BFA103 FINANCIAL ACCOUNTING AND DECISION MAKING TUTOR NOTES Unit 9 – Capital Investment Decisions Discussion Questions 11.1 Typical characteristics of investment decisions: (a) Significant cash outflows. (b) Projected returns (cash or accrual) over an extended period of time. (c) A high opportunity cost to abandon or bail out. 11.4 On purely economic grounds a dollar earlier is preferred to a dollar later, because the dollar received earlier can be invested at a risk-free interest rate to accumulate to a larger future sum. eg \$1.00 invested for one period at 10% p.a. is equal to \$1.10 in one period time. Exercises 11.1 Included in textbook 11.2 \$ (a) (i) Annual changes in revenue nil Annual changes in cash expenses 9,500 (down) Annual depreciation expense 5,000 (up) (\$30,000 ÷ 6) Annual change in net profit 4,500 (up) Annual change in tax (30%) 1,350 (up) Annual change in net profit after tax 3,150 (up) (ii) Average investment \$30,000 ÷ 2 = \$15,000 Accounting rate of return = Average return ÷ investment = \$3,150 ÷ \$15,000 = 21.0% (b) Cash payback = Cash outflow ÷ average cash inflow = \$30,000 ÷ \$8,150* = 3.68 years

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
