On January 1, 2017, Sandhill Company purchased a building and equipment that have the following useful lives, salvage values, and costs.

 Building, 40-year estimated useful life, \$49,200 salvage value, \$828,000 cost Equipment, 12-year estimated useful life, \$11,200 salvage value, \$99,400 cost

The building has been depreciated under the double-declining-balance method through 2020. In 2021, the company decided to switch to the straight-line method of depreciation. Sandhill also decided to change the total useful life of the equipment to 9 years, with a salvage value of \$5,200 at the end of that time. The equipment is depreciated using the straight-line method.

(a) Prepare the journal entry necessary to record the depreciation expense on the building in 2021. (Round answers to 0 decimal places, e.g. 125. Credit account titles are automatically indented when amount is entered. Do not indent manually. If no entry is required, select "No Entry" for the account titles and enter 0 for the amounts.)

(b) Compute depreciation expense on the equipment for 2021. (Round answers to 0 decimal places, e.g. 125.)

a) Journal Entries :-

 S. No. Particulars Debit(\$) Credit(\$) 1) Depreciation Expenses A/c 17367 Accumlated Depreciation Expenses A/c 17367 2) Accumlated Depreciation Expenses A/c 17367 Building A/c 17367

Depreciation on 2021 = (Building Value - Salvage) / Remaining Life

= (\$674411 - \$49200) / 36

= \$17367

Building Value on end of 2020 =

 Particulars 2017 2018 2019 2020 Beginning Balance \$828000 \$786600 \$747270 \$709906.5 Less : Depreciation (5%) (\$41400) (\$39330) (\$37363.5) (\$35495.33) Ending Balance \$786600 \$747270 \$709906.5 \$674411.17

Double Declining Balance Depreciation Rate = SLM Rate * 2

= (100%/40)*2

= 5%

b) Calculation of Depreciation Expenses on Equipment for 2021 :-

= (Book Value of Equipment on 2021 - New Salvage) / New Usefull Life

= (\$70000 - 5200) / 9 years

= \$64800 / 9

= \$7200

Book Value of Equipment on 2021 = \$99400 - \$29400 = \$70000

Depreciation Upto 2020 = ((\$99400-\$11200) / 12)*4

= (\$88200 / 12)*4

= \$29400
