Financial Accounting
Problem 9-7A
In recent years, Farr Company has purchased three machines. Because of frequent employee turnover in the accounting department, a different accountant was in charge of selecting the depreciation method for each machine, and various methods have been used. Information concerning the machines is summarized in the table below.
Machine Acquired Cost Salvage Value Useful Life (years) Depreciation Method
1 Jan. 1, 2012 138,000 30,000 10 Straight-line
2 Jul. 1 2013 82,000 11,500 5 Declining-balance
3 Nov. 1, 2013 97,430 7,830 6 Units-of-activity
For the declining-balance method, Farr Company uses the double-declining rate. For the units-of-activity method, total machine hours are expected to be 32,000. Actual hours of use in the first 3 years were: 2013, 760; 2014, 5,250; and 2015, 6,800.

1. Compute the amount of accumulated depreciation on each machine at December 31, 2015.
2. If machine 2 was purchased on April 1 instead of July 1, what would be the depreciation expense for this machine in 2013? In 2014?
