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 ________years
For Non discounted payback I get three years and NPV is 8502-5000= 3502

Why 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.
