## How to Calculate EAA - Definition, Formula and Example

##### Definition

The equivalent annual annuity (EAA) approach evaluates the constant annual cash flow produced by a project over its lifetime .EAA is used in capital budgeting to find the net present value of an investment. The present value of the constant annual cash flow is equal to the project's net present value.

#### Formula :

C = r (NPV) / 1 - (1 + r)-n
###### where,
C denotes Equivalent Annuity Cash Flow, NPV denotes Net Present Value, r denotes Rate Per Period, n denotes Number of Periods.
##### Example :
###### Given,
 Net Present Value(NPV) = 100,000 Rate Per Period(r) = 8 % = 0.08 Number of periods(n) = 4 years
##### To find,

Equivalent Annuity Cash Flow(C)

##### Solution:

Substitute the values of NPV, r and n in the formula, C = 0.08 *(100,000) / (1 - (1 + 0.08)-4) C = 8000 / (1 - (1 + 0.08)-4) C = 30,192.08
