The value of money received today is different from the value of money received after some time in
the future. An important financial principle is that the value of money is time dependent. This
principle is based on the following four reasons:
1. Inflation – Under inflationary conditions the value of money, expressed in term of its purchasing
power over goods and services, declines.
2. Risk – ` 1 now is certain, whereas ` 1 receivable tomorrow is less certain.
3. Present Consumption Preference – Many individuals have a strong preference for immediate
rather than delayed consumption.
4. Investment opportunities – Money like any other desirable commodity, has a price, given the
choice of ` 100 now or the same amount in one year’s time, it is always preferable to take ` 100
now because it could be invested over the next year at (say) 18% interest rate to produce ` 118
at the end of one year.
Simple interest is the interest calculated on the original principal only for the time during which the
money lent is being used. Simple interest is paid or earned on the principal amount lent or
borrowed. Simple interest is ascertained with the help of the following formula:
= P (1 + nr)
= Rate of Interest per annum (r being in decimal)
= Number of years
Illustration 1: What is the simple interest and amount of ` 8,000 for 4 years at 12% p.a.
Amount Interest CA- IPCC = Pnr
= 8,000 X 4 X 0.12
= ` 3,840
= P (1 + nr)
= 8,000 [1 + (4 X 0.12)]
= 8,000 (1 + 0.48)
= 8,000 X 1.48
= ` 11,840
= Amount – Principal
= 11,840 – 8,000
= ` 3,840 1.1 CA. RAJ K AGRAWAL FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT TIME VALUE OF MONEY Illustration 2: At what rate percent will ` 26,435 amount to ` 31,722 in 4 years?
Rate of interest = P(1 + nr)
= 26,435 (1 + 4 r/100)
= 26,435 + 1,05,740 r/100
= 31,722 – 26,435
= 5,287 / 1,057.40 = 5
= 5% Illustration 3: A sum deposited at a bank fetches ` 13,440 after 5 years at 12% simple rate of
interest. Find the principal amount.
Principal amount = P (1 + nr)
= P (1 + 5 X 0.12)
= P + P 0.6
= 13,440 / 1.6 = 8,400
= ` 8,400 Compound Interest
If interest for one period is added to the principal to get the principal for the next period, it is called
‘compounded interest’. The time period for compounding the interest may be annual, semiannual or
any other regular period of time. The period after which interest becomes due is called ‘interest
period’ or ‘conversion period’. If conversion period is not mentioned, interest is to be compounded
annually. The formula used for compounding of interest income over ‘n’ number of years.
= P (1 + i)n
= Amount at the end of ‘n’ period
= Principal amount at the beginning of the ‘n’ period
= Rate of interest per payment period (in decimal)
= Number of payment periods

Solution: A CI = P (1 + i)n
= 6,000 ( 1 + 0.09)3
= 6,000 (1.09)3
= 6,000 X 1.29503
= 7,770 – 6,000 = ` 7,770

