AIT805 Chapter 5 Selected Assignment Problems and Solutions Problem 4 (Basic) The following are independent situations: (a) Gimcrack Inc. purchases its sole asset, costing $100,000, on February 15. The company has a February 28 year end. The asset purchased is a Class 8 asset. REQUIRED Calculate the capital cost allowance that may be claimed in the taxation year under the following independent scenarios. Fiscal period is 365 days. Fiscal period is 90 days. (b) RSI Ltd. sells computers and has a December 31 year end. RSI Ltd. leased a warehouse this year for ten years with a renewal option of two years and a second renewal option of three years. Leasehold improvements of $25,000 were made to the warehouse during the year. RSI has no other leasehold improvement assets. REQUIRED Calculate the maximum amount of CCA that may be claimed in this, the first taxation year. (c) Constabulary Ltd. acquired franchise rights for the amount of $25,000 to operate a doughnut and coffee shop. The franchise is valid for a period of 15 years commencing March 1. Constabulary Ltd.'s year end is July 31. REQUIRED What CCA or other deduction is Constabulary Ltd allowed this year? Solution 4 (Basic) (a) (i) $100,000 × 20% × 1 / 2 = $10,000 (ii) $100,000 × 20% × 1 / 2 × (90/365) = $2,466 In (ii), CCA is prorated because the taxation year is less than 365 days. (b) Leasehold improvements — CCA is lesser of (1) $25,000 × 1 / 5 × 1 / 2 = $2,500 (2) $25,000 × 1 / 12 × 1 / 2 = $1,042 (Twelve years is the denominator; this includes the initial lease term and the first renewal period.) (c) The franchise is for a limited term, hence it is a class 14 asset. The CCA on Class 14 assets is computed on a straight-line basis over the remaining life of the asset. The half-year rule does not apply to Class 14. CCA allowed to July 31 (153 days) is: $25,000 × 1 / 15 × (153/365) = $699 AIT805 Chapter 5 Page 1 of 9
