Management Accounting Assignment




Question 1

Accounting rate of return formula is average annual profits divided by average investment by the company (Al-Mutairi, Naser & Saeid, 2018).

 Average annual profits= (£15,000+£25,000+£25,000+£20,000+£30,000)/5=£23,000

Average Investment= (£115,000+£25,000)/2=£70,000

 Accounting rate of return=£23,000/£70,000=32.86%

Question 2


Payback period is the duration taken to recover initial funds used in an investment.  The shorter the payback period the better (Al-Mutairi, Naser & Saeid, 2018). The potential investment with the shorter payback period should therefore be pursued in this case.


The disadvantages of using payback period approach   are that it does not take into account the time value of money, does not take into account cash flows beyond the payback period and is unrealistic as it ignores normal business scenarios (Gul, Gul & Haider, 2018).

Question 3


Investment X appear more lucrative as it generates more cash flows than Investment Y over the lifetime of the investments. 






Investment X

Discount factor -8%

Net present value

Cash flow Year 1: £400,000



Cash flow Year 2: £500,000



Cash flow Year 3: £500,000



Cash flow Year 4: £600,000



Cash flow Year 5: £600,000






Net Present Value of X =£2,045,500-£1,200,000=£845,500


Investment Y

Discount factor-8%

Net present value

Cash flow Year 1: £900,000



Cash flow Year 2: £400,000



Cash flow Year 3: £500,000



Cash flow Year 4: £600,000






Net Present Value of X =£2,014,200-£1,100,000=£914,200



The business should pursue Investment Y because as it returns a higher net present value of £914,200 as compared to investment X whose net present value is £845,500

Question 4

It implies that the internal rate of return is higher than 8% as the net present value should be equal to zero (Onuorah,2019).