P = P (1 + i) n
= P (1 + 0.085)6
= P (1.085)6
= P X 1.63147
= 3,065 Illustration 6: Find the compound interest on ` 2,500 for 15 months at 8% compounded quarterly.
Solution: A A
Compound Interest = P (1 + i/4)4n
= 2,500 (1 + 0.08/4)4 X 1.25
= 2,500 (1 + 0.02)5
= 2,500 (1.02)5
= 2,500 X 1.104
= 2,760 – 2,500 = ` 2,760
= ` 260 Illustration 7: Assume that a deposit is to be made at year zero into an account that will earn 8%
compounded annually. It is desired to withdraw ` 5,000 three years from now and ` 7,000 six years
from now. What is the size of the year zero deposit that will produce these future payments?
Solution: Let the initial deposit be sum of the present value of the two later withdrawals by using
the present value table.
FV X PVF(r,n)
` 5,000 PVF (8%, 3) + ` 7,000 X PVF (8%, 6)
` 5,000 (.794) + ` 7,000 (.630)
` 3,970 + ` 4,410 = ` 8,380.
An amount of ` 8,380 deposited today will result in the desired withdrawals. CA- IPCC 1.3 CA. RAJ K AGRAWAL FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT TIME VALUE OF MONEY Illustration 8: Assume that a ` 20,00,000 plant expansion is be financed as follows: The firm makes a
15% down payment and borrows the remainder at 9% interest rate. The loan is to be repaid in 8
equal annual instalments beginning 4 years from now. What is the size of the required annual loan
Solution: The firm borrows ` 17,00,000 (85%). Compound interest occurs over the entire 11 years of
the life of the loan.
To compute the size of the annual payment, first compute the amount owed at the end of year 3
(one year before the first payment). By compounding ` 17,00,000 for three years at 9%,
PV (1 + r) n
` 17,00,000 (1 + .09)3
Now the FV becomes the present value of the 8-payment annuity discounted at 9%.
Annuity Amount X PVAF
Annuity Amount X PVAF (9%, 8)
Annuity Amount X (5.535)
The plant expansion financing plan can be summarized as follows: - Down payment at year zero of `
3,00,000; the balance borrowed at 9% interest. Eight yearly loan repayments of ` 3,97,750 are to be
made beginning at the end of year 4.
Illustration 9: A potential investor is considering the purchase of a bond that has the following
characteristics: the bond pays 8% per year on its ` 1,000 principal, or face value. The bond will
mature in 20 years. At maturity, the bondholder will receive interest for year 20 plus ` 1,000 face
value. What is the maximum purchase price that should be paid for this bond if the investor requires
a 10% rate of return?
Solution: Assume that if the bond is purchased now, the first interest payment will be received in
one year and that the bond will mature 20 years from now. The yearly interest payment will be ` 80
(8% of ` 1,000). In year 20 a payment of ` 1,080 will be received (` 1,000 + ` 80).
The maximum purchase price for this bond is the sum of the present value of the future inflows
discounted at the 10% required rate of return. The interest payments are treated as an annuity; the
` 1,000 principal is discounted as a single payment. The present value of the interest payments is
found by discounting for 20 payments and 10% interest.
Annuity Amount X PVAF (10%, 20Y)
` 80 X PVAF
= ` 681.12
Now, the present value of ` 1,000 receivable at the end of year 20 can be found by discounting for
20 years at 10% interest.
FV X PVF(r,n) CA- IPCC 1.4 CA. RAJ K AGRAWAL FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT TIME VALUE OF MONEY PV
FV X PVF(10%,20)
1,000 (.149) = ` 149
The maximum purchase price is thus ` 681.12 + ` 149.00 = ` 830.12
Illustration 10: A 10-year savings annuity of ` 2,000 per year is beginning at the end of current year.
The payment of retirement annuity is to begin 16 years from now (the first payment is to be received
at the end of year 16) and will continue to provide a 20-year payment annuity. If this plan is arranged
through a savings bank that pays interest @ 7% per year on the deposited funds, what is the size of
the yearly retirement annuity that will result?
Solution: Obtain the compounded amount of the 10-payment savings annuity of ` 2,000
corresponding to 10 payments and 7%.
Annuity Amount X FVAF(r,n)
` 2,000 X FVAF (7%, 9Y+1)
2,000 (13.816) = ` 27,632
The amount of ` 27,632 is available immediately after the last payment. Now, compound the
amount of ` 27,632 for 5 years as a single payment at 7%. This will give the total cumulative value in
the beginning of year 16.
PV X FVF(r,n)
PV X FVF (7%, 5)
27,632(1.403) = ` 38,768.
Finally, obtain the size of the equal retirement annuity payment by using the amount of ` 38,768 as
the present value of the retirement annuity. Substitute the values corresponding to 20-payments
and 7% as follows:
Annuity Amount X PVAF(r,n)
Annuity Amount X PVAF (7%,20)
Annuity Amount (10.594)
Thus, the savings annuity of ` 2,000 for 10 years will produce a 20 years retirement annuity of `
3,659 per year starting at the end of 16 years from now.
Illustration 11: A company is offered a contract which has the following terms: An immediate cash
outlay of ` 15,000 followed by a cash inflow of ` 17,900 after 3 years. What is the company’s rate of
return on this contract?
Solution: The amount of ` 15,000 cash outflow may be treated as a principal which the company
deposits into an account that pays an unknown rate of interest but returns a compounded amount
of ` 17,900 after 3 years.

credited @ 10% p.a. How much amount can be withdrawn annually for a period of 15 years?
Solution: In this case, the deposit of ` 1,00,000 can be viewed as the present value of the future
annuity of 15 years @ 10%.
Annuity Amount X PVAF(10% 15y)
Annuity Amount X 7.606
1,00,000 ÷ 7.606 = ` 13,148
So the investor can withdraw an annuity of ` 13,148 for 15 years.
Illustration 13: What is the minimum amount which a person should be ready to accept today from
a debtor who otherwise has to pay a sum of ` 5,000 today and ` 6,000, ` 8,000, 9,000 and ` 10,000
at the end of year 1,2,3,4 respectively from today? The rate of interest may be taken at 14%.
Solution: The minimum amount in this case is the PV of the series of amount due discounted at 14%,
The minimum acceptable amount is ` 28,409.
