- As soon as this amount is acknowledged, it is plowed in a project related alternative profit-making turnover. Thus, any venture project faces an opportunity cost for cash devoted to it.
- Moreover, as the development job takes time and may extend over many years, the time-related value of the associated fund is considered as a note-worthy aspect for decision making.
To make a better understanding of the time-related value of the fund, the future money flow gained for the venture are attuned to their present value using a preset discount rate. The amount resulting from the summation of future flow cash discounted values minus the initial investment from its accounts for the net present value of the business. NPV is the economic value representation of the project at the current given point in time.
In addition to this, a discount rate is also used to influence the calculated NPVs.
- The final designing step of capital investment model should be in such a way to optimize the economic value of the firm by raising the future fund flows’ net present value.
A positive NPV of a scheme assures an earning of higher return rates compared to its discounted rate.
