Calculation of Interest
• Simple
• Compound
• Rule of 72
• Sinking fund method
• Annuities ordinary annuity and annuity due
• Amortization of debts (EMI)
• Perpetuities (infinite series of payment made at fixed
intervals )

Calculation of Simple and compound Interest1
• Total repayment = Principle + interest
• Rate of Interest
– Simple Interest = Principle X time period X rate
– When interest earns interest , it is called Compounded interest
– Fixed Interest rate and floating interest rate
– Front end and back end interest
– Teaser rate of interest
• In how many years will take to double your money with
specific rate of interest is called RULE 72.
• An annuity is a series of payments made at fixed intervals .
types of annuities are :
– Ordinary annuity and ( payment at the end of period)
– Annuity Due ( Payment at beginning of each period)
– Present value and Future value of both annuities are different

Simple Interest
• 'Simple' interest or 'flat rate' interest is the amount of interest paid
each year in a fixed percentage of the amount borrowed or lent at the
start.
• Formula for calculating simple interest :
Interest = Principal x Rate x Time (PRT), where:
• 'Interest' is the total amount of interest paid
'Principal' is the amount lent or borrowed
'Rate' is the percentage of the principal charged as interest each year.
'Time' is the time in years of the loan.
• Example :
• Principal: 'P' = Rs. 50,000, Interest rate: 'R' = 10% = 0.10, Repayment
time: T = 3 years. Find the amount of interest paid.
• Interest = PRT
= 50,000x0.10x3
= Rs. 15,000

• Simple Intt : P x R x T
• A sum of money amount to Rs.2,240 @ 4% simple interest in 3
years. Find the interest on the same sum for 6 months @ 3.5%
p.a.
• a. Rs. 35
• b. Rs. 40
• c. Rs. 45
• d. Rs. 50
• Ans – a
• A=P(1+rt)= 2240=P(1+4/100 X3)=28/25
• 2240/28*25=2000
• 3.5% of 2000= 70 and six month is rs.35/

• At 5% per annum simple interest, Rahul borrowed Rs. 500.
What amount will he pay to clear the debt after 4 years ?
– A. 750
– B. 700
– C. 650
– D. 600
• Ans  D
• Explanation:
• We need to calculate the total amount to be paid by him
after 4 years, So it will be
• Principal + simple interest.
• So,=>500+500*5*4/100
• =>Rs.600
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 7
Compound Interest
• Compound interest is paid on the original principal and accumulated part of
interest.
• A=P(1+r)n
• P = the principal
A = the amount of money accumulated after n years
r = Annual the rate
n = number of years that interest is compounded
• Formula for calculating compound interest :
• A = P(1 +r/n)^nt, where
• P = the principal
A = the amount deposited
r = the rate (expressed as fraction, e.g. 6 per cent = 0.06)
n = number of times per year that interest is compounded
t = number of years invested
• Frequently compounding of Interest. If the interest is compounded :
Annually = P (1 + r)
Quarterly = P (1 + r/4)^4
Monthly = P (1 + r/12)^12
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 8
• What is the principal amount which earns Rs. 264 as compound
interest for the second year @ 10% p.a.?
– a. Rs. 2,000
– b. Rs. 2,200
– c. Rs. 2,400
– d. Rs. 2,600
• Ans  c
• Solution :
• A = P(1+r/100) n
– In the formula, A represents the final amount in the account after n years at interest rate 'r' with
starting amount 'p'.
– P 2nd year = 2640
– A 1st Year = 2640
• P 1st = (2640/110*100) = 2400
• Rs. 400 at 5% p.a. compound interest will amount to Rs. 441 in......
– a. 1 year
– b. 2 years
– c. 3 years
– d. 4 years

