# Net Present Value Calculator

## Calculator Use

Calculate the net present value (NPV) of a series of future cash flows. More specifically, you can calculate the
**present value of uneven cash flows** (or even cash flows). See
Present Value Cash Flows Calculator for related formulas and calculations.

- Interest Rate (discount rate per period)
- This is your expected rate of return on the cash flows for the length of one period.
- Compounding
- If there is compounding, this is number of times compounding will occur during a period. 1 is the minimum.
- Cash Flows at Period Beginning or End
- Choose if cash flows occur at the beginning of each period (like an annuity due) or at the end of each period (like an ordinary annuity)
- Periods
- This is the frequency of the corresponding cash flow. These are often the equivalent time period of months or years but a period can be any repeating time unit that payments are made.
- Cash Flows
- The cash flow (payment or receipt) made for a given period or set of periods.
- Line 0 (time 0) 1 Period @ ?
- This is your original investment, if any, at time 0 of your project.

Calculating the PV for each cash flow in each period you can produce the following table and sum up the individual cash flows to get your final answer.
