Doubts in FSA Quizzes

Postby nidhi123stary » Sat Nov 03, 2012 12:28 am

At the beginning of the year, triple W corporation purchased a new piece of equipment to be used in its manufacturing operation. The cost of the equipment was $25,000. The equipment is expected to be used for 4 years and then sold for $4,000. Depreciation expense to be reported for the second year using the double declining balance method is closest to
Choose one answer.
a. $ 5,250
b. $6,250
c. $7,000
The correct answer is $6,250.

Year 1: (2/4)*25,000= $12,500, year 2: (2/4)*(25,000-12,500)= $6,250

As per me the answer should be A. 5250 as there is residual value of 4000 too after 4 years. Please confirm if I am wrong or right.

Salvage Value is never reduced while calculating the depreciation as per Double Decling Method.

the salvage value is not considered in determining the annual depreciation when using the double-declining-balance method, however, the book value of the asset being depreciated is never brought below its salvage value.

Hope this helps!
