Cash Flows

Am i right in thinking that on a table when it shows net cash flow and cumulative cash flow you use the net cash flow for NPV and cumulative cash flow for payback?

Thanks

    Yes

    discount each year to find the discounted cash flow (or present value of the cash flow) for that year. Then add these annual values to find the Net Present Value of the project

    Find the cumulative cashflow each year.
    Then when you're cumulative cash flow at the end of a year exceeds the initial investment your project has paid back during that year.