• Find the compound interest on Rs 160000 for one year at the
rate of 20% per annum, if the interest is compounded
quarterly.
• Solution:
• Given:
• P = Rs 160,000
• R = 20 % p. a.
• n = 1 year
• We know that:
• A = P(1+R/400)4n
• A = 160000(1+20/400)4
• A = 160000(1.05)4
• A = Rs 19,4481
• Now, CI = A – P = Rs 19,448.1 – Rs 16,000 = Rs 3,4481
• Mewa Lal borrowed Rs 20000 from his friend Rooplal at 18%
per annum simple interest. He lent it to Rampal at the same
rate but compounded annually. Find his gain after 2 years.
• Solution:
• SI for Mewa Lal = P*R*T = 20000×18/100×2 = Rs 7,200
• Thus, he has to pay Rs 7,200 as interest after borrowing CI for
Mewa Lal = A – P
• = 20000(1+18/100)2 – 20,000
• = 20000(1.18)2 – 20,000
• = 27,848 20,000
• = Rs 7,848
• He gained Rs 7,848 as interest after lending. His gain in the
whole transaction
• = Rs 7,848 – Rs 7,200 = Rs 648
• Rohit deposited Rs 8000 with a finance company for 3 years at
an interest of 15% per annum. What is the compound interest
that Rohit gets after 3 years?
• Solution:
• We know that amount A at the end of n years at the rate of R% per
annum is given by = A = P(1+R/100)n
• Given:
• P = Rs 8,000
• R = 15% p.a.
• n = 3 years.
• Now,
• A = 8000(1+15/100)3
• A = 8000(115/100)3
• A = Rs. 12,167
• And, CI = A – P = Rs 12,167 – Rs 8,000 = Rs 4,167
• In a laboratory, the count of bacteria in a certain experiment was increasing at
the rate of 2.5% per hour. Find the bacteria at the end of 2 hours if the count was
initially 5,06,000.
• Ans. Here, Principal (P) = 5,06,000, Rate of Interest (R) = 2.5%, Time = 2 hours
• After 2 hours, number of bacteria,
• Amount (A) =
•
• =
• =
• 5,31,616.25
• Hence, number of bacteria after two hours are 531616 (approx.).
• Qus. If the simple interest on a sum of money at 5% per annum for 3 years is Rs. 1200, find
the compound interest on the same sum for the same period at the same rate.
Sol. Clearly, Rate = 5% p.a., Time = 3 years, S.I.= Rs. 1200. ..
So principal=RS [100*1200]/3*5=RS 8000
Amount = Rs. 8000 x [1 +5/100]^3  = Rs. 9261.
.. C.I. = Rs. (9261  8000) = Rs. 1261.
• The difference between the S.I. and C.I. on a certain sum of money for 2 years at 4% per
annum is Rs 20. Find the sum.
• Solution:
• Given:
• CI – SI = Rs 20
• [P(1+4/100)2−P]−P×4/100×2=20 P[(1.04)2−P]−0.08P=20
• 0.0816P – 0.08P = 20
• 0.0016P = 20
• P = 200.0016
• P = 12500
• Thus, the required sum is Rs 12500.
• ) The present population of a town is 25000. It grows at 4%, 5% and 8% during first year,
second year and third year respectively. Find its population after 3 years.
• Solution:
• Here,
• P = Initial population = 25000
• R1 = 4%
• R2 = 5%
• R3 = 8%
• n = Number of years = 3
• Therefore, Population after three years = P(1+R1/100)(1+R2/100)
(1+R/3100)
• = 25000(1+4100)(1+5100)(1+8100)
• = 25000 (1.04) (1.05) (1.08)
• = 29484
• Hence, the population after three years will be 29484.
•
• Aman started a factory with an initial
investment of its 100000. In the first year, he
incurred a loss of 5%. However, during the
second year, he earned a profit of 10% which is
the third year rose to 12%. Calculate his net
profit for the entire period of three years.
• Solution:
• Aman’s profit for three years = P(1−R1/100)(1+R2/100)(1+R3/100)
• = 100000(1−5/100)(1+10/100)(1+12/100)
• = 100000 (0.95) (1.10) (1.12)
• = 117040
• Therefore, Net profit = Rs 117,040 – Rs 100,000
• = Rs 17,040
• The cost of a T.V. set was quoted Rs 17000 at the
beginning of 2015. In the beginning of 2016 the
price was hiked by 5%. Because of decrease in
demand the cost was reduced by 4% in the
beginning of 2017. What was the cost of the T.V. set
in 2017?
• Solution:
• Cost of the TV = P(1+R/100)(1−R/100)
• => 17000(1+5/100)(1−4/100)
• = 17,000 (1.05) (0.96)
• = 17,136
• Thus, the cost of the TV in 2017 was Rs 17,136.
• Ashish started the business with an initial
investment of Rs 500000. In the first year he
incurred a loss of 4%. However during the
second year he earned a profit of 5% which in
third year rose to 10%. Calculate the net profit
for the entire period of 3 years.
• Solution:
• Profit for three years = P(1−R1/100)(1+R2/100)
(1+R3/100)
• => 500000(1−4/100)(1+5/100)(1+10/100)
• = 500,000 (0.96) (1.05) (1.10) = 554,400
• Thus, the net profit is Rs 554,400
• Illustration
• The population of an industrial town is increasing by 5 per cent
every year. If the present population is 1 million, estimate the
population five years hence. Also, estimate the population three
years ago.
• Solution
• Present population, P = 1 million, rate of increase = 5% per annum
• A = P(1+R/100)n
• Hence, the population after 5 years
• = 10,00,000 (1.05)5
• = 12,76,280
• P= A /(1+R/100)n
• Population three years ago = 10,00,000/ (1.05)3= 8,63,838
• Since the population three years ago, compounded at 5 per cent, is
equal to 1 million, today.

• What will be the compound interest on Rs. 25000 after 3
years at the rate of 12 % per annum?
– a. Rs 10123.20
b. Rs 10123.30
c. Rs 10123.40
d. Rs 10123.50
• Ans  a
• Explanation:
• A=P(1+r)n
• = (25000×(1+12/100)^3)
= 25000×(28/25)^3
= 35123.20
• So Compound interest will be 35123.20  25000
• = Rs 10123.20

