Problem based on purchase of a machine


Harper Company is contemplating the purchase of a machine capable of performing certain operations that are now performed manually.

The machine will cost $5,000, and it will last for five years.

At the end of the five-year period, the machine will have a zero scrap value. Use of the machine will reduce labor costs by $1,800 per year.

Harper Company requires a minimum pretax return of 20% on all investment projects?

Should the machine be purchased? (Use the Net Present Value calculation in your analysis)
