#### Homework Answers

Answer #1

1) Depreciation expense for 2020 and 2021 using the units of production method is calculated as follows:

Depreciation expense p.a = (Cost of Assets - Salvage Value) / Useful Life

= (\$36,000 - \$3,000 ) / 275,000 km.

= \$33,000 /275,000 km.

= 0.12 per km.

Depreciation expense for 2020 =   71,000 km * 0.12 per km. = \$8,520

Depreciation expense for 2021 =  84,000 km * 0.12 per km. = \$10,080

2) The asset’s capital cost allowance (CCA) for 2020 and 2021 is calculated as follows:

The asset’s capital cost allowance (CCA) rate is 30%

a)The asset’s capital cost allowance (CCA) for 2020 = \$36,000 * 15%   = \$5,400

The asset’s capital cost allowance (CCA) for 2020 is 5,400

b)The asset’s capital cost allowance (CCA) for 2021 =( \$36,000 - \$8,520 - \$5,400) * 30%    = \$6,624

The asset’s capital cost allowance (CCA) for 2021 is 6,624
