There are several ways to calculate the time value of money. Depending on the data available, results can be obtained by using the compound interest formula or the Consumer Price Index (CPI) formula.
Given that money changes in time as a result of an inflation rate that acts as a compound interest, the following formula can be used: FV = PV (1 + i)n, where:
In this case, the future value represents the final amount obtained after applying the inflation rate to our initial value. In other words, it indicates how much are zł100 worth today. There are 21 years between 1997 and 2018 and the average inflation rate has been 3.4012%. Therefore, we can resolve the formula like this:
FV = PV (1 + i)n = zł100 * (1 + 0.03)21 = zł206.26
When the CPI for both start and end years is known, the following formula can be used:
In this case, the CPI in 1997 was 49.72 and the CPI today is 103.79. Therefore,
