E11-4 (Depreciation Computations—Five Methods) Wenner Furnace Corp. purchased machinery for \$279,000 on May 1, 2012. 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 2013, Wenner Corp. uses the machinery for 2,650 hours, and the machinery produces 25,500 units.

a. \$279,000 – \$15,000 = \$264,000; \$264,000 ÷ 10 yrs. = \$26,400
b. \$264,000 ÷ 240,000 units = \$1.10; 25,500 units X \$1.10 = \$28,050
c. \$264,000 ÷ 25,000 hours = \$10.56 per hr.; 2,650 hrs. X \$10.56 = \$27,984
d. 10 + 9 + 8 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 4 + 3 + 2 + 1 = 55 OR
n(n + 1) = 10(11) 55

E11-8 Goldman Corporation bought a machine on June 1, 2010, for \$31,800, f.o.b. the place of manufacture. Freight to the point where it was set up was \$200, and \$500 was expended to install it. The machine’s useful life was estimated at 10 years, with a salvage value of \$2,500. On June 1, 2011, an essential part of the machine is replaced, at a cost of \$2,700, with one designed to reduce the cost of operating the machine. The cost of the old part and related depreciation cannot be determined with any accuracy. On June 1, 2014, the company buys a new machine of greater capacity for \$35,000, delivered, trading in the old machine which has a fair value and trade-in allowance of \$20,000. To prepare the old machine for removal from the plant cost \$75, and expenditures to install the new one were \$1,500. It is estimated that the new machine has a useful life of 10 years, with a salvage value of \$4,000 at the end of that time. The exchange has commercial…...

...Global Leprosy In 1978, NIAID awarded two contracts for the purpose of fractionating Mycobacterium leprae-infected armadillo organs to derive sizable quantities of M. leprae for use by the leprosy research community. Dr. Brennan's program at National Jewish Hospital was awarded one of the two contracts. Upon Dr. Brennan's transfer to Colorado State University in 1980, the work moved there. Thus, we have had this contract since 1979 through five subsequent recompetitions. Since the closing of the WHO/IMMLEP M. leprae Bank in 1990, this Contract is now the sole source of appreciable quantities of M. leprae and its various products. Prior to 1995, two contracts existed, "Isolation, Purification and Characterization of Antigens from Purified Mycobacterium leprae Obtained from Armadillo Tissue" at CSU and "Establishment and Maintenance of an Armadillo Colony Infected with M. leprae" at Florida Institute of Technology, Melbourne, FL, under Dr. Eleanor E. Storrs and, later, Dr. A. Dhople. In 1995, one contract in two parts was announced, and the Gillis W. Long Hansen's Disease Center, Carville/Louisiana State University (Dr. Richard Truman, PI) was the successful bidder for part II. Part II is now responsible for producing and shipping to us about 6 kg per year of combined livers and spleens from infected armadillos with up to 1010AFB/g tissue resulting in a yield of about 10 g of pure M. leprae per year. This contract has been subsequently awarded in 2002. In addition, in...

#### Depreciation Case

...As per the idea presented by few people at CFS, the company can charge the rental operation with depreciation expense. Generally, real property never depreciates in value, but since the investment in the property generates income via appreciation of value, it is acceptable to recover the costs against the income earned, through annual depreciation deductions. In our case, the sole purpose of the company’s real estate fund, which consists of houses, hotels and commercial buildings, is to provide income in the form of rental cash flow and share of appreciation in value of those properties. Since the property is used for an income producing activity, the company can charge rental operation with depreciation expense. Despite the fact that the general rule is that the property will increase in value, or "appreciate" over time, charging depreciation does not indicate that the value of property have depreciated. Depreciation is merely an accounting expense to allocate the cost of the property over different periods (the asset’s useful life). Charging depreciation can also provide tax shelter for the company, since the depreciation cost can be treated as a considerable amount of tax deduction. Furthermore, such treatment provides an income statement more comparable to other real estate entities, as the rental operation costs are normally depreciated by most companies. This provides better comparability, however, at the cost of relevancy. Alternative 2: Do not charge rental...