Sinking Fund
• A sinking fund is an account earning compound
interest into which you make periodic deposits.
• Suppose that the account has an annual interest
rate of compounded times per year, so that is
the interest rate per compounding period.
• If you make a payment of at the end of each
period, then the future value after years, or
periods, will be
• FV=PMT { (1+i)n 1 }
• i
• Payment Formula for a Sinking Fund
• Suppose that an account has an annual rate of
compounded M times per year,
• so that i = R/M is the interest rate per
compounding period.
• If you want to accumulate a total of FV in the
account after T years, or N=MT periods, by
making payments PMT of at the end of each
period, then each payment must be .
• PMT= FV
• Sinking fund is created to accumulate the principle at
the end of term of loan period or end of life of assets
• schedule showing how a sinking fund accumulates to
the desired amount is called sinking fund schedule
• Sinking fund deposit is determined by the SIZE of the
payment to be made at the end of a particular period
• Sinking fund are used to pay –off debts, to redeem
bonds issues , to replace wornout equipment , to buy
new equipment ,
• It is also one of the Depreciation method
• Formula for Sinking Fund ===
• F (future value) = A{ (1+i)n 1}

• Prakash Publishers buy a machine for Rs. 20,000. The rate of
depreciation is 10 per cent. Find the depreciated value of the machine
after 3 years. Also, find the amount of depreciation. What is the
average rate of depreciation?
• Solution
• Original value of machine = Rs. 20,000,
• Rate of depreciation, i = 10%
• Hence, the book value after 3 years = 20,000(10.1) 3
• = 20,000(0.9)3
• = 20,000 (0.729) = Rs. 14,580.
• Amount of depreciation in 3 years = Rs. 20,000  Rs. 14,580 = Rs. 5,420
• Average rate of depreciation in 3 years
• (5,420/20,000) x (100/3) = 9.033%
• Qus :An annuity consists of monthly repayments of Rs. 600 made over 20
years.
– (a) What is the present value of the annuity?
– (b) How much money is repaid?
– (c) What is the future value of the payments?
– (assume 14 per cent compounded monthly)
• Solution a
• r = 0.14/12 = 0.0117
• n= 20 x 12 = 240
• F= 600 [(1 +0.14/12)2401/0.14/12]
• F = 48,250.10 (The present value of annuity)
• Solution b
• The amount repaid = 600 x 12 x 20 = 1,44,000
• Solution c
• F= 600 [(1 +0.14/12)2401/0.14/12]
• = 7, 80,699.45
• The future value of the annuity is Rs. 7,80.699.45
Repayment of Debts
• Most popular method of paying Loans is EMI. It is called
Amortization Method .
• ENTIRE PERIOD OF PAYMENT IS CALLED TERM OF
ANNUITY AND
• EACH PERIOD OF PAYMENT (Month, quarter, year etc )is
called payment period
• equal monthly /quarterly installment of principle PLUS
interest applied during the period
• Equated monthly /quarterly installment covering both the
principle and interest
• Bullet repayment under the entire loan amount is repaid at
the end of the period
• Balloon repayment is that amount of repayment increased
slowly every month
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 31
Understanding Formula for EMI, Annuities
• Let us take case of a Car loan of Rs 1lac at 12%p.a. ,repayable in 180
installments (here p=1,00,000and r=12/100*12=.01)
– In the 1st month, bank will charge interest equal to p*r=Rs 1000 and so, the
outstanding amount will become Rs 1,01,000.
• What happens if the EMI is fixed at p*r, which is Rs 1000?
• This EMI will meet only the interest applied and so the principal will remain
unchanged at Rs 1,00,000.
• This process will continue and the loan will remain outstanding for ever.
Therefore, EMI has to be slightly more than p*r so that some amount can go
towards reducing the principal amount
• If EMI has to be more than p*r, we should multiply p*r by a fig which is more
than 1.
• This fig is (1+r)n
• (1+r)n 1.
• You will observe that denominator in less than numerator by 1 only. E.g.,
if numerator is 5.2310, the denominator will be 4.2310 . So, this fig is
always more than 1.
• Therefore, in a question, if periodic payment ,n and r are given, you can
calculate PV. FV is calculated by multiplying PV by (1+r)n.•
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 32
Formula FOR EMI
• E = P×r×(1 + r)n/((1 + r)n  1)
• E = is EMI
• P = is Principle Loan Amount
• r = is rate of interest
• If calculated in monthly basis it should be = Rate of Annual
interest/12/100
• if its 10% annual ,then its 10/12/100=0.00833
• n = is tenure in number of months
• Example :
• For 100000 at 10% annual interest for a period of 12 months,
it comes to :
• 100000*0.00833*(1 + 0.00833)12/((1 + 0.00833)12  1) = 8792
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 33
Annuities
• An annuity is any series of equal payments that are made at
regular intervals.
• Types of annuities are :
– Ordinary annuity and ( payment at the end of period)
– Annuity Due ( Payment at beginning of each period)
• The periods between payments in an annuity can be just
about anything  years, months, weeks;
• It doesn't matter as long as the interval is consistent
• Present value and Future value of both annuities
are different
• The difference lies in the timing of each payment relative to
the period the payment covers.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 34
• if you're the one making the payments, you're
better off with an ordinary annuity.
• If you're the one receiving the payments,
you're better off with an annuity due.
• The reason lies in a basic principle of finance
known as the "time value of money":
• Each payment of an ordinary annuity belongs
to the payment period preceding its date,
• while the payment of an annuitydue refers to
a payment period following its date.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 35
• A more simplistic way of expressing the
distinction is to say that payments made under an
ordinary annuity occur at the end of the period
• while payments made under an annuity due
occur at the beginning of the period.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 36
Calculating the Value of an Annuity Due
An annuity due is calculated in reference to an
ordinary annuity.
1st calculate either the present value (PV) or
future value (FV) of an ordinary annuity,
multiply the result by a factor of (1 + i) as
shown below…
Annuity Due = Annuity Ordinary x (1 + i)
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 37
• Present Value of an Annuity
calculate the PV of an ordinary annuity of 50 per year over 3 years at 7% as...
...
• and the present value of an annuity due under the same terms is calculated
as...
..
• the PV of the annuity due is greater than the PV of the ordinary annuity; by
9.18.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 38
• Future Value of an Annuity
calculate the FV of an ordinary annuity of 25 per year
over 3 years at 9% as...
• future value of an annuity due under the same terms is
calculated as...
•
...and again the FV of the annuity due is greater than
the FV of the ordinary annuity; by 7.38.

