There are different types of investment appraisalmethods such as Accounting rate of return (ARR), Paybackperiod (PP), Net present value (NPV), Internal rate of return(IRR), and Profitability index (PI). Time is a very essential feature of investmentdecisions. ARR and PP do not take into consideration the timevalue of money, and do not give an indication of the amount of capital investment required. The remaining three methods(NPV, IRR, PI) considers the time value of money and are calledthe Discounted cash flow techniques.
