FINANCIAL ACCOUNTINGA USER PERSPECTIVE

Hoskin • Fizzell • Davidson

Second Canadian Edition


Capital Assets

Chapter Eight


Capital Asset Recognition

  • Capital assets

    • Used to generate revenue over several periods in the future

    • Used until replaced with a new asset

    • Can have residual (or resale) value


Capital Asset Valuation

  • Historical cost

    • Original cost of the asset

    • Expensed (amortized) over the period used


Capital Asset Valuation

  • Gain or loss on sale

    • Recognized only when sold

    • Difference between proceeds of the sale and the net book value

  • Net book value (or carrying value)

    • Original cost less amortization


Capital Asset Valuation

  • Market value

    • Replacement cost

      • Amount that would be needed to acquire an equivalent asset

    • Net realizable value

      • Amount that could be received by converting the asset to cash


Capital Asset Valuation

  • Canadian practice

    • Uses historical cost

    • Amortized over the period of use

      • Maximum of 40 years

    • Market value changes generally not recognized


Capitalizable Costs

  • Costs to acquire and prepare the asset for use

    • Purchase price (less any discounts)

    • Installation costs

    • Transportation costs

    • Legal costs

    • Direct taxes


Basket Purchases

  • Several assets acquires in one transaction

  • Price paid is divided between the assets on the basis of their relative fair values at the time of acquisition


Basket Purchases

Timberland Example


Interest Capitalization

  • Companies often borrow money to finance a capital asset

  • Interest paid on borrowed money

    • Capitalized when it is included in the capital asset account rather than being expensed


Amortization (or Depreciation)

  • Method for allocating the cost of capital assets to the periods in which the benefits from the assets are received (the useful life)

  • Does not refer to the value of the asset

  • Follows the matching concept


Amortization Methods

  • Straight-line method

  • Accelerated or diminishing balance method

  • Decelerated method

  • Unit of production method

Straight-Line Method

  • Allocates the cost evenly over the life of the asset

  • Estimates needed for

    • Useful life

    • Residual value


Straight-Line Method

  • Assumptions:

    • Original Cost$10,000

    • Estimated

      • Residual Value $1,000

      • Useful Life5 years


Straight-Line Method

Straight-Line Method

Amortization Schedule


Accelerated Methods

  • Amortization

    • Multiply the carrying value of the asset by a fixed percentage

  • Carrying value decreases each year

  • Amortization expenses decreases each year


Accelerated Methods

  • Percentage rates

    • Lower when asset has longer life

  • Double declining balance method

    • Percentage is double the straight-line rate

    • Residual value

      • Not used for computations

      • Serves as a constraint


Double Declining Balance Method

  • Assumptions:

    • Original Cost$10,000

    • Estimated

      • Residual Value $1,000

      • Useful Life5 years

    • 200% Declining Balance Method


Double Declining Balance Method

  • Calculation:

    DB rate = DB% x SL rate

    = 200% x 1/n

    = 200% x 1/5

    = 40%


Double Declining Balance Method

Amortization Schedule


Production Method

  • Assumptions

    • Benefits derived are related to the output or use of an asset

  • Requires that the useful life can be expressed as units of output


Production Method

  • Assumptions:

    • Original Cost$10,000

    • Estimated Residual Value $1,000

    • Estimated Usage


Production Method

Amortization Schedule


Recording Amortization Expense

  • All amortization methods:

    SE-Amortization expenseXX

    XA-Accumulated amortizationXX


Corporate Income Taxes

  • Revenue Canada

    • Amortization expense is allowed to be deducted to calculate accounting income

    • Capital cost allowance (CCA) instead must be used to calculate taxable income


Corporate Income Taxes

  • May result in a temporary difference betweenAccounting income and taxable income

  • Result is a future tax asset or liability (formerly referred to as deferred tax)


Capital Cost Allowance (CCA)

  • Capital assets are grouped into classes and assigned a maximum rate

    • Vehicles: Class 10: rate 30%

    • Equipment: Class 8: rate 20%


Capital Cost Allowance (CCA)

  • Companies may deduct any part of the undepreciated capital costs (UCC) in the class up to the stated maximum

  • Exception:

    • Year of acquisition: 50% of normal amount


Capital Cost Allowance (CCA)

  • Central Corp. purchases new equipment (Class 8) at a cost of $20,000

  • CCA

    Year 1: 50% x $20,000 x 20% = $2,000

    Year 2: 20% x ($20,000-$2,000)= $3,600

    Year 3: 20% x ($20,000-$2,000-$3,600) = $2,880


Capital Cost Allowance (CCA)

  • Journal entry:

    SE-Tax expense11,460

    A-Future tax asset* 90

    L-Income taxes payable11,550

    *(Future tax liability if a credit balance)


Changes in Amortization Estimates and Methods

  • Estimates of useful life and residual value may change over time

  • Amortization may change as a result


Changes in Amortization Estimates and Methods

  • Straight-Line Method Assumptions

    • Original Cost$10,000

    • Residual Value $1,000

    • Useful Life 5 years

  • Changes in Year 4 (Estimations)

    • Remaining Useful Life3 years

    • Residual Value$ 400

Sale of Capital Assets

  • Original cost and accumulated amortization removed from accounts

  • Gain or loss: difference between cash received and book value

    A-Cash1,200

    XA-Accumulated amortization9,000

    A-Property, plant and equipment10,000

    SE-Gain on sale of PP&E 200


Disposal of Capital Assets

  • If assets are disposed of and no cash is received

    XA-Accumulated amortization9,000

    SE-Loss on disposal of PP&E1,000

    A-Property, plant and equipment10,000


Writedown of Capital Assets

  • If future recoverable amount of a capital asset declines below its carrying value

    SE-Loss due to damage to asset1,000

    XA-Accumulated amortization1,000


Natural Resources

  • Capitalizing the costs implies that they have future value

  • Example: oil exploration

  • Exploration costs choices

    • Full costing method

    • Successful efforts method


Intangible Assets

  • Intangible assets have probable future value but no physical form

  • Guidelines:

    • If developed internally, expense as incurred

    • If purchased, can be capitalized


Intangible Assets

  • Estimate useful life and residual value (if any)

  • Use straight-line method to amortize

    SE-Amortization expenseXX

    A-PatentsXX


Intangible Assets

  • Advertising

    • Generally expensed as incurred

  • Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights

    • Legal life is the maximum for amortizing

  • Goodwill

    • Capitalize and amortize if purchased
