Impairments Impairments Illustration 11-16 Accounting for Impairments Note: The test for impairment begins with an assessment of the non discounted cash flows from an asset. Most individual assets do not have cash flows associated with them. Accordingly, the impairment test must be implemented at a broad enough, high enough level, so that there exists the ability to assess cash flows from a group of assets employed in those operations Chapter 18-33 LO 5 Explain the accounting issues related to asset impairment. Impairments Impairments Impairments E11-16 (Impairment): Presented below is information related to equipment owned by Pujols Company at December 31, 2010. Assume that Pujols will continue to use this asset in the future. As of December 31, 2010, the equipment has a remaining useful life of 4 years. Instructions: Cost A ccumulat ed depr eciat ion t o dat e Expect ed f ut ur e net cash f lows Fair value $ 9, 000, 000 1, 000, 000 7, 000, 000 4, 400, 000 (a) Prepare the journal entry (if any) to record the impairment of the asset at December 31, 2010. (b) Prepare the journal entry to record depreciation expense for 2011. (c) The fair value of the equipment at December 31, 2011, is $5,100,000. Prepare the journal entry (if any) necessary to record this increase in fair value. Chapter 18-34 LO 5 Explain the accounting issues related to asset impairment. Impairments Impairments (a). (a).

Restoration of any impairment loss is not permitted. Chapter 18-36 LO 5 Explain the accounting issues related to asset impairment. Depletion Depletion Natural resources, often called wasting assets, include petroleum, minerals, and timber. They have two main features: 1. complete removal (consumption) of the asset, and 2. replacement of the asset only by an act of nature. Depletion is the process of allocating the cost of natural resources. Chapter 18-37 LO 6 Explain the accounting procedures for depletion of natural resources. Depletion Depletion Establishing a Depletion Base Computation of the depletion base involves four factors: (1) Acquisition cost of the deposit, (2) Exploration costs, (3) Development costs, and (4) Restoration costs. Chapter 18-38 LO 6 Explain the accounting procedures for depletion of natural resources. Depletion Depletion Write-off of Resource Cost Normally, companies compute depletion on a units-of-production method (an activity approach). Thus, depletion is a function of the number of units extracted during the period. Calculation: Total cost – Salvage value Tota...
