Concept name Description
Net Present value (NPV) Net present value (NPV) is the difference between the present value of cash
inflows and the present value of cash outflows over a period of time. NPV is used
in capital budgeting and investment planning to analyze the profitability of a
projected investment or project.

Internal rate of return (IRR) is a metric used in capital budgeting to estimate the
profitability of potential investments. Internal rate of return is a discount rate that
makes the net present value (NPV) of all cash flows from a particular project equal
Internal rate of return to zero. IRR calculations rely on the same formula as NPV does
