Budgeting Model Case Paper February 24, 2014 When incorporating whether to purchase Corporation A or Corporation B, it was easy to choose Corporation B.

Net profit revenue uses the rate to help find the internal rate of return. Using the $250,000 as a starting point in both calculations of net profit revenue and internal rate of return
