Initial Cost of Investment = 50000

Yearly Depreciation = 50000/5 = 10000

Since Profit before Tax is given in the question, it is assumed that depreciation has already been deducted , therefore depreciation is to be added back for calculating cash flows Payback Period - 3 + 4250/16750 = 3.25 Years

NPV = Sum of discounted Cash flows - initial investment

= 62407- 50000 = 12407

Average Rate of return can be calculated as follows = Sum of net Cash flows after tax = 83750

Net benefit in 5 years = 83750 - 50000 = 33750

Yearly benefit = 6750

So, ARR = 6750/50000 = 13.50%
