Presentation and Analysis

Presentation of Property, Plant, Equipment, and Natural Resources

Depreciating assets, use Accumulated Depreciation.

Depleting assets may include use of Accumulated Depletion account, or the direct reduction of asset.

  • Basis of valuation (cost)

  • Pledges, liens, and other commitments

  • Depreciation expense for the period.

  • Balances of major classes of depreciable assets.

  • Accumulated depreciation.

  • A description of the depreciation methods used.

Depreciation method of cost allocation5 l.jpg
Depreciation - Method of Cost Allocation

Depreciation is the accounting process of allocating the cost of tangible assets to expense in a systematic and rational manner to those periods expected to benefit from the use of the asset.

  • Allocating costs of long-term assets:

  • Fixed assets = Depreciation expense

  • Intangibles = Amortization expense

  • Natural resources = Depletion expense

LO 1 Explain the concept of depreciation.

Methods of Depreciation

The profession requires the method employed be “systematic and rational.” Examples include:

  • Activity method (units of use or production).

  • Straight-line method.

  • Sum-of-the-years’-digits.

  • Declining-balance method.

  • Group and composite methods.

  • Hybrid or combination methods.

Accelerated methods

Special methods

E11-4 - Method of Cost Allocation

Exercise (Depreciation Computations—Five Methods)John Seceda Furnance Corp. purchased machinery for $315,000 on May 1, 2007. It is estimated that it will have a useful life of 10 years, salvage value of $15,000, production of 240,000 units, and working hours of 25,000. During 2008 Seceda Corp. uses the machinery for 2,650 hours, and the machinery produces 25,500 units.

Instructions: Compute the depreciation expense for 2008 under the following methods.

(a) Straight-line depreciation.

(b) Units-of-output

(c) Working hours.

(d) Sum-of-the-years’-digits.

(e) Double-declining balance (use 20% as the annual rate)

Special Depreciation Issues

  • How should companies compute depreciation for partial periods?

    • Companies normally compute depreciation on the basis of the nearest full month.

  • Does depreciation provide for the replacement of assets?

    • Funds for the replacement of the assets come from the revenues

  • How should companies handle revisions in depreciation rates?

    • Handle like "Change in Estimate"


Depreciation method of cost allocation9 l.jpg
Depreciation - Method of Cost Allocation

  • Changes in Depreciation Rate

    • Accounted for in the period of change and future periods (Change in Estimate)

    • Not handled retrospectively

    • Not considered errors or extraordinary items

LO 4 Explain special depreciation methods.


Change in estimate example l.jpg
Change in Estimate Example

Arcadia HS, purchased equipment for $510,000 which was estimated to have a useful life of 10 years with a salvage value of $10,000 at the end of that time. Depreciation has been recorded for 7 years on a straight-line basis. In 2005 (year 8), it is determined that the total estimated life should be 15 years with a salvage value of $5,000 at the end of that time.

Questions:

  • What is the journal entry to correct the prior years’ depreciation?

  • Calculate the depreciation expense for 2005.

No Entry

LO 4 Explain special depreciation methods.


Change in estimate example11 l.jpg
Change in Estimate Example

After 7 years

Equipment cost $510,000

Salvage value - 10,000

Depreciable base 500,000

Useful life (original) 10 years

Annual depreciation $ 50,000

First, establish NBV at date of change in estimate.

x 7 years = $350,000

Balance Sheet(Dec. 31, 2004)

Fixed Assets:

LO 4 Explain special depreciation methods.


Impairments l.jpg
Impairments

When the carrying amount of an asset is not recoverable, a company records a write-off referred to as an impairment.

  • Events leading to an impairment:

  • Decrease in the market value of an asset.

  • Change in the manner in which an asset is used.

  • Adverse change in legal factors or in the business climate.

  • An accumulation of costs in excess of the amount originally expected to acquire or construct an asset.

  • A projection or forecast that demonstrates continuing losses associated with an asset.


Impairments14 l.jpg
Impairments

Measuring Impairments

  • Review events for possible impairment.

  • If the review indicates impairment, apply the recoverability test. If the sum of the expected future net cash flows from the long-lived asset is less than the carrying amount of the asset, an impairment has occurred.

  • 3. Assuming an impairment, the impairment loss is the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset. The fair value is the market value or the present value of expected future net cash flows.

Accounting for Impairments

E11-16 (Impairment)Presented below is information related to equipment owned by Suarez Company at December 31, 2007. Assume that Suarez will continue to use this asset in the future. As of December 31, 2007, the equipment has a remaining useful life of 4 years.

Instructions:

(a) Prepare the journal entry (if any) to record the impairment of the asset at December 31, 2007.

(b) Prepare the journal entry to record depreciation expense for 2008.

(c) The fair value of the equipment at December 31, 2008, is $5,100,000. Prepare the journal entry (if any) necessary to record this increase in fair value.

LO 5 Explain the accounting issues related to asset impairment.

Depletion20 l.jpg
Depletion

Natural resources, often called wasting assets, include petroleum, minerals, and timber.

They have two main features:

  • complete removal (consumption) of the asset, and

  • replacement of the asset only by an act of nature.

Depletionis the process of allocating the cost of natural resources.


Depletion21 l.jpg
Depletion

Establishing a Depletion Base

  • Computation of the depletion base involves four factors:

  • Acquisition cost of the deposit,

  • Exploration costs,

  • Development costs, and

  • Restoration costs.


Depletion22 l.jpg
Depletion

Write-off of Resource Cost

Normally, companies compute depletion on a units-of-production method(an activity approach). Thus, depletion is a function of the number of units extracted during the period.

Calculation:

Total cost – Salvage value

= Depletion cost per unit

Total estimated units available

Units extracted x Cost per unit

= Depletion
