Depreciation Problem 1.

Special Points : (a) Depreciation under Fixed Instalment Method; (b) Assets purchased on different dates, (C) Sale of Asset, (d) Loss on Sale

B. Co. Purchased machinery as follows :

Date of Purchase Cost of Machine (Rs.)

1.4.2006 → 60,000
1.10.2006→ 40,000
1.7.2007 →20,000

On 1.1.2008 one-third of the machinery which was purchased on 1.4.2006 became obsolete and was sold for Rs. 6,000. The machinery was to be depreciated by Fixed Instalment Method at
10% p a.

Show how the Machinery Account would appear in the ledger of the Company for the years
2006. 2007 and 2008. Assume that the accounting year of the Company ends on 31st December
every year.

(Ans: Loss on sale Rs. 10,500; Annual Depreciation 2006 Rs. 5,500: 2007 Rs. 11,000; 2008 Rs.
10,000. Balance at Machinery Account on 31. 12.2008 Rs. 77,000)

Rajeev Mantya! You have to calculate depreciation, loss on sale of machinery first before making machinery account. See, how to?

a) Calculation of Depreciation for 2006

i) 10% on 60000 for 9 months = 60000X 9/12 X 10/100 = 4500
ii) 10% on 40000 for 3 months = 40000 X 3/12 X 10/100 = 1000
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Total Depreciation of 2006 = 5500
--------------------------------------------------------------------

b) Calculation of Depreciation for 2007

i) 10% on 100000 for one year = 100000 X 10% = 10000
ii) 10% on 20000 for 6 months = 20000 X 6/12 X 10% = 1000
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Total Depreciation for 2007 = 11000
===============================================

c) Calculation of Depreciation for 2008

i) 10% on ( 60000 - 60000 X 1/3) for one year = 4000
ii) 10% on other machinery ( 40000 +20000) for one year = 6000
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Total Depreciation for 2008 = 10000
================================================

d) Calculation of Loss on Sale of Machinery

Cost of Machinery on 1-4-2006 = 60000 X 1/3 = 20000
Less Depreciation 10 % for 2006 = 20000 X 9/12X 10% =  (-) 1500
Less Depreciation 10% for 2007= 20000 X 10% = (-) 2000
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Cost of Machinery on 1-4-2008 = 16500
Less Sale Value on 1-4-2008 =  6000
---------------------------------------------------------------------
Loss on Sale of Machinery = 10500
===============================================

Now, it is easy to make machinery account. It is real account and all purchasing of assets will debit and sale will credit in this account and balance will show in the asset side of balance sheet.

Amount 1-4-2006 Bank a/c- purchase 60000 31-12-2006 Depreciation a/c 5500 1-10-2006 Bank a/c- purchase 40000 31-12-2006 Balance c/d 94500 100000 100000 1-1-2007 Balance b/d 94500 31-12-2007 Depreciation a/c 11000 1-7-2007 Bank a/c- purchase 20000 31-12-2007 Balance c/d 103500 114500 114500 1-1-2008 Balance b/d 103500 1-1-2008 Bank a/c- Sale 6000 1-1-2008 Profit and loss account -loss 10500 31-12-2008 Depreciation a/c 10000 31-12-2008 Balance c/d 77000 103500 103500

Please wait for the answer of other depreciation problems. Soon, I will be update.

Depreciation Problem 2.

Special Points : (a) Use of Provision for Depreciation Account, (b) Journal Entries, (c) Sale and Profit on
sale.

After Rs. 5,000 was provided for depreciation in the current year. the accumulated provision
for depreciation went up to Re. 50,000. The Machine concerned whose original cost had been
Rs. 55,000 was then sold as scrap for Rs. 20,000 (cash) and replaced thereafter by a new machine
costing Rs. 75,000. Give Journal entries to record the above transactions.
(Ans.: Profit on sale of scrap Rs.15000]

Depreciation Problem 3.

Special Points (a) Depreciation under diminishing balance method, (b) Purchase of Assets on different
dates, (c) Sale and profit or loss on sale.

Q Ltd, purchased on 1st January, 2008 a machine for Rs. 10,000. On 1.7.08 it again purchased
another machine for Rs. 5,000. On 1.7.09 the machine purchased on 1.1.2008 was sold for Rs.
4,000. On 1.7.2010 a new machine was purchased for Rs. 12,000. On the same date the machine
purchased on 1.7.2008 was sold for Rs. 4,200.
Depreciation was provided at 10% p.a. on the written down value every year. Show the Machinery
Account .
(Ans.: Loss on sale in 2009= Rs.. 4,550 Profit on sale in 2010 = Rs. 139)

1. Excellent Workings

2. Workkng is really v. Good and easy to understand

3. Isn't that the depreciation for 2007 for (1) is (60000-4500)*0.1 and (40000-1000)*0.1 ? Because the value has depreciated in 2006, so 60000-4500 and 40000-1000 then times the depreciation rate.

1. There the depreciation method is straight line /original cost

So there the amount of depreciation is fixed for every year

4. it was so help ful

5. please if a machine has 400,000 cost prize,18000 salvage value and useful life of 10 years but then needs 5000 for dismantling.. how do I solve it using double decline method

6. The dismantling should be treated same as installation cost but it has the opposite effect, without dismantling cost the Machine will still function so it should be capitalized
Therefore the solution for that problem is as follows:
* Double Declining rate = 1/10 * 2 = 0.2 = 20%
* Machine cost = 405,000
1 st Year = 405,000 * 20% =81,000 (Dep expenses )
2 nd Year = (405,000 - 81,000 ) * 20% = 64,800
and the calculation continue until the NBV Value reach the Salvage value.

7. A machine was purchased on 1.1.14 for Rs.38800 and Rs.1200 were spent on its erection.On1.7.14,additional machinery costing Rs.20000 was acquired.On 1.7.16 further additional machinery was purchased at a cost of Rs.30000.Depreciation Was provided annually on 31 December at the rate of 10% p.a.,on the original cost of the asset.Prepare the Machinery Account from 2014 to 2016

9. Kindly solve this, question
Q. A firm of manufactures, whose books are closed on 31th Dec, purchased machinery for \$ 50000 on 15 Jan 1980. Additional Machinery was acquired for \$ 10000 on 1st july 1981 and for \$ 16466 on 14th April 1984. Certain machinery which cost \$ 10000 was sold for \$5000 on 30th june 1983.
give the machinery account for five years writing Off depreciation at 10 percent on the written down value,

11. The profit of my solution is 353. I didn't know that how is your profit 139.🤔

1. Because the machine is depreciated for months .. Divide depreciation for the year with 6/12 and then minus it with the book value . Compare it with the amount it has been sold for . And u will get the answer .
