Answer #1

Use below excel formula

**RATE**(**nper**,**pmt**,**pv**,fv,type,guess)

**Nper** is the total number of payment
periods in an annuity.

**Pmt** is the payment made each period
and cannot change over the life of the annuity. Typically, pmt
includes principal and interest but no other fees or taxes. If pmt
is omitted, you must include the fv argument.

**Pv** is the present value — the total
amount that a series of future payments is worth now.

**Fv** is the future value, or a cash
balance you want to attain after the last payment is made. If fv is
omitted, it is assumed to be 0

=RATE(30,130,-920,1000) |

Nper = 30 years

Payment = 13% of 1000 = 130

PV = (1000-80) = 920; since 8% is flotation cost so 8% of 1000 is 80

FV = 1000

Before tax cost will be 14.15%

After tax cost = 14.15% * (1-30%) = 14.15% * 0.7 = **9.92%
