Mack Company plans to depreciate a new building using the double declining-balance depreciation method. The building cost is $800,000. The estimated residual value of the building is $50,000 and it has an expected useful life of 25 years.

What is the building's book value at the end of the first year?

A.) $686,000

B.) $736,000

C.) $690,000

D.) $768,000

Answer #1

Warren Company plans to depreciate a new building using the
double declining-balance depreciation method. The building cost
$960,000. The estimated residual value of the building is $66,000
and it has an expected useful life of 25 years. Assuming the first
year's depreciation expense was recorded properly, what would be
the amount of depreciation expense for the second year?

Double-Declining-Balance Depreciation
A building acquired at the beginning of the year at a cost of
$76,400 has an estimated residual value of $3,100 and an estimated
useful life of four years. Determine the following.
(a)
The double-declining-balance rate
%
(b)
The double-declining-balance depreciation for the first
year

Opine Company uses the double-declining-balance method of
depreciation. It purchases a building with a cost of $560,000, a
salvage value of $32,000 and a useful life of 16 years. What is the
depreciation expense for the second year? A. $61,250 B. $60,000 C.
$57,750 D. $70,000 E. $66,000

Using the Double Declining Balance (DDB)
depreciation method for equipment with an initial cost of $282,000,
an anticipated useful life of 10 years, and a salvage value of
$35,250, calculate the (a) depreciation rate, d=?,
(b) the Depreciation charge, D=?, at the end of
year 2, and (c) the Book Value, BV=?, at the end
of year 2.

1) Depreciation computed under double−declining−balance
will decrease each year because:
A.the book value used in the computation each year increases
B.the rate used in the computation each year decreases
C.the book value used in the computation each year decreases
D.the rate used in the computation each year increases
2) At the end of an asset's useful life, the balance in
Accumulated Depreciation will:
A.be greater under units−of−production depreciation than under
straight-line depreciation
B. be a greater amount under straight-line depreciation...

The book value of an asset when using double-declining-balance
depreciation is always greater than the book value from using
straight-line depreciation, except at the beginning and the end of
the asset's useful life, when it is the same.
TRUE OR FALSE?

Computing Straight-Line and Double-Declining-Balance
Depreciation
On January 2, 2016, Fischer Company purchases a machine that
manufactures a part for one of its key products. The machine cost
$264,600 and is estimated to have a useful life of six years, with
an expected salvage value of $22,500.
Compute depreciation expense for 2016 and 2017 for the following
depreciation methods.
a. Straight-line.
b. Double-declining balance.

Double-declining
Answer
Answer

Annual depreciation expense on a building purchased a few years
ago (using the straight-line method) is $4,800. The cost of the
building was $96,000. The current book value of the equipment
(January 1, 2018) is $81,600. At the time of purchase, the asset
was estimated to have a zero salvage value. On January 1, 2018, the
company decided to reduce the original useful life by 25% and to
establish a salvage value of $4,800. The firm also decided
double-declining-balance depreciation...

"Compute the book value at the end of 4 years using
double-declining-balance (DDB) depreciation schedule for the
following asset: Cost of the asset, I: $300,000. Useful life, N: 8
years. Salvage value, S: $34,000."

"Compute the book value at the end of 5 years using
double-declining-balance (DDB) depreciation schedule for the
following asset:
Cost of the asset, I: $298,000.
Useful life, N: 7 years.
Salvage value, S: $35,000."
