Other factors to be considered include: A. Are there any improvements in the quality of work turned out by the new machine? B. What effect does the federal income tax have on the decision? C. What opportunities are available for the use of the $44,100 of funds ($57,000 less $12,900 proceeds from the old machine) that are required to purchase the new machine? After considering such factors as those listed above, the net cost reduction anticipated over the six-year period may not be sufficient to justify the replacement. For example, if there is an opportunity to invest the $44,100 of additional funds required for the replacement in a project that earns a return of 3% (assumed for illustration), the amount of the return over the six-year period would be $7,938 ($44,100 × 3% × 6). However, this is less than the differential income determined in part (1), suggesting the proposal to replace is still preferred.
