Inflation calculator

Inflation! You’ve heard the word, but you might not know what it actually means. Simply put, inflation is an increase in the price of goods and services and a decrease in how much your money can buy. Just think about what R300 bought you last year compared to today.

To see inflation in action enter an amount of money, set the annual inflation rate and the number of years. The calculator will work out the future value of your money. For example, if you have R100 today, that same amount will only be able to buy R78.35 worth of goods and services in 5 years' time at an annual inflation rate of 5%.
