I’m doing a re-sit this June, and I had a sections C question in my March exam which I’m still confused by – please help!
In the question is gave me inflation separately, and then a general rate of inflation.
It then went on to ask for the real NPV and the nominal NPV. It gave me the real COC and the nominal COC.
Am I right in thinking that for the nominal NPV, I inflate items separately, ignoring the general rate of inflation, and for the real NPV I inflate at the general rate only?
I’m confused is to whether I inflate at all at the real rate!
Thank you Toni

I advise you take a look at the video lectures on Chapter 8 dealing with inflation including effective (or real) rates. The real project NPV is calculated using the effective (or real) rate and the nominal or actual NPV is calculated using the nominal or actual cost of capital. To calculate the real NPV you must first calculate the effective cost of capital using the fisher model.
Inflating the cash flows will depend on the question as some cash flows are expected to inflate at the same rate.
I hope this will be of help.
