Exercise 25-1 Payback period computation; uneven cash flows LO P1

Beyer Company is considering the purchase of an asset for $360,000. It is expected to produce the following net cash flows. The cash flows occur evenly throughout each year.


 Year 1Year 2Year 3Year 4Year 5Total
  Net cash flows $80,000  $50,000  $70,000  $250,000  $13,000  $463,000 



Compute the payback period for this investment. (Cumulative net cash outflows must be entered with a minus sign. Round your answers to 2 decimal places.)


A machine can be purchased for $210,000 and used for 5 years, yielding the following net incomes. In projecting net incomes, double-declining balance depreciation is applied, using a 5-year life and a zero salvage value.


 Year 1Year 2Year 3Year 4Year 5
  Net incomes $13,000  $28,000  $53,000  $40,500  $103,000 



Compute the machine’s payback period (ignore taxes). (Round your intermediate calculations to 3 decimal places and payback period answer to 3 decimal places.)


Exercise 25-3 Payback period computation; even cash flows LO P1

Compute the payback period for each of these two separate investments:



a.A new operating system for an existing machine is expected to cost $240,000 and have a useful life of four years. The system yields an incremental after-tax income of $69,230 each year after deducting its straight-line depreciation. The predicted salvage value of the system is $9,000.
b.A machine costs $180,000, has a $13,000 salvage value, is expected to last seven years, and will generate an after-tax income of $38,000 per year after straight-line depreciation.
