# Accounting rate of return

Evaluate the performance of your investments and make informed financial decisions with the help of our ARR Calculator.

The Accounting Rate of Return (ARR), also referred to as the Average Rate of Return, measures the profitability of an investment by calculating the percentage of profit generated over a specified period. This period can be customized according to individual needs. For instance, if the total return (revenue – expenses, including depreciation) over a span of n years amounts to $70 from an initial investment of $100, the ARR would be 70%. The ARR formula is derived by subtracting the incremental expenses (including depreciation) from the incremental revenue and dividing it by the initial investment.

- Depreciation = (Initial Investment – Final Investment) / No. of Years
- Profit = (Incremental Revenue – Incremental Expenses) / Depreciation
- ARR = Profit / Initial Investment