• Example :
• 1. Calculate the present value on Jan 1, 2015 of an annuity of
5,000 paid at the end of each month of the calendar year 2015.
The annual interest rate is 12%.
• Solution
We have,
Periodic Payment R = 5,000
Number of Periods n = 12
Interest Rate i = 12%/12 = 1%
Present Value
PV = 5000 × (1(1+1%)^(12))/1%
= 5000 × (11.01^12)/1%
= 5000 × (10.88745)/1%
= 5000 × 0.11255/1%
= 5000 × 11.255
= 56,275.40
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 40
• A certain amount was invested on Jan 1, 2015 such that it generated a
periodic payment of 10,000 at the beginning of each month of the
calendar year 2015. The interest rate on the investment was 13.2%.
Calculate the original investment and the interest earned.
• Solution
Periodic Payment R = 10,000
Number of Periods n = 12
Interest Rate i = 13.2%/12 = 1.1%
Original Investment = PV of annuity due on Jan 1, 2015
= 10,000 × (1(1+1.1%)^(12))/1.1% × (1+1.1%)
= 10,000 × (11.011^12)/0.011 × 1.011
= 10,000 × (10.876973)/0.011 × 1.011
= 10,000 × 0.123027/0.011 × 1.011
= 10,000 × 11.184289 × 1.011
= 1,13,073.20
Interest Earned = 10,000 × 12 − 1,13,073.20
•
= 1,20,000 – 1,13,073.20 = 6926.80

SUMMARY OF ANNUITIES FORMULAS
• FUTURE VALUE OF INVESTMENT AT THE END OF PERIOD,
FVOA (Future Value of Ordinary Annuity) is applied.
• FVOA = (C ÷ R) x { (1 + R)^T  1 }
• FUTURE VALUE OF INVESTMENT AT THE BEGINNING OF
PERIOD, FVAD (Future Value of Annuity Due) is applied.
– FVAD = (C ÷ R) x { (1 + R)^T  1 } x (1 + R)
• PRESENT VALUE OF INVESTMENT AT THE END OF PERIOD,
PVOA (Present Value of Ordinary Annuity) is applied.
• PVOA = (C ÷ R) x { (1 + R)^T  1 } ÷ (1 + R)^T
• PRESENT VALUE OF INVESTMENT AT THE BEGINNING OF
PERIOD, PVAD (Present Value of Annuity Due) is applied.

Present Value
Present value describes how much a future sum of money is
worth today.
Three most influential components of present value are :
time,
expected rate of return,
the size of the future cash flow
The formula for present value is:
PV = CF/(1+r)n
Where:
CF = cash flow in future period
r = the periodic rate of return or interest (also called the
discount rate or the required rate of return)
n = number of periods
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 43
Example :
Assume that you would like to put money in an account today to
make sure your child has enough money in 10 years to buy a
car. If you would like to give your child 10,00,000 in 10 years,
and you know you can get 5% interest per year from a savings
account during that time, how much should you put in the
account now?
PV = 10,00,000 / (1+.05)10 = 6,13,913/
Thus, 6,13,913 will be worth 10,00,000 in 10 years if you can
earn 5% each year. In other words, the present value of
10,00,000 in this scenario is 6,13,913.

• Future Value
The value of an asset or cash at a specified date in the future that is equivalent in value to a specified
sum today. It refers to a method of calculating how much the present value (PV) of an asset or
cash will be worth at a specific time in the future. There are two ways to calculate FV:
1) For an asset with simple annual interest: = Original Investment x (1+(interest rate*number of years))
• .2) For an asset with interest compounded annually: = Original Investment x ((1+interest rate)^number
of years)
Example:
1) 10,000 invested for 5 years with simple annual interest of 10% would have a future value of
FV = 10000(1+(0.10*5))
= 10000(1+0.50)
= 10000*1.5
= 15000
2) 10,000 invested for 5 years at 10%, compounded annually has a future value of :
FV = 10000(1+0.10)^5)
= 10000(1.10)^5
= 10000*1.61051
= 16105.10

YTM
• YTM is a annual return which an investors
gets ,if he holds the bonds till maturity .
• In other world it is an internal rate of interest
(IRR) which an investors received on bonds,
which he has purchased in current market
value holds it till maturity
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 52
Assumption at the time of calculation of YTM
• Bond once purchased will be held till maturity
• Cash flow will be received and there will be no default
• All cash flow are immediately reinvested (else where) at the
rate which is equal to the promised Y T M
• Important terms :
• PVIF:Present value interest factor; it represent the discount
value of Rs. One for a period concerned of interest rate
• PVIFA:Present value interest factor of annuity :it represent the
present value of an ordinary annuity for the period concern and
interest rate
• Current Yield = coupon interest/ current market price
• Call option= Right to repay the bond before maturity date
• Put option=holder has right to force the issuer to repay the bond

