To determine

The Cost of the fixed asset represents the capability of assistance an asset can give. Except for Land, other assets’ potential declines over the useful life as much as an asset is utilized in the operations of the company.

When the drop in an assets’ service efficiency is corresponding to the usage of the asset and such asset’s usage can be measured then depreciation expense can be computed using the units-of-production depreciation method.

To calculate:

To determine depreciation using Units-of-Production Method.


Depreciation cost per unit = (Cost- Residual Value)/Expected Usage of the Asset

Units-of-production Expense = Depreciation Cost per unit *Actual Usage of the Asset

Depreciation cost per unit

= ($45000-$3000)/160000 miles

=0.2625 per mile

Depreciation for 2019

= 0.2625*40000 miles


Depreciation for 2020
