Download WSO's free WACC Calculator model template below! This template allows you to calculate WACC based on capital structure, cost of equity, cost of debt and tax rate.

According to the WSO Dictionary,

"WACC, or Weighted Average Cost of Capital, is a financial metric used to measure the cost of capital to a firm. It is most usually used to provide a discount rate for a financed project, because the cost of financing the capital is a fairly logical price tag to put on the investment. WACC is used to determine the discount rate used in a DCF valuation model."

A screenshot below shows a sneak peak of the template.