Theorems for bonds value
Required rate of return is denote with symbol =Kd
1. When Kd= coupon rate result price is = par value
2.When Kd > Coupon rate result value of bond is < par value
3.When Kd<coupon rate value of bond is > par value
4.When Kd >coupon rate discount on bond declines as
maturity comes near
5.When Kd < coupon rate Premium on bonds reduces as
maturity comes near
6.Bond prices is inversely proportional to its yields maturity
7.If there is a deference between YTM and coupon rate of bond ,
the longer the term to maturity ,the greater will be the change in
the price with the change in YTM

• The face value of the bond is Rs. 1,000, coupon rate is
11 per cent, years to maturity is seven years. The
required rate of return is 13 per cent, and then the
present value of the bond is
– 110 x PVIFA (13 per cent, 7) + 1,000 (PVIF 13 per cent, 7)
110(4.423)+1,000 (0.425) = 911.53
• One year from now, when the maturity period will be
six years, the present value of the bond will be
– 110 x PVIFA (13 per cent, 6) + 1,000 (PVIF 13 per cent, 6)
110 (3.998) + 1,000 (0.480) = 919.78
• Similarly, when maturity period is 5, 4, 3, 2, 1 the
Bond value will become 929.87, 940.14, 952.71,
966.48, 982.35, respectively.

Bond Value
• A bond, whose par value is Rs. 1,000, bears a coupon
rate of 12 per cent and has a maturity period of 3 years.
The required rate of return on the bond is 10 per cent.
What is the value of this bond?
• Solution
• Annual interest payable = 1,000 * 12% = 120
Principal repayment at the end of 3 years = Rs. 1,000
The value of the bond
= 120 (PVIFA 10%, 3 yrs) + Rs. 1,000 (PVIF 10%, 3 yrs)
= 120 (2.487)+1,000 (0.751)
= 298.44 + 751
= Rs. 1,049.44

• A bond, whose par value is Rs. 1000, bears a coupon rate
of 12 per cent payable semiannually and has a maturity
period of 3 years. The required rate of return on bond is
10 per cent. What is the value of this bond?
• Solution
• Semiannual interest payable = 1,000 x 12 per cent/2= 60
Principal repayment at the end of 3 years = Rs. 1,000
• The value of the bond
= 60 (PVIFA 10%/2, 6 Period) + Rs. 1,000 (PVIF 10%/2, 6
Period) =
60 (5.0746) + 1,000 (0.746) = 304.48 + 746 = 1,050.48

Problem on YTM
• Consider a Rs. 1,000 par value bond, whose
current market price is Rs. 850/. The bond
carries a coupon rate of 8 per cent and has the
maturity period of nine years. What would be
the rate of return that an investor earns if he
purchases the bond and holds until maturity?
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 59
• Solution
• If kd is the yield to maturity then,
• 850 = 80 (PVIFA kd per cent, 9 yrs) + 1,000 (PVIF kd, 9 yrs)
• To calculate the value of kd, we have to try several values:
• = 80 (PVIFA 12 per cent, 9) + 1,000 (PVIF 12 per cent, 9)
• = 80x 5.328+ 1,000 x (0.361)
• = 426.24 + 361 =787.24
• Since, the above value is less than 850, we have to try with value less than 12
per cent. Let us try with kd =10 per cent
• = 80 (PVIFA 10 per cent, 9) + 1,000 (PVIF 10 per cent, 9) = 80
• x 5.759 + 1.000 * 0.424 = 884.72
• From the above it is clear that kd lies between 10% and 12%. Now we have to
use linear interpolation in the range of 10% and 12%. Using it, we find that kd is
equal to the following:
• (884.72850) / (884.72787.24)
• 34.72 / 97.48 = 10%.+
• .71=10.71%
• Therefore, the yield to maturity is 10.71%
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 60
• For two bonds X and Y having face value of Rs. 1.000, coupon rate of
10 per cent each, years to maturity is three and six years
respectively.
• Market value of bond X at YTM of 10 per cent is
– 100 PVIFA (10 per cent, 3) + 1.000 PVIF (10 per cent, 3) = 1,000
• Market Value of Bond Y at YTM of 10 per cent is
– 100 PVIFA (10 per cent, 6) + 1,000 PVIF (10 per cent, 6) = 1,000
• Now market value of bond X at YTM of 11 per cent is
– 100 PVIFA (11 per cent, 3) + 1,000 PVIF (11 per cent, 3) = 975
• And Market Value of Bond Y at YTM of 11 per cent is
– 100 PVIFA (11 per cent, 6) + 1,000 PVIF (11 per cent, 6) = 958
• Change in price for X on increasing YTM by 1 per cent is (1,000 
975)/l,000 = 2.5 per cent
• Change in price for Y on increasing YTM by 1 per cent is (1,000 
958)/1,000 = 4.2 per cent

• A bond of face value of Rs. 1,000 par value X bond with a coupon
rate of 12 per cent maturity period of six years and YTM of 10 per
cent. The market value of the bond will be Rs. 1,087.
– Consider another identical bond Y but with differing YTM of 20 per cent.
The market value of this bond will be Rs. 734.
• If the YTM increase by 20 per cent, i.e. YTM of bond X rises to 12
per cent (10 x 1.2) and bond Y rises to 24 per cent (i.e., 20 x 1.2)
then the market value of both bonds will change to:
– Bond X: 120 PVIFA (12 per cent, 6) + 1,000 PVIF (12 per cent. 6) =
Rs. 1,000
– Bond Y: 120 PVIFA (24 per cent, 6) + 1,000 PVIF (24 per cent, 6) =
638
– Market value of X bond with a lower YTM decreased by 8 per cent
– whereas in case of Y bond with an higher YTM the decrease is 13
per cent.

