343. The IRR is the discount rate which makes the net present value of a project equal to zero. This rate is the maximum discount rate which can be applied to the project and still cause the project to be acceptable. By knowing the IRR, decision makers know that the project will remain acceptable as long as the discount rate does not increase to a level above that of the IRR. The IRR is the turning point between an accept and a reject decision.
