Part A Nonmonetary exchange. Layne Co. has a machine that cost \$255,000 on March 20, 2007. This old machine had an estimated life of ten years and a salvage value of \$15,000. On December 23, 2011, the old machine is exchanged for a new machine with a market value of \$162,000. The exchange lacked commercial substance. Layne also received \$18,000 cash. Assume that the last fiscal period ended on December 31, 2010, and that straight-line depreciation is used.

Straight-line Depreciation (\$255,000-\$15,000/10 years) = \$24,000 (Salvage Value) Accumulated Depreciation = \$24,000 * 3 = \$72,000 Book Value = (\$255,000 - \$72,000) = \$183,000 (Kieso, Weygandt and Warfield 504) Fair Value of machine exchanged \$180,000 Book Value of Machine Exchanged