DEPRECIATION
• Meaning Depreciation is a reduction in the book
value of all fixed assets excepting land used in
business
• all fixed assets
• all fluctuating assets
• both fixed and current assets
• all assets used in business.
• Need for depreciation
» To know correct profit
» Show correct financial position
» Make provision for replacement of assets
» To ascertain the real cost of production
» To comply with legal requirements
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 94
Causes of Depreciation
• I. Internal Causes
• Wear and tear
• Disuse : When a machine is kept continuously idle, it becomes potentially less useful
• Maintenance: The value of machine deteriorates rapidly because of lack of proper
maintenance.
• Depletion: It refers to the physical deterioration by the exhaustion of natural resources eg.,
mines, quarries, oil wells etc.
• II. External Causes
• Obsolescence: The old asset will become obsolete (useless) due to new inventions, improved
techniques and technological advancement
•.
• Effluxion of time: When assets are exposed to forces of nature, like weather, wind, rain, etc., the
value of such assets may decrease even if they are not put into any use.
• Time Factor: Lease, copyright, patents are acquired for a fixed period of time. On the expiry of the
fixed period of time, the assets cease to exist.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 95
Factors of depreciation
• Original Cost of asset
• Residual value
• Life of an asset
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 96
METHODS OF Calculating DEPRECIATION
• 1. Straight line method or fixed installment method.
• 2. Written down value method or diminishing balance
method
• 3. Annuity method.
• 4. Depreciation Fund method.
• 5. Insurance Policy method.
• 6. Revaluation method.
• 7. Sum of year’s Digit Method
• all assets used in business.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 97
Straight line method or fixed installment method
• Under this method, the same amount of depreciation is charged
every year throughout the life of the asset. The amount and rate
of depreciation is calculated as under
• Amount of depreciation = Total cost –– Scrap value
————————————
• Estimated Life
• Rate of depreciation = Amount of Depreciation
• = ———————————— x 100
• Original Cost
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 98
Illustration
• A company purchased Machinery for Rs.1,00,000. Its installation
costs amounted to Rs.10,000. It’s estimated life is 5 years and the
scrap value is Rs.5,000. Calculate the amount and rate of
depreciation
• Solution:
• Total cost = Purchase Price + Installation Charges
• Rs.1,00,000 + Rs.10,000 = Rs. 1,10,000
• Amount of depreciation = Total cost –– Scrap value
Estimated Life
1,10,000 –– Rs.5,000 = 105000 = 21000
5 5
• Rate of depreciation = Amount of depreciation x 100
• Original cost
• 21000 X 100 = 19.09%
• 110000
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 99
Written Down Value Method or Diminishing Balance
Method or Reducing Balance Method
• Under this method, depreciation is charged at a fixed
percentage each year on the reducing balance (i.e., cost
less depreciation) of asset.
• The amount of depreciation goes on decreasing every
year.
• For example,
• if the asset is purchased for Rs.1,00,000 and
depreciation is to be charged at 10% p.a. on reducing
balance method, then Depreciation for the
• 1st year = 10% on Rs.1,00,000, ie., Rs.10,000
• 2nd year = 10% on Rs.90,000 (Rs.1,00,000 –– Rs.10,000) = Rs. 9,000
• 3rd year = 10% on Rs.81,000 (Rs.90,000  Rs.9,000) = Rs.8,100 and so on.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 100
Annuity Method
• The annuity method considers that the business
besides loosing the original cost of the asset in
terms of depreciation and also looses interest on
the amount used for buying the asset.
• This is based on the assumption that the amount
invested in the asset would have earned in case
the same amount would have been invested in
some other form of investment.
• The annual amount of depreciation is determined
with the help of annuity table. This method is
used to calculate depreciation amount on lease
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 101
Depreciation Fund Method or Sinking Fund Method
• Under this method, funds are made available for the
replacement of asset at the end of its useful life.
• The depreciation remains the same year after year and is
charged to Profit and Loss account every year through the
creation of depreciation fund.
• The amount of annual depreciation is invested in good
securities bearing interest at a specified rate.
• The aggregate amount of interest and annual provision is
invested every year.
• When the asset is completely written off or is to be
replaced, the securities are sold and the amount so realised
by selling securities is used to replace the old asset
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 102
• Q.In sinking fund method of depreciation
accounting
– A fund is created at the beginning to which
depreciation is charged annually.
– Since acquiring an asset results in sunk costs
depreciation of the asset is called so.
• Depreciation charged annually is transferred to a fund
which is invested in growth and income generating
securities to take care of the replacement of the asset.
• None of the above.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 103

5/13/18 S K MOHAN 104
Insurance Policy Method
• According to this method, an Insurance policy is
taken for the amount of the asset to be replaced.
• The amount of the policy is such that it is
sufficient to replace the asset when it is worn out.
• A sum equal to the amount of depreciation is paid
as premium every year.
• The amount goes on accumulating at a certain
rate of interest and is received on maturity.
• The amount so received is used for the purchase
of new asset, replacing the old one.
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 105
Revaluation Method:
• Under this method, the assets like loose tools
are revalued at the end of the accounting
period
• same is compared with the value of the asset
at the beginning of the year.
• The difference is considered as depreciation.

