 Accounting Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

Company purchased equipment in January 1,2007 at cost of 600,000. The equipment is expected to have a service life of 10 years or 50 000 hours and a residual value of 40 000. During 2007, the equipment was operated for 4000 hours and during 2008 it was operated for 7000 hours.

Straight line; hours run/activity method; double declining; sum of the year digits

1. Straight line    =   56,000

2.  Hours run/activity method   =  i)  2007  =  44,800      ii)  2008    =  78,400

3. Double declining  =  112,000

4. Sum of the year digits  =  i)   2007  =  101,818.18      ii)  2008   =  91,636.36

Is the straight line = 56,000 equal for both 2007 and 2008

Mar 25th, 2015

Yes exactly. Because under straight line method the depreciation is constant for all the years.

May you please write formula how you got those results

Mar 25th, 2015

I) (Cost of the asset  - Residual value) / Life time of the Asset

2)  (Cost of the asset  - Residual value) / Working Hours time of the Asset

3) Depreciation under Straight line  X 2

4) SYD Depreciation =Depreciable Base ×Remaining Useful LifeSum of the Years' Digits
