Net Present Value (NPV)

Net Value Present is a way to evaluate the value of a project. It is more sophisticated than a simple cost/benefit analysis because it takes into account the relative value of money over time.

For example, let’s say you have a project that costs $50,000, but will result in saving of $10,000 per year.

You could say that the project has a five-year payback, since it takes five years of benefit to equal the cost. However, that is not totally accurate. Even if the cost of capital was zero, you must also recognize that the future value of money is less than it is today.

If you were in charge of the company's money, would you rather have $50,000 today or $50,000 five years from now? Of course, you would rather have it today. If you had it today, you could put the money into a safe investment and earn interest.

NPV recognizes that inflation erodes the value of money over time. You also know that there is some level ofrisk that a problem might keep you from paying the money back in five years. Net Present Value (NPV) takes all of that into account.

As you compare projects, you may find that Project A has a larger financial payback over five years than a second Project B has over three years. However, Project B may have the better NPV since it reaches its payback sooner.
