Equipment acquired at a cost of \$105,000 has an estimated residual value of \$12,000 and an estimated useful life of 10 years. It was placed into service on May 1 of the current fiscal year, which ends on December 31. Determine the depreciation for the current fiscal year and for the following fiscal year by (a) the straight-line method and (b) the double-declining-balance method.

Step 1

Straight-line Depreciation:

Under the straight-line method of depreciation, the same amount of depreciation is allocated every year over the estimated useful life of an asset.

Double-declining-balance method:

It is an accelerated method of depreciation under which the depreciation declines in each successive year until the value of asset becomes zero. Under this method, the book value (original cost less accumulated depreciation) of the long-term asset is decreased by a fixed rate. It is double the rate of the straight-line depreciation.

Step 2

Requirement a:

Compute the amount of depreciation by the straight-line method for the current fiscal year and for the following fiscal year.
