Current Value of Future Financial Data


Ensuring Accuracy in Reflecting Current Value of Future Financial Data

Question: How does your output ensure accuracy in reflecting the current value of future financial data?

Answer: Our output employs a crucial feature: adjusting future values to present-day dollars. This process involves applying the inflation rate, defaulted to 2% and configurable in the "Advanced Settings," to discount the ending values of each year's financial data back to today's dollars. By doing so, we ensure that the figures accurately account for changes in purchasing power over time. This adjustment means that the value of income in future years is recalibrated to reflect its worth in today's terms, considering the erosion of purchasing power due to inflation. Consequently, the starting value for each subsequent year in the detailed financial ledger is reduced by 2%, mirroring the loss in purchasing power and offering a realistic depiction of future finances.
