Because the payback period is under 3 years, the project fits the limit policy, and it is acceptable. 4. Additional investment in land and building is a relevant cash flow, so it must be added to the initial investment, and depending on the amount of money invested in this topic, the NPV could become negative and in that case, the project will be rejected via the NPV criteria.
