ACCT 6301: Financial Accounting E7.19 Example for depreciation methods Equipment costing \$640,000, with an expected useful life of twelve years and an expected salvage value of \$20,000, was purchased at the beginning of the year. Calculate the depreciation expense for the first five years using (a) the sum-of-years’ digits method and (b) the double-declining-balance method. Which method would you prefer to use for (a) income tax purposes and (b) financial reporting purchases? Why? Professor Suresh Radhakrishnan 2
ACCT 6301: Financial Accounting Solution Depreciable cost = Acquisition cost – Salvage value = 640,000 – 20,000 = 620,000 a. Sum-of-the-years’ digits 12 years useful life, implies sum of digits = 1 + 2 + …+11 + 12 = n(n+1)/2 = (12 × 13)/2 = 78 Year Depreciation Rate Depreciable Cost Depreciation Expense 1 12/78 \$620,000 \$95,385 2 11/78 620,000 87,436 3 10/78 620,000 79,487 4 9/78 620,000 71,538 5 8/78 620,000 63,590 Total \$397,436 b.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
