Acc280 Financial Accounting

In recent years, Hrubeck Company purchased three machines. Because of heavy turnover in the accounting department, a different accountant was in charge of selecting the depreciation method for each machine and various methods were selected. Information concerning the machine is summarized below:
Machine Acquired Cost Salvage Value Useful Life in years Depreciation Method
1 1/1/2003 76,000 6,000 10 Straight-line
2 1/1/2004 80,000 10,000 8 Declining-balance
3 11/1/2006 78,000 6,000 6 Units-of-activity

For the declining-balance method, the company uses the double-declining rate. For the units-of-activity method, total machine hours are expected to be 24,000. Actual hours of use in the first 3 years were: 2006, 1,000; 2007, 4,500; and 2008, 5,000.
