Question No 01 Chapter No 13

Life of Asset Given in Years

1. On 1st April 2016, a machine was purchased for Rs 35,000. The estimated life of the machine is 5 years after which its brake up value will be Rs 5,000 only. Prepare the machinery account for the first three years, by straight-line method assuming that the books are closed on 31st March.

The solution of Question No 01 Chapter No 13:-

The method of calculating the Deprecation rate:

 Amount of Depreciation = Cost of assets- Estimated Realizable or Scrap value Number of years of expected useful life

Rate of Deprecation can be calculated with the help of following formula:

Cost of assets = Cost of Machine = 35,000
Number of years of expected useful life = 5 years
Estimated Retaliated or Scrap value = 5,000

 Amount of Depreciation = 35,000-5,000 = 6,000 5

Rate of Depreciation = 6,000 / 35,000 X 100 = 17.14(app.)
Applying the rate of 17.14% on Rs 35,000, Depreciation amount is Rs 5,999.50 approximated to Rs 35,000
