It is the time taken to recover the costs of an asset. If you have a capital expense of £30,000, and your net cash flow was £10,000 per year the payback period would be exactly three years.
Year 0 = 0 income (30,000)
Year 1 = 10,000 income (20,000)
Year 2 = 10,000 income (10,000)
Year 3 = 10,000 income 0  so the expense has been recovered
Year 0 = 0 income (30,000)
Year 1 = 12,000 (18,000)
Year 2 = 12,000 (6,000)
<
payback period will be inbetween yrs 2 & 3
Year 3 = 12,000 6,000
At the end of year 3 we have recovered an extra 6,000  so the payback period will be between year 2 and year 3. Assuming net income is 1,000 per month we can tell that it was paid 6 months into year 2, so your payback period will be 2 yrs 6 months.0
