Step 1

Depreciation refers to the amount of permanent loss in the value of an asset. It is reduction in the value of an asset which can be due to natural calamity, wear n tear, handling issues.

Under straight-line depreciation method, the rate of depreciation remains same in each year.

Under double-declining-balance method, the depreciation is charged on the book value at double the rate of depreciation calculated under straight-line method.

Step 2

Cost of tractor: \$85,000

Useful life: 10 years

Salvage value: \$0

a)

Depreciation per annum is calculated as follows: help_outlineImage Transcriptionclosecost - salvage value Depreciation per annum = useful life \$85, 000 – \$0 10 \$85,000 10 = \$8,500 fullscreen
Step 3

Depreciation under straight-line method remains same every year. Therefore, depreciation for two years will be \$8,500 ... help_outlineImage TranscriptioncloseRate of depriciation = (100% / useful life)x 2 = (100% /10)×2 =10%× 2 = 20% fullscreen
