An asset was purchased for \$57,000 and originally estimated to have a useful life of 10 years with a residual value of \$4,100. After two years of straight-line depreciation, it was determined that the remaining useful life of the asset was only 2 years with a residual value of \$1,640.

a. Determine the amount of the annual depreciation for the first two years.
\$

b. Determine the book value at the end of Year 2.
\$

c. Determine the depreciation expense for each of the remaining years after revision.
\$

Ans:

Annual Depreciation earlier = (Cost-Residual Value)/Useful life

Annual Depreciation earlier = (57000-4100)/10

1.Annual Depreciation earlier = 5290

Accumulated Depreciation = Annual Depreciation earlier*2

Accumulated Depreciation = 5290*2

Accumulated Depreciation =10580

Book Value = 60000-10580

2.Book Value at the end of Year 2= 49420

This Year Depreciation = (Book Value - revised residual value)/remaining useful life

Depreciation for remaining two years = (49420-1640)/2

3.Depreciation for remaining two years = \$ 23,890 each year Depreciation.

Hope this helped ! Let me know in case of any queries.
