Enter the cash flows of up to 5 different time periods along with the average return per period to calculate the present value of uneven cash flows.

## Uneven Cash Flow Formula

The following equation is used to calculate the present value of uneven cash flows.

PV = CF0 / (1+r)^0 + CF1/(1-r)^1 + ….CFn/(1+r)^n

- Where PV is the present value
- CF0 – CFn is the cash flows from periods 0 to n.
- r is the interest/return rate
- n is the number of periods

## Uneven Cash Flow Definition

Uneven cash flow is typically used to describe the present value of a varying cash flow over a certain number of periods.

## Uneven Cash Flow Example

How to calculate the present value of uneven cash flow?

**First, determine the cash flows.**Calculate or measure the cash flows of each individual period.

**Next, determine the number of periods and interest rate.**Determine the interest rate per period and the number of periods.

**Finally, calculate the present value.**Calculate the PV of the uneven cash flows using the equations above.
