a) The firm cost of capital before taxes.
Given: The borrowed money is $125000 at $8\mathrm{%}$ rate. The investment by the partners is$75000.
The required rate of return by the partner is $12\mathrm{%}$.
b) The firm cost of capital after tax.

Liyana Mansell

a) Calculation:
Write the equation to calculate the cost of the capital (COC).
$COC=\left[\left(\frac{Equity}{Equity+Debt}\right)×ROE\right]+\left[\left(\frac{Debt}{Equity+Debt}\right)×ROD×\left(1-t\right)\right]$ .....(I)
Here, the amount that the partner has invested is Equity, the amount that firm has borrowed is Debt, the return on equity is ROE, return on debt is ROD, and tax rate is t.
Substitute $75000 for Equity,$125000 for Debt, $12\mathrm{%}$ for ROE, $8\mathrm{%}$ for ROD, and $0\mathrm{%}$ for t in Equation (I).
$COC=\left[\left(\frac{\mathrm{}75000}{\mathrm{}75000+\mathrm{}125000}\right)×0.12\right]+\left[\left(\frac{\mathrm{}125000}{\mathrm{}75000+\mathrm{}125000}\right)×0.08×\left(1-0\right)\right]$
$=0.045+0.05$
$=0.095$
$=9.5\mathrm{%}$
Conclusion:
Therefore, the firms cost of capital before tax is $9.5\mathrm{%}$,
b) Calculation:
Substitute $75000 for Equity,$125000 for Debt, $12\mathrm{%}$ for ROE, $8\mathrm{%}$ for ROD, and $30\mathrm{%}$ for t in Equation (I).
$COC=\left[\left(\frac{\mathrm{}75000}{\mathrm{}75000+\mathrm{}125000}\right)×0.12\right]+\left[\left(\frac{\mathrm{}125000}{\mathrm{}75000+\mathrm{}125000}\right)×0.08×\left(1-0.30\right)\right]$
$=0.045+0.035$
$=0.08$
$=8\mathrm{%}$
Conclusion:
Therefore, the firms cost of capital after tax is, $8\mathrm{%}$.
