2.1 So accounting rate of return is the average profit divided by the average investment. Average profit will be the sum of the cashflows less the depreciation (assume no profit on disposal) divided by the number of years. Average investment will be the average of the initial investment and the scrap value.
2.2. Essentially whether or not the ARR is greater or less than the target rate of return.
2.3 Just divide the cost by the annual cash flow (it's the same in all years) to calculate how many years it takes to get the cash back - if it's more than 4 years that's too long.
2.4 If you have a financial calculator or excel there's a function for this. It's the sum of the cash flows discounted at the cost of capital of 20%. If it is greater than zero the project is profitable taking into account the time value of money.
