Time value of money

The time value of money is the greater benefit of receiving money now rather than an identical sum later. It is founded on time preference; the time value of money explains why interest is paid or earned: interest, whether it is on a bank deposit or debt, compensates the depositor or lender for the time value of money. It underlies investment. Investors are willing to forgo spending their money now only if they expect a favorable return on their investment in the future, such that the increased value to be available is sufficiently high to offset the preference to have money now; the Talmud recognizes the time value of money. In Tractate Makkos page 3a the Talmud discusses a case where witnesses falsely claimed that the term of a loan was 30 days when it was 10 years; the false witnesses must pay the difference of the value of the loan "in a situation where he would be required to give the money back thirty days... and that same sum in a situation where he would be required to give the money back 10 years...

The difference is the sum. The notion was described by Martín de Azpilcueta of the School of Salamanca. Time value of money problems involve the net value of cash flows at different points in time. In a typical case, the variables might be: a balance, a periodic rate of interest, the number of periods, a series of cash flows. More the cash flows may not be periodic but may be specified individually. Any of these variables may be the independent variable in a given problem. For example, one may know that: the interest is 0.5% per period. The unknown variable may be the monthly payment. For example, £ 100 invested; that is, £100 invested for one year at 5% interest has a future value of £105 under the assumption that inflation would be zero percent. This principle allows for the valuation of a stream of income in the future, in such a way that annual incomes are discounted and added together, thus providing a lump-sum "present value" of the entire income stream. For example, the future value sum F V to be received in one year is discounted at the rate of interest r to give the present value sum P V: P V = F V Some standard calculations based on the time value of money are: Present value: The current worth of a future sum of money or stream of cash flows, given a specified rate of return.

Future cash flows are "discounted" at the discount rate. Determining the appropriate discount rate is the key to valuing future cash flows properly, whether they be earnings or obligations. Present value of an annuity: An annuity is a series of equal payments or receipts that occur at evenly spaced intervals. Leases and rental payments are examples; the payments or receipts occur at the end of each period for an ordinary annuity while they occur at the beginning of each period for an annuity due. Present value of a perpetuity is an constant stream of identical cash flows. Future value: The value of an asset or cash at a specified date in the future, based on the value of that asset in the present. Future value of an annuity: The future value of a stream of payments, assuming the payments are invested at a given rate of interest. There are several basic equations; the solutions may be found using a financial calculator or a spreadsheet. The formulas are programmed into several spreadsheet functions.

For any of the equations below, the formula may be rearranged to determine one of the other unknowns. In the case of the standard annuity formula, there is no closed-form algebraic solution for the interest rate; these equations are combined for particular uses. For example, bonds can be priced using these equations. A typical coupon bond is composed of two types of payments: a stream of coupon payments similar to an annuity, a lump-sum return of capital at the end of the bond's maturity—that is, a future payment; the two formulas can be combined to determine the present value of the bond. An important note is. For an annuity that makes one payment per year, i will be the annual interest rate. F
