Time Value of money

You only have to consider the time value of money when the CFs go beyond one year.



When interest is compounded more than once a year:
1. multiply the number of periods by the number of times interest is compounded
to get the total number of interest periods
2. Divide the interest by the number of times interest is compounded annually to get the appropriate int rate for each int period.

Loan origination Costs

Incurred by the lender (bank)

Loan origination Fees (points)

Both the lender and the borrower defer and recognize the fee over the life of the loan, 1 point = 1% of the principal loan amount.

Lender - subtract from loan
Borrower - subtract from loan

Borrowing costs - IFRS

Must be capitalized if they meet certain criteria; if they are related to the acquisition, construction, or production of a qualifying asset - an asset that takes a substantial period of time to get ready for its intended use.
Borrowing costs that do not meet the rules for capitalization are expensed in the current period.
