Depreciation by two methods; sale of fixed asset

New tire retreading equipment, acquired at a cost of $110,000 on September 1 of Year 1 (beginning of the fiscal year), has an estimated useful life of four years and an estimated residual value of $7,500. The manager requested information regarding the effect of alternative methods on the amount of depreciation expense each year. On the basis of the data presented to the manager, the double-declining-balance method was selected.

On September 6 of Year 4, the equipment was sold for $18,000.

1.    Determine the annual depreciation expense for each of the estimated four years of use, the accumulated depreciation at the end of earn year, and the book value of the equipment at the end of each year by (a) the straight-line method and (b) the double-declining-balance method. The following columnar headings are suggested for earn schedule:

Year Depreciation Expense Accumulated Depreciation, End of Year Book Value, End of Year

2.    Journalize the entry to record the sale.

3.    Journalize the entry to record the sale, assuming that the equipment sold for $10,500 instead of $l8,000.

To determine

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. The formula to calculate the depreciation cost of the asset using the residual value is shown as below:

Depreciation = (Cost of the assetResidual value)Estimated useful life of the asset

To determine: the annual depreciation expense, accumulated depreciation, and the book value for each of the estimated four years of use by the straight-line method.

Explanation

Determine the annual depreciation expense, accumulated depreciation, and the book value by straight-line method.

Year 3 $25,625 $76,875 $33,125
Year 4 $25,625 $102,500 $7,500

Table (1)

Working notes:

Cost of the equipment= $110,000

Estimated residual value =$7,500

Estimated Useful Life =4 years
