    [fre] De la solution d'un problème concret (projet d'investissement soumis à une fiscalité spécifique) à une av ncée théorique (unicité des méthodes de calcul de Valeurs actuelles) La première partie de cet article est consacrée à un problème concret auquel peut être confrontée une entreprise dont les projets sont soumis à des fiscalités diverses (comme c'est couramment le cas dans l'industrie pétrolière) : comment évaluer un projet en partie financé par emprunt et soumis à un taux d'imposition différent de celui employé pour déterminer le taux d'actualisation de l'entreprise ? De façon inattendue, résoudre ce problème a permis de proposer une formulation unique des différentes méthodes traditionnelles (globale, fonds propres, Arditti-Levy, Valeur actuelle ajustée de Myers) de calcul de Valeurs actuelles nettes, ainsi qu'une généralisation de la formule de Modigliani et Miller à un projet de durée quelconque. [eng] From the solution of a real-life problem (NPV calculations in the presence of various tax rates) -an advance in theory (uniqueness of conventional capital budgeting methods) The starting point of this article deals with an applied problem of capital budgeting that a firm whose projects are subject to various tax rates (as is often the case in the oil industry) may encounter: how to value a project partly financed by borrowing and subject to a different tax rate from the one used to determine the discount rate of the firm? Surprisingly enough, answering this question led us to develop a unique formulation of the different conventional investment decision methods (standard WACC, Arditti-Levy, Equity Residual, Myers' APV). Moreover, we generalize the Modigliani-Miller relationship to the case of a project of any duration.
