redeemable preference shares and debt instruments

What is the easy way to remember  when to calculate the present value? For example

The loan note has a coupon rate of 5% and an effective interest rate of 7%. Interest is receivable annually in arrears. The company has the intention of holding the loan note to receive the contractual cash flows.
