Total taxable cash flow = (48100 + 68214 + 90040 + 113234) = $319588

Total depreciation = $215000

Total accounting profit = 319588 - 215000 = $104588

Average annual accounting profit = 104588/4 = $26147

Average investment = 215000/2 = $107500

Return on capital employed = 100 × 26147/107500 = 24·3%

ROCE of 24·3% is somewhat less than the target ROCE of 25% indicating that buying the machine isn't acceptable with respect to this criterion. though evaluation using the net present value approach is preferred for investment advice.
