### What is N in NPV formula?

The NPV formula. It’s important to understand exactly how the NPV formula works in Excel and the math behind it. NPV = F / [ (1 + r)^n ] where, PV = Present Value, F = Future payment (cash flow), r = Discount rate, n = the number of periods in the future is based on future cash flows.

**What is additivity in accounting?**

The Value Additivity Principle is a financial principle that says that the total value of a group of assets is equal to the total value of all individual assets included in the group.

When comparing similar investments, a higher NPV is better than a lower one. When comparing investments of different amounts or over different periods, the size of the NPV is less important since NPV is expressed as a dollar amount and the more you invest or the longer, the higher the NPV is likely to be.

## What is a good NPV and IRR?

If a discount rate is not known, or cannot be applied to a specific project for whatever reason, the IRR is of limited value. In cases like this, the NPV method is superior. If a project’s NPV is above zero, then it’s considered to be financially worthwhile.

### What does a low NPV mean?

So a negative or zero NPV does not indicate “no value.” Rather, a zero NPV means that the investment earns a rate of return equal to the discount rate. If you discount the cash flows using a 6% real rate and produce a $0 NPV, then the analysis indicates your investment would earn a 6% real rate of return.

**Should NPV be high or low?**
