E11-2(Depreciation–Conceptual Understanding) Rembrandt Company acquired a plant asset at the beginning of Year 1. The asset has an estimated service life of 5 years. An employee has prepared depreciation schedules for this asset using three different methods to compare the results of using one method with the results of using other methods. You are to assume that he following schedules have been correctly prepared for this asset using the (1)the straight-line method, (2)the sum-of-the-years’ method and (3)the double-declining method.

  5              9,000                          3,000                                        1,480

Total         45,000                        45,000                                      45,000


(a)What is the cost of the asset being depreciated?

(b)What amount, if any, was used in the depreciation calculations for the salvage value for this asset?

(c)Which method will produce the highest charge to income Year 1?

(d)Which method will produce the highest charge to income Year 4?

(e)Which method will produce the highest book value for the asset at the end of Year 3?

(f)If the asset is sold at the end of Year 3, which method would yield the highest gain (or the lowest loss) on disposal of the asset? 

E11-6 (Depreciation Computations–Five, Methods, Partial Periods) Muggsy Bogues Company purchased equipment for $212,000 on October 1, 2014. It is estimated that the equipment will have a useful life of 8 years and a salvage value of $12,000. Estimated production is $40,000 units and estimated working hours are 20,000. During 2014, Bogues uses the equipment for 525 hours and the equipment produces 1,000units.


Compute depreciation expense under each of the following methods, Bogues is on a calendar-year base ending December 31. 

(a)Straight-line method for 2014.

(b)Activity method (units of output) for 2014.

(c)Activity method (working hours) for 2014

(d)Sum-of-the-years-digits for 2016.

(e)Double-declining-balance method for 2015.

E11-17 (Impairment) Assume the same information for as e11-16, except that Suarez intends to dispose of the equipment in the coming year. It is expected that the cost of disposal will be  $20,000.

The following transactions occurred during 2015

(a)On May 5, Machine A was sold for 13,000 cash. The company’s bookkeeper recorded this retirement in the following manner in the cash receipts journal

Cash                                13,000    

    Machinery A                                      13,000

(b)On Dember 31, it was determined that Machine B had been used 2,100 hours during 2015.

(c)On December 31, before computing depreciation expense on Machine C, the management of Eshkol, decided the useful life remaining from January 1, 2015, was 10 years.

(d)On December 31, it was discovered that a machine purchased in 2014 had been expensed completely that year. This machine cost 28,000 and has a useful life of 10 years and no salvage value. Management had decided to use the double-declining balance method for this machine, which can be referred to as “Machine E.”


Prepare the necessary correcting entries for the year 2015. Record the appropriate depreciation expense on the above-mentioned machines.
