    This is and please quote me if am wrong

    IRR Is the amount of time it takes to recevie your money back from an investment e.g

    you buy a peice of machinery for 1000 it makes 500 per year

    So the investment return would be 2 years

    The Internal Rate of Return is the discount rate at which the net present value of the project is zero. This means that if the project was financed with a loan that carried a 12.5% interest rate, then it would neither make nor lose money for the organisation.

    If the cost of capital of the organisation is less than 12.5%, then the project will increase the value of the organisation as a whole and so should be undertaken. If it cannot, then it wil destroy value and should not be undertaken. For example, if it could finance the project with an 8% loan, then it would make money.
