Present Value of Annuity (PVA) represents the current equivalent amount of future payments of the same amount for a specific interest rate and a number of periods the interest is compounding. Present Value can be calculated for an ordinary annuity (paid at the end of period) or for an annuity due (paid at the beginning of period).

Present Value of Ordinary Annuity formula (PVOA) is: $Present Value of Ordinary Annuity formula$

Present Value of Annuity Due formula (PVAD) is: $Present Value of Annuity Due formula$

Important notes:

• The time frame (year, month, quarter etc.) must be the same for both, 'Interest Rate' and 'Number of Time Periods';
• This model assumes that the Interest Rates stay the same the entire period;
• This model assumes that Payments are of the same amount the entire period;
• This model uses compound interest method.

This Present Value of Annuity calculator allows you to accomplish the following:

• Determine the current equivalent amount of a future payments of the same amount given a specific interest rate and a number of periods the interest is compounding;
• Compare multiple scenarios, by showing each case in the results section.

### Present Value of Annuity Examples

Example 1:

You invest 10,000.00 for 25 years at the end of each year. How much the investment is worth today at 5.25% annual interest rate compounded annually?

Payment Amount = 10,000

Interest Rate Per Period = 5.25%

Number of Time Periods = 25

Annuity Type: Ordinary (End)

If you were to continually invest 10,000.00 at the end of every year, at a rate of 5.25 % per year, you would receive 494,055.11 after 25 years, which is worth 137,474.70 today.

Example 2:

You invest 10,000.00 for 25 years at the beginning of each year. How much the investment is worth today at 5.25% annual interest rate compounded annually?

Payment Amount = 10,000

Interest Rate Per Period = 5.25%

Number of Time Periods = 25

Annuity Type: Due (Beginning)

If you were to continually invest 10,000.00 at the beginning of every year, at a rate of 5.25 % per year, you would receive 519,993.00 after 25 years, which is worth 144,692.12 today.

Example 3:

You invest 2,500.00 for 25 years at the end of each quarter. How much the investment is worth today at 5.24% annual interest rate compounded quarterly?

Payment Amount = 2,500

Interest Rate Per Period = 5.24% / 4 = 1.31%

Number of Time Periods = 25 * 4 = 100

Annuity Type: Ordinary (End)