• Machinery worth Rs.82000 is purchased and the
firm spent Rs.8000 on its installation. Its effective
commercial life is estimated as 10 years and scrap
value Rs.10000.What will be written down value at
the end of 3rd year, under straight line method?.
• Solution
• The amount of annual depreciation would be
Rs.8000 p.a.
• == (82000+800010000, divided by 10).
• For 3 years it will be Rs.24000 (8000 x 3).
• The WDV would be Rs.66000 (9000024000).
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 107
• In the previous question, if the method would have been
written down value method, what would be the amount of
depreciation for 3 years and WDV of the machinery?
• Answer—
• For 1st year the amount of depreciation would be Rs.8000,
• for 2nd yearRs.7200 (800008000 x 10%)
• and for 3rd yearRs.6480 (720007200 x 10%).
• The total depreciation for three years would be
• Rs.21680.
• There would be saving of Rs.2320 (2400021680) on account
of change in the method of depreciation. To that extent
profit would increase along with the WDV of the fixed asset.

• = 7600012000 / 8 = Rs.8000 per annum
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 109
• A firm purchased certain machinery on January 01, 2013 for Rs.1 lac. It added
more machinery on July 01, 2013 for Rs.50000. 1/2 of the machinery
purchased on January 01, 2013 was sold for Rs.25000 on Dec 31, 2014. The
rate of depreciation is to be assumed 20%and the annual closing of accounts
as on Dec 31. Find the value of machinery as on Dec 31, 201 4.
• Solution :
• WDV of 1st machine as on Dec 31, 2014 would be Rs.30000 as under:
• Original value = 1,00,000
• 2 years' depreciation @ 20% = 40000
• Hence, WDV = 60,000
• Sale of I /2 of machinery : Rs.25000
• Loss on sale of machinery= 3000025000 = 5000
• Hence WDV = 6000030000= 30000
• WDV of 2nd machinery :
• Original value = 50,000—depreciation of 11/2 year i.e.
• Rs.5000 + 10000 = 15000.
• WDV = 50000 —15000 = 35000
• Total WDV : 30000 + 35000 = 65000
5/13/18 S K MOHAN 110
SUM OF THE YEARS' DIGITS
• To calculate depreciation charges using the sum of the years' digits method, take the expected life of an asset (in
years) count back to one and add the figures together.
• This is a method of calculating depreciation of an asset that assumes a higher depreciation
charge and a greater tax benefit in the early years of an asset's life.
• Illustration
• 10 years useful life = 1 0+ 9 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 Sum of the years = 55
• In the first year, the asset would be depreciated 10/55 in value [the fraction 10/55 is equal to
18.18%]
• the first year,
• Second year 9/55 [ 16.36%]
• 8/55 [ 14.54%] the third year, and so on. Going back to our
• Illustration from the straightline discussion: a Rs. 5,000 computer with a Rs. 200 salvage value
and 3 years useful life would be calculated as follows:
• 3 years useful life = 3 + 2 + 1 Sum of the years = 6
• Taking Rs. 5,000  Rs. 200, we have a depreciable base of Rs. 4,800.
• In the first year, the computer would be depreciated by 3/6, i.e [50%], the second year, by 2/6
[33.33%] and the third and final year by the remaining 1/6 [16.67%].
• This would have translated into depreciation charges of Rs. 2,400 the first year, Rs. 1,599.84 the
second year, and Rs. 800.16 the third year.
• The straight line Illustration would have simply charged Rs. 1,600 each year, distributed evenly
over the three years useful life.

a commodity and like in any other trade the
objective is to make profit while buying or selling a
foreign currency.
• The buying and selling are not effected at the same
rate.
• e.g AD would buy 1USD = Rs. 65.35 and sell at 1
USD = Rs. 65.45 in order to make profit.
• The maxim is ‘Buy Low & Sell High’.
• Where indirect method of quotation is followed, the
maxim would be ‘Buy High and Sell Low’.

