my first year pv is correct = 467277.4

year 2 = 474353.6

year 3 = 401194.2

year 4 = 474002

year 5 = 803444.6

agr ye value thek hen tu me ghlti year 0 me kri hungi cz i didnt include consultant fee. sulaiman can u plz chk k year 0 me sir ki PV = (2300,000)  (lec 9 slide # 16) hai q k sir ne cost and working capital include kia bs. he didnt include consultant there. aur year one ki calculation me b kahen consultant fee ki amount include ni hui. apki ppt me b yehi value hai na?

mene bi phir isi trah year 0 me cost + work cap lia hai sirf = (2850,000) - sirf ye value apki different hgi hai na?

Benefit after tax = (benefit - dep) x (1-tax rate) + dep

eg: year 1 = (650,000 - 470,000) x (1-20%) + 470,000 = 614,000 - 100,000 (work cap) = 514,000 then apply df 10%

CF1 bilkul same ai hy .. 514000 ...

me ny abhi written bnai hy .. me type ker k solution share kerta hu abhi ..

i hv the same working according to my method

Yes, jab cashflows calculate kerni hy tab consultant fee or acquistion cost dono ni use kerni kyu k Capital Budgeting Decision me ye dono irrelevant hy .. 

CF1 = (650,000-470,000)* (0.80) + 470,000 = 614,000
For the requirement of Working Capital in year 1, working capital will be deducted from after tax cash flow
CF1 = 614,000 -100,000 = Rs. 514,000

CF2 = (600,000 - 470,000)* (0.80) + 470,000 = Rs. 574,000
CF3 = (650,000 - 470,000)* (0.80) + 470,000 = Rs. 614,000
CF4 = (750,000 - 470,000)* (0.80) + 470,000 = Rs. 694,000
CF5 = (1,350,000 - 470,000)* (0.80) + 470,000 = Rs. 1,174,000

PV0 = (2,850,000)
PV1 = 467,277.4
PV2 = 474,353.6
PV3 = 461,298.2
PV4 = 474,002.0
PV5 = 728,936.6

NPV = (244132)


my Npv is 229469.4
