Project A Project B
Investment in high speed photocopier $50,000
Investment in working capital $50,000
Net annual cash inflows $9,000
Life of the project 8 years 8 years
The high-speed photocopier would have a salvage value of $5,000 in eight years. For tax purposes, the company computes depreciation deductions assuming zero salvage value and uses straight-line depreciation. The photocopier would be depreciated over eight yea rs. At the end of eight years, the investment in working capital would be released for use elsewhere. The company requires an after-tax return of 10% on all investments. The tax rate is 30%.
