hi sir, i was going through the technical article after chapter 8 ” advance investment appraisal ” i could not understand what they meant by fixed appraisal horizon, can you please help me out with that nd also i am writing my paper in a weeks time on dec 6 any important aspects that i can focus on sir? thank you for your notes and your lectures sir i am going through all of it and solving one of my exam kit provided by kaplan publishing will that be enough for the exam sir? thank you in advance.

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!

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.
