The capital asset pricing model is used for calculating the value of the cost of equity. The formula for the calculation cost of equity using CAPM is:

Where:

Rf = the risk-free rate

β = equity beta

Rm = annual return of the market

Interest payments are tax-deductible. The cost of debt needs to be multiplied by (1 – tax rate), for the calculations for the weighted average cost of capital.

Where:

Re= cost of equity

Rf = the risk−free rate

β = equity beta

Rm = annual return of the market

Cost of debt = cost of debt(1−tax rate)

cost of debt

cost of debt

Weighted average cost of capital= cost of equity + cost of debt

Weighted average cost of capital
