1.

To determine

Calculate the present value of the after tax depreciation, assume that straight-line depreciation with a half-year life is used.

### Explanation of Solution

Net present value method (NVP): Net present value method is the method which is used to compare the initial cash outflow of investment with the present value of its cash inflows. In the net present value, the interest rate is desired by the business based on the net income from the investment, and it is also called as the discounted cash flow method.

Calculate the present value of the after tax depreciation, assume that straight-line depreciation with a half-year life is used:

 Year Annual deprecation (A) (1) Deprecation after tax (B)(A×40%) Discount factor @ 12% (C) Present value (B×C) 1 3,000 $1,200 0.893$1,072 2 6,000 $2,400 0.797$1,913 3 6,000 \$2,400 0

2.

To determine

Calculate the present value of the after tax depreciation, assume that MACRS method is used.

3.

To determine

State the benefits that the company enjoys when using MACRS method of depreciation.
