Hi,

I stuggled with this question aswell.

Year 1 - 64,000 + 50,090 = 114,090 * 0.893 = 101,882 (rounded)
Year 2 - 63,400 + 48,350 = 111,750 * 0.797 = 89,065 (rounded)
Year 3 - 65,800 + 36,560 + 30,000(scrap value) = 132,360 * 0.712 = 94,240 (rounded)

Net Present Value is then = -165,000 + 101,882 + 89,065 + 132,360 = 120,187

Sorry the last line I accidently included the wrong figure. I have corrected it below:

Net Present Value is then = -165,000 + 101,882 + 89,065 +94,240= 120,187

Momena has the correct values but I just want to add the reason behind it.

Cash flows are only looking at the actual cash transfers.

When you have depreciation there is no cash changing hands as such you need to add back the depreciation that has been taken to make the P&L.

This would also apply to sales of fixed assets, in the P&L you'll show the overall profit/loss not the cash flow. You would remove the profit/loss from selling the asset and add in the actual sale amount of the asset.

Hopefully this will help with similar questions in the future.

Thanks for all the answers in the comments section, helpful. I'm sitting my synoptics this coming Thursday (11th). Just been looking over the AVBK questions this afternoon.
