A company is considering a new project with a life of 15 years. It requires an initial

investment of $5,000 payable immediately. In the first two years it will generate net cash inflow

of $2,000 per year receivable at the end of each year. After that its net cash inflows will be

$1,000 per year at the end of each of the next 13 years.

The company s cost of capital is 12% per year. ’

Task 1 6 marks

Non-discounted payback period (to the nearest year) _______ years

Net present value (to the nearest $100) $___________

Discounted payback period (to the nearest year ________yearsFor Non discounted payback I get three years and NPV is 8502-5000= 3502

I am not sure about Discounted payback which i got was 5 years.

Please help me on this>April 22, 2023 at 10:02 am #683348Why are you attempting a question for which you do not have an answer? You should be using a Revision Kit from one of the ACCA Approved Publishers – it has answers and explanations.

Your non-discounted payback period and your NPV are correct.

The discounted payback period is calculated in exactly the same way as the non-discounted payback period except we use the discounted cash flows instead of the actual cash flows (as explained (with example) in my free lectures. The lectures are a complete free course for Paper MA and cover everything needed to be able to pass the exam well.

June 19, 2023 at 3:42 pm #687239The cash flows are a follows:

0 (5,000)

1 – 2 2,000 per year

3 – 15 1,000 per yearThese flows are discounted at 12% p.a. in the way that is explained in my free lectures on this.
