LG1 3–1 Depreciation On March 20, 2003, Norton Systems acquired two new assets.
Asset A was research equipment costing $17,000 and having a 3-year recovery
period. Asset B was duplicating equipment having an installed cost of
$45,000 and a 5-year recovery period. Using the MACRS depreciation percentages in Table 3.2 on page 100, prepare a depreciation schedule for each of
these assets. LG2 3–2 Accounting cash flow A firm had earnings after taxes of $50,000 in 2003.
Depreciation charges were $28,000, and a $2,000 charge for amortization of a
bond discount was incurred. What was the firm’s accounting cash flow from
operations (see Equation 3.1) during 2003? LG1 LG2 3–3 MACRS depreciation expense and accounting cash flow Pavlovich Instruments, Inc., a maker of precision telescopes, expects to report pre-tax income of
$430,000 this year. The company’s financial manager is considering the timing
of a purchase of new computerized lens grinders. The grinders will have an
installed cost of $80,000 and a cost recovery period of 5 years. They will be
depreciated using the MACRS schedule.
a. If the firm purchases the grinders before year end, what depreciation expense
will it be able to claim this year? (Use Table 3.2 on page 100.)
b. If the firm reduces its reported income by the amount of the depreciation
expense calculated in part a, what tax savings will result?
c. Assuming that Pavlovich does purchase the grinders this year and that
they are its only depreciable asset, use the accounting definition given
in Equation 3.1 to find the firm’s cash flow from operations for the
year. LG1 LG2 3–4 Depreciation and accounting cash flow A firm in the third year of depreciating its only asset, which originally cost $180,000 and has a 5-year MACRS
recovery period, has gathered the following data relative to the current year’s
Total costs before depreciation, interest, and taxes
Tax rate on ordinary income $ 15,000

b. Explain the impact that depreciation, as well as any other noncash charges,
has on a firm’s cash flows.

It expects sales of $70,000 in June and $100,000 in July and in August. Assuming that sales are the only source of cash inflows and that half of them are for