#### Depreciation

...Depreciation Depreciation is a non-cash expense which reduces the value of a fixed asset except Land as a result of wear and tear, age, or obsolescence. Most assets lose their value over time (in other words, they depreciate), and must be replaced once the end of their useful or economic life is reached. There are several accounting methods that are used in order to write off an asset's depreciation cost over the period of its useful life because it is a non-cash expense, depreciation lowers the company's reported earnings while increasing free cash flow. In a simple word depreciation is all about the reduction in the value of fixed assets and the allocation of the cost of assets to periods in which the assets are used. While depreciation expense is recorded on the income statement of a business, its impact is generally recorded in a separate account and disclosed on the balance sheet as accumulated depreciation, under fixed assets, according to most accounting principles. Without an accumulated depreciation account on the balance sheet, depreciation expense is usually charged against the relevant asset directly. The values of the fixed assets stated on the balance sheet will decline, even if the business has not invested in or disposed of any assets. The amounts will roughly approximate fair value. Otherwise, depreciation expense is charged against accumulated depreciation. Showing accumulated depreciation separately on the balance sheet has the effect of...

#### Delta Depreciation

...Question 1 (i) Delta Air Lines need to update the residual value and depreciation of their aircraft over time in order to calculate the life of the aircraft. The calculation requires estimation and assumptions such as the long-term of usage, maintenance cost, residual value and economic conditions which need constant review. Technological changes in the industry are one of the reasons why Delta Air Lines decided to extend the useful lives of their flight equipment. Technological advances such as changing engines from pistons to jet engines allow aircrafts to function more efficiently with less wear and tear on the airframes and for longer period of times. With consistently updated with latest technology, aircraft are better maintained and can simply last much longer. In addition, Delta Air Lines decision to change in depreciation since 1986 had a positive impact on the company’s financial statements. Depreciation is a non-cash item which does not affect cash flows or revenue. However, it does have an effect on the net income. By stretching out depreciation, Delta will see a decrease in depreciation expense resulting in higher net income. This is crucial for not only for Delta Air Lines, but to all airlines companies as well as intense competition and deregulation in the industry were being pressured to show more profits and results. The disadvantage to decreasing in depreciation is taxes. With decreased depreciation and increased net income, Delta Air Lines...

The experiment only contains two dependent variables, one dependent variable being the sex label and the other dependent variable being the gender pronouns. Participants The participants were all close friends or family of 1st year psychology students studying at Teesside University. In total there were six participants, four of which were female and 2 male. The age range of participants was 23-71 years old with a mean of 41.00. Each participant completed consent forms to adhere to The SSS&L ethics committee who approved this study. Materials The stimulus used in this experiment was a picture of a soft toy, participants were provided with a pen and paper to describe the toy. There where two questions used in the experiment to obtain gender bias results. Certain inanimate words where used within the first part of the study in order not to try and manipulate the participant’s way of thinking about gender of the soft toy. Procedure The researcher explained all procedures before experiment commenced. Participants were then presented with a picture of a soft toy, they were then asked to write 3 or 4 sentences describing the beginning of a story about the toy, using inanimate language.

#### Bonus Depreciation

.... Assume Super Corporation invest in a new 7-year large equipment under two situations due to the tax provision change. As the table shows, it involves interaction among section 179, bonus deprecation, and regular MACRS depreciation. The table illustrates the features as follows: (1) The Section 179 deduction applies both new and used property; bonus depreciation applies only to new property. (2) In scenario 1, the section 179 deduction is reduced dollar for dollar for purchases in excess of \$2,000,000. In scenario 2, the section 179 deduction is reduced dollar for dollar for purchases in excess of \$200,000. (3) MACRS normal depreciation is computed on the remaining basis after reduction for Section 179 and bonus depreciation. (4).The deferred tax payments are spread out over the remaining six years of the equipment, starting in year two. In scenario 1, Super Corporation allowed to claim a deduction equal to 50% of the cost of a qualified asset. The other 50% of the asset’s cost is subject to MACRS depreciation schedule. 77% of the \$1.1 million price for the new equipment can be written off. Then assume a combined 40% tax rate (federal and state tax), \$337,148 equals to a 31% of the purchase price of \$1.1 million being paid for by tax savings. Assume the qualified assets will not be sold during the seven years, the purchase will both eventually save 40% of the purchase price in reduced taxes in these two situations. In other words, the more we depreciate now, the less......
