Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Capitalized cost = $120,000

The interest amounts are expensed and not added to capital value of fixed asset.

Hence depreciation will be provided on 120,000

The amount of depreciation per year = 120,000/20 = $6,000

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
