Straight-line Depreciation Assume a company acquires equipment for \$10,000 on 1/1/08. It is estimated that the equipment will have a useful life of 4 years and a salvage value of \$2,000 at the end of its life. What would a depreciation schedule look like? Year Calculation Depreciation Exp Net Book Value 2008 (10,000-2,000)/4 2,000 8,000 2009 (10,000-2,000)/4 2,000 6,000 2010 (10,000-2,000)/4 2,000 4,000 2011 (10,000-2,000)/4 2,000 2,000
Determine straight-line rate (100%/useful life). Double that rate. Apply that rate to the net book value at the beginning of the period to get depreciation expense. Net book value does not take into consideration salvage value.

Cost of machine - \$60,000 Estimated useful life – 10 years Estimated salvage value - \$5,000
Straight-line rate = 100%/10 yrs = 10% DDB Rate = 10% X 2 = 20% NBV @ 1 st yr = 60,000 Depreciation Expense = 60,000 X 20% = \$12,000 New NBV = 60,000 – 12,000 = \$48,000
