Present Value Of Future Payments (E)


Project Management



What is the project? How to select and justify the project? How to plan and execute the project?


Posted: Sep 2010

Finding the present value of future payments is called discounting. The purpose of discounting process is finding the present value of a cash flow a certain number of time periods in the future. As you work backward from the future payments to get to the present value, the future sums decrease until you reach the present value. This process is the reverse of the compounding process, which is the process for finding the time value of money.

Here is another way to think about discounting. If you received €10,000 today, the present value would obviously be €10,000 because the present value is what your investment gives you now if you were to spend it today. If €10,000 were to be received in a year, the present value of the amount would not be €10,000, because you do not have it in your hand now, in the present.

To find the present value of the €10,000 that you will receive in the future, you will need to consider the €10,000 as the total future value of an amount that you invested today. In other words, to find the present value of the future €10,000, we need to find out how much we would invest today in order to receive that €10,000 in the future.

The formula for finding the present value of future payments is:

Project Management

FVn - Value of the money after the end of periods

i – Interest rate

n – Number of periods

Project Management is a management method that is used to plan, organize and control project activities. The project is initiated by executive committee that will initiate project work.The basic concept of Project Management is the delegation of general management authority to the Project Leader.

This formula uses the same four variables as the formula for the time value of money (present value, future value, interest rate, and number of periods). As with the time value of money calculation, if three of the four variables of the equation are known, then the value of the fourth variable can be determined.
