Solution:

4.2.1). IRR calculation:

The formula for IRR is as follows:

"\u2211\\frac{Cashflow}{(1 + IRR)^{t} } - Initial \\;investment = 0"

"\\frac{81,000}{1 + IRR^{1} } + \\frac{81,000}{1 + IRR^{2} } + \\frac{81,000}{1 + IRR^{3} } + \\frac{81,000}{1 + IRR^{4} } + \\frac{81,000}{1 + IRR^{5} } - 260,000 = 0"

Use trial and error till you find the rate that will make NPV = 0

Using excel, IRR = "16.86 \\%"

IRR = "16.86 \\%"

4.2.2). Demat Limited should invest in the project since the IRR value is greater than the company’s cost of capital, which means the project will bring higher returns.
