The Payback Period shows how long it takes for a business to recoup its investment. This type of analysis allows firms to compare alternative investment opportunities and decide on a project that returns its investment in the shortest time – if that criteria is important to them.
In essence, the payback period is used very similarly to a Breakeven Analysis but instead of the number of units to cover fixed costs, it considers the amount of time required to return the investment.
