Sandblasting equipment acquired at a cost of \$105,000 has an estimated residual value of \$6,000 and an estimated useful life of 10 years. It was placed in service on October 1 of the current fiscal year, which ends on December 31, 20Y5.

a. Determine the depreciation for 20Y5 and for 20Y6 by the straight-line method. Round your answer to the nearest cent if rounding is required.

20Y5 Depreciation

20Y6 Depreciation

b. Determine the depreciation for 20Y5 and for 20Y6 by the double-declining-balance method. Round your answer to the nearest cent if rounding is required.

20Y5 Depreciation

20Y6 Depreciation

(a)Depreciation by Straight-line method

Straight-line Depreciation = (Cost of the assets – Salvage Value) / Useful Life

20Y5 Depreciation = [ (\$1,05,000 - \$6,000) / 10 Years ] x 3/12** = \$2,475

20Y6 Depreciation = [ (\$2,70,000 - \$9,000) / 3 ] = \$9,900

**First Year Depreciation for 3 Months Only, Since the Asset was placed in service on October 1, So only 3 Months depreciation expense will be provided

(b)Depreciation by Double-declining-balance method

Double Declining Depreciation = 2 x Straight Line Depreciation Rate x Book Value Beginning

Straight Line Depreciation Rate = 1 / Useful life = 1/10 = 0.10

20Y5 Depreciation = [ \$1,05,000 x 2 x 0.10 ] x 3/12 = \$5,250

20Y6 Depreciation = [ (\$1,05,000 - \$5,250) x 2 x 0.10 ] = \$19,950
