True or false?
The equity method is usually more appropriate for accounting for investments where the purchaser does not have significant influence over the investee.
1. The long term investment is not held to meet current cash needs.
So the answer is Option C.
2. Depreciation is a non-cash expense. The company does not pay anything to claim depreciation as an expense.
So the answer is Option B.
3. The difference between cost and equity method lies in recording the investment and consequently any income received out of such investment. There is no difference in accounting for the sale of investment under both methods.
So the answer is True.
4. The equity method is more appropriate when the purchaser has a significant influence over the investee.
So the answer is False.
