Webinar Materials

In July 2019 following on from the response and feedback from my June webinar, I covered more financial functions. These are more related to comparing and analysing cash flows. I have also included a couple of requested schedules.

This session will cover the following functions

  • NPV – Net Present Value of regular cashflows (learn to trick to using it correctly)
  • XNPV – Net Present Value of irregular cashflows
  • IRR – Internal Rate of Return of regular periodic cashflows
  • XIRR – Internal Rate of Return of irregular periodic cashflows
  • Discounted Payback period schedule
  • Flexible Loan schedule – handles lump sum payments

As with all my sessions, I will throw in a few other shortcuts along the way.

Handling Exceptions in Excel

Two ways to consider

When developing budgets and financial models you may need the same rate/value (say debtor days) for 10 months of the year but need to adjust it for 2 months. It is usually December and January as they tend to be a little different due to the Christmas / New Year period. Here’s a couple of ways to handle exceptions in Excel.
