(2) Example, suppose tax-allowable depreciation is allowed on the cost of plant and machinery at the rate of 25% on a reducing balance basis. Thus if a company purchases plant costing $80,000, the subsequent writing down allowances would be as follows: Year Tax-allowable depreciation ($) Reducing balance ($) 1 2 3 4 (3) When the plant is eventually sold, the difference between the sale price and the reducing balance amount at the time of sale will be treated as: (a) a taxable profit if the sale price exceeds the reducing balance, and (b) as a tax allowable loss if the reducing balance exceeds the sale price. (4) The cash saving on tax-allowable depreciation (or the cash payment for the charge) is calculated by multiplying the depreciation by the tax rate. (5) There are two possible assumptions about the time when tax-allowable depreciation starts to be claimed. (a) It can be assumed that the first claim occurs at the start of the project (at year 0) (b) Alternatively it can be assumed that the first claim occurs later in the first year

It would have a life of four years, after which it would be sold for $5,000. The machinery would create annual cost savings of $14,000. The company pays tax one year in arrears at an annual rate of 30% and can claim tax-allowable depreciation on a 25% reducing balance basis. A balancing allowance is claimed in the final year of operation. The company's cost of capital is 8%. Should the machinery be purchased? Exercise A company is considering the purchase of an item of equipment, which would earn profits before tax of $25,000 a year. Depreciation charges would be $20,000 a year for six years. Tax- allowable depreciation would be $30,000 a year for the first four years. Tax is at 30%. What would be the annual net cash inflows of the project: (a) For the first four years (b) For the fifth and sixth years assuming that tax payments occur in the same year as the profits giving rise to them, and there is no balancing charge or allowance when the machine is scrapped at the end of the sixth year? NPV Layout When answering an NPV question, you may find it helpful to use the following layout. The most important thing to notice is that tax on cash profits and cash flows arising from tax- allowable depreciation can be calculated and presented separately. There is no need to combine them into a single cash flow figure for tax.

    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.