Different Rates
Card rates these are buying and selling rates computed by the ADs during the
start of business hours it is used for small transaction for handling of small value
transaction It is a indicative rates .
Notional rate: Weekly average of daily rates for different currencies advised by
FEDAI on every Friday. This is used on liability transaction ( deposit ) {in other
words it is a assumed rate which is used to express the rupee value of Foreign
currency deposit }
. InterBank Rates: / based rate called a twoway quote
one is for purchase and second is for sale
• The first rate is called the BID rate and the second is the Ask
rate
Merchant rate : actual quoted to public /customer based on bases of market
rate
Cross rate if the rate of Foreign currency is given in term of another foreign
currency it is called a cross rate
Fine rate: rate quoted to good customers with thinner spread
REER:Real effective exchange rate used for Basket of currencies
5/13/18 SKMOHAN 152
• a) Cross rate
• If a person wants to remit Euros from India, and as a banker, and for
argument sake, rupees/Euros are not normally quoted and therefore, we
have to first buy dollars against the rupees and the same dollars will be
disposed off overseas to acquire the Euros.
• (b) Chain rule
Calculation of the cross rate is based on a commonsense approach. However,
it can be reduced to a rule known as the chain rule with similar steps.
• (c) Value date
The value date is a date on which the exchange of currencies actually takes
place.
• (v) Premium: When a currency is costlier in forward or say, for a future value
date, it is said to be at a premium. In the case of the direct method of
quotations, the premium is added to both the selling and buying rate.
• (vi) Discount: If currency is cheaper in the forward or for a future value date,
it is said to be at a discount. In the case of a direct quotation, the discount is
(deducted) subtracted from both the rates, i.e. buying and selling rates.

Cross rates:
A cross rate is the currency exchange rate between
two currencies when neither are official currencies of the
country in which the exchange rate quote is given.
Foreign exchange traders use the term to refer
to currency quotes that do not involve the U.S. dollar,
regardless of what country the quote is provided in
In India, the interbank transaction always has USD as
one leg. If we have to arrive at the INR equivalent of any
other currency, we have to apply cross rates. The
calculation involves two stages.
1. USD / INR
2. USD / other Foreign Currency
5/13/18 SKMOHAN 171
How to calculate Cross Rate?:
The math is simple algebra: [a/b] x [b/c] = a/c
Substitute currency pairs for the fractions shown above, and you get,
for instance,
GBP/AUD x AUD/JPY = GBP/JPY.
This is the implied (or theoretical) value of the GBP/JPY, based on
the value of the other two pairs.
The actual value of the GBP/JPY will vary around this implied value,
as the following calculation shows.
Here are Friday's actual closing BID prices for the 3 currency pairs in this example
GBP/AUD = 1.73449,
AUD/JPY = 0.85535
GBP/JPY = 1.48417. Now, let's do the math:
GBP/AUD x AUD/JPY = GBP/JPY
1.73449 x 0.85535 = 1.4836,
which is not exactly the same as the actual market price. Here's why. During market hours (Sunday afternoon
to Friday afternoon, EST), all prices are LIVE, and small departures from the mathematical relationships can
exist momentarily
5/13/18 SKMOHAN 172
• EXAMPLE: Derive the rate for EUR/AUD
• EUR/USD =1.3798/1.3858
• USD/AUD =1.0432/1.0502
• Bid Ask
• The EUR/AUD Bid rate= Multiply the term currency bid by the base
currency
• ask = 1.3798 x 1.0432 = 1.4394
• this is the rate at which the market buys EUR and sells AUD
• The EU/AUD Ask rate=
• Multiply the term currency ask by the base currency bid
• = 1.3858 x 1.0502 = 1.4553
• this is the rate at which the market sells EUR
and buys AUD
• Derive the rate for GBP/EUR
• GBP/USD = 1.9850/1.9950 GBP is base, /USD is terms
• EUR/USD= 1.3460/1.3520 EUR is base, /USD is terms The GBP/EUR
• Bid rate

Example of a Chain Rule (1 )
• All foreign exchange calculations have to be worked with care and
accuracy and several rules have to be kept in mind
• Chain rule is used to attain comparison or ratio between two
quantities which are linked together through another or other
quantities.
• Equation in the form of a chain is derived.
• Per cent and per mille Per 100 units/per 1000 units
• Query: If we have to remit French Francs to France from India how do
we go about it? (We have to arrive at cross rates between FRF and
INR.)
• Mumbai interbank market:
– US $ 1 = Rs. 41.2550/2650
• London Market
– US $ 1 = FRF 6.0500/6.0550
5/13/18 SKMOHAN 184
Chain rule (2)
• At what rate can one buy FRF against rupees?
• How many Rs = FRF 1?
• FRF 6.0500 = US $ 1
• US $ 1 = 41.2650, therefore,
• FRF 6.0500 = US $ 1 = Rs. 41.2650
• Hence, FRF 1 = 41.2650/6.0500
• Or FRF 1 = Rs. 6.8206

Arbitrage
• Arbitrage opportunities available to forex traders are known as the inter
market arbitrage. Forex traders regular make arbitrage profit though
interest rate differential in two countries. This is known as “interest rate
arbitrage”.
• Interest rate arbitrage works like this:
• Spot rate £1 = €1.6140. Interest rate for coming 12 months is 5.5% for
Pound Sterling and 3.75% for Euro.
• Suppose a bank quotes a 3 month forward rate as £1 = €1.5970.
• Now let us see whether there exist an arbitrage opportunity or not.
• For example, a trader borrows £100,000 for 3 months. He has to pay
£101,375 after 3 months. He converts £100,000 to € at the spot rate. He
receives €161400.
• Invests €161400 at 3.75% interest rate for 3 months. He earns € 162913.
He converts euro proceeding to Pound sterling at the 3 month forward
rate of £1 = €1.5970.
• He earns £102,012. He returns £101,375and makes a arbitrage profit of
£636.
