Discounted Cash Flow
The discounted cash flow technique is a financial forecasting method that helps businesses determine how much money they will have leftover after investing in a project. The technique takes into account the future cash inflows and outflows related to the project and calculates the present value of those future cash flows. This information can help businesses make more informed decisions about whether to invest in a project or not.
The discounted cash flow technique is an approach to project evaluation based on the time value of money. The time value of money is a concept that states that money has a real value today and will be worth more in the future. To calculate the present value of a future cash flow, it is necessary to determine the amount of money required to be invested today and at each point in the future in order to recoup the original investment. This amount is called the “discount rate”.
