purchased a machine on January 1, 2008, by paying cash of $250,000. The
machine has an estimated useful life of five years (or the production of
500,000 units) and an estimated residual value of $25,000. Required: A.
Determine depreciation expense (to the nearest dollar) and book value for
each year of the machine’s useful life under (1.) straight-line depreciation;
and (2.) the 200% declining balance method. B. If the machine was used to
produce and sell 120,000 units in 2008, what would the depreciation expense
be under the units of production method?
A company purchased
equipment for $800,000 and has depreciated it using the straight-line method
for the past 5 years when its original life was estimated to be 10 years with
a $200,000 residual value. The equipment’s utility to the company has declined
because they expect it to generate a net cash flow over the remaining years
of $200,000 from its operation. If the asset has been impaired, record the
journal entry to recognize the loss.

You are a financial
analyst for your company and have been asked to determine the impact of various
depreciation methods on the companyâ€™s financial statements. Your analysis is
based on a machine costing $110,000 with an estimated useful life of 12 years and
an estimated residual value of $8,000. The machine also has an estimated useful
life in output of 220,000 units. Actual output was 21,000 units in year 1 and
15,000 units in year 2.
For years 1 and 2, prepare depreciation schedules (round all
results to the nearest dollar) for the asset assuming:

Evaluate each method in terms of its effect on cash flows, fixed
asset turnover, and earnings per share. Assuming that the company is most
interested in maintaining a high EPS during year 1 and 2, which method
would you recommend? Assuming that the company is most interested in
reducing taxes during year 1 and 2, which method would you recommend?
