end of its first year. This will rise to $25,000 at the end of the second year and remain at $25,000 per annum in perpetuity. The relevant discount rate is expected to be 8% in the first year and 10% in second and subsequent years.
What is the present value of the cash inflaws?
Hammering my head at the moment!July 24, 2012 at 5:12 pm #102083
this question is spinning my head too!!
sorry don’t know either. but what is the answer?? may by that we can know what to do.July 24, 2012 at 7:32 pm #102084
This one is definitely a hard one the asnwers is : $250,000 it has perpuity & annuity steps to do.
Maybe for the first year 20,000 x ?
2nd Year $25,000 x (0.010)=250
I will let you know tomorrow if I pass, going to Liverpool St BPP Centre in the afternoon plus will let you know some of the questions as well
I’m nervous already!!!!!!!!!!!!!July 26, 2012 at 7:25 am #102085

The college made a mistake with my exam venue listing me for Liverpool City instead of Liverpool Street here in London. Drama!!! I was fuming . So no exam they change the booking to the 1st of August instead. Another few extra days to keep practising.
Good luck!!! Zeba let me know!!!! Fingers cross for you I’m sure you pass very clever girl!!!
