1 AF3110 Intermediate Accounting 1 2009/10 Semester 2 Topic 8 Suggested Solutions Question 1 (Chapter 12 Q13) (a) (i) The depreciation charge is based on the cost of the asset, less the expected net residual value at the time of disposal, over the expected useful life to the owner. \$000 \$000 Cost of boat 200 Residual value 180 Realisation costs (10%) 18 162 Depreciable amount 38 Depreciation is therefore \$19,000 in 20X3 and 20X4. The basis of the calculation is that the boat should be depreciated over the period the owner expects to receive an economic benefit, not the physical life of the asset itself. (ii) \$000 \$000 Cost of boat 200 Depreciation (\$19,000 x 2) 38 162 Proceeds on sale 180 Realisation costs 18 162 Profit on disposal - The profit (loss) on disposal represents excessive (inadequate) depreciation provided over the non-current asset s useful economic life. It can be viewed as a correction for accounting estimate. (b) The carrying amount will be written off over the remaining useful life.

### 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.
