# Annual Cash Flow

Suppose you are considering investing in a landscaping business. The cost of the equipment is \$80,000 and you will need to invest another \$20,000 in net working capital. You estimate that the business will generate net income of \$15,000 each year over the next five years. At the end of five years, you will sell the equipment and client list for an estimated \$50,000 after taxes and the working capital you invested at the beginning of the project will be released (liquidated) for \$20,000. All assets will be depreciated using straight line depreciation over 5 years. Calculate the annual cash flows associated with this investment over its life.
