To determine

Amortization: It is the process of allocating the value of an intangible asset over its definite useful life such as patent, copyright, and trademark.

Impairment of Goodwill: It is a situation that arises when the carrying value of the goodwill listed on the acquired company’s balance sheet, exceeds its fair market value.

Depletion: It refers to the process of proportionately distributing the cost of the extracting natural resources such as coal, mines, and petroleum from the earth to the number of units extracted. The following is the formula to calculate the depletion expense:

Depletion Cost per Unit = Cost of the asset  Residual valueEstimated Number of Units

Depletion Expense=(Depletion Cost per Unit × Number of units Extracted and Sold)

To determine: the amount of the amortization, depletion expense or impairment for the current year.

Explanation of Solution

Determine the amount of the depletion expense for the current year.

Depletion rate =$0.32 per board foot (1)

Number of board feet of timber cut and sold =1,100,000 board feet

Depletion Expense = (Depletion rate×Number of timberscut and sold)=$0.32per boardfoot×1,100,000boardfeet=$352,000

The amount of the depletion expense for the current year for timber rights is $352,000.

Working note:

Determine the depletion rate.

Cost of the timber rights = $1,600,000

Estimated stand of timber = 5,000,000 board feet

Depletion Rate = Cost of the asset  Residual valueEstimated Number of units=$1,600,000$05,000,000boardfeet=$0
