# ACC 205 Week 3 Exercise 7 Depreciation Computations

1. Specific identification method. Boston Galleries uses the specific identification method for inventory valuation. Inventory information for several oil paintings follows.

Painting Cost

1/2 Beginning inventory Woods \$21,000

4/19 Purchase Sunset 21,800

6/7 Purchase Earth 31,200

12/16 Purchase Moon 4,000

\$78,000 25,000

Woods and Moon were sold during the year for a total of \$35,000. Determine the firm’s

a. cost of goods sold.

b. gross profit.

c. ending inventory.

2. Inventory valuation methods: basic computations. The January beginning inven­tory of the Gilette Company consisted of 300 units costing \$40 each. During the first quarter, the company purchased two batches of goods: 700 Units at \$44 on February 21 and 800 units at \$50 on March 28. Sales during the first quarter were 1,400 units at \$75 per unit. The White Company uses a periodic inventory system. Using the White Company data, fill in the following chart to compare the results obtained under the FIFO, LIFO, and weighted-average inventory methods.

3. Perpetual inventory system: journal entries. At the beginning of 20X3, Beehler Company implemented a computerized perpetual inventory system. The first transactions that occurred during 20X3 follow:

· 1/2/20X3 Purchases on account: 500 units @\$6 = \$3,000

· 1/15/20X3 Sales on account: 300 units @ \$8.50 = \$2,550

· 1/20/20X3 Purchases on Account: 200 units @ 5 = \$1,000

· 1/25/20X3 Sales on Account: 300 units @ \$8.50 = \$2,550

The company president examined the computer-generated journal entries for these transactions and was confused by the absence of a Purchases account.

a. Duplicate the journal entries that would have appearedon the computer printout under FIFO & LIFO

b. Calculate the balance in the firm’s Inventory account under each method.

c. Briefly explain the absence of the Purchases account to the company president.

4. Inventory valuation methods: computations and concepts.

Wild Riders Surfboard Company began business on January 1 of the current year. Purchases of surfboards were as follows:

Date Quantity Unit Cost Total Cost

3-Jan 100 \$125 \$12,500

3-Apr 200 \$135 \$27,000

3-Jun 100 \$145 \$14,500

3-Jul 100 \$155 \$15,500

Total 500 \$69,500

Wild Riders sold 400 boards at \$250 per board on the dates listed below. The company uses a perpetual inventory system.

Date Quantity Sold Unit Price Total Sales

17-Mar 50 \$250 \$12,500

17-May 75 \$250 \$18,750

10-Aug 275 \$250 \$68,750

Total 400 \$100,000

Instructions

a. Calculate cost of goods sold, ending inventory, and gross profit under each of the following inventory valuation methods:

· First-in, first-out

· Last-in, first-out

· Weighted average

b. Which of the three methods would be chosen if management’s goal is to

(1) produce an up-to-date inventory valuation on the balance sheet?

(2) show the lowest net income for tax purposes?

5. Depreciation methods. Mike Davis Enterprises purchased a delivery van for \$40,000 in January 20X7. The van was estimated to have a service life of 5 years and a resid­ual value of \$6,000. The company is planning to drive the van 20,000 miles annually. Compute depreciation expense for 20X8 by using each of the following methods:

a. Units-of-output, assuming 17,000 miles were driven during 20X8

b. Straight-line

c. Double-declining-balance

6. Depreciation computations. Alpha Alpha Alpha, a college fraternity, purchased a new heavy-duty washing machine on January 1, 20X3. The machine, which cost \$2,000, had an estimated residual value of \$100 and an estimated service life of 4 years (1,800 washing cycles). Calculate the following:

a. The machine’s book value on December 31, 20X5, assuming use of the straight-line depreciation method

b. Depreciation expense for 20X4, assuming use of the units-of-output depreciation method. Actual washing cycles in 20X4 totaled 500.

c. Accumulated depreciation on December 31, 20X5, assuming use of the double-declining-balance depreciation method.

7. Depreciation computations: change in estimate. Aussie Imports purchased a specialized piece of machinery for \$50,000 on January 1, 20X3. At the time of acquisition, the machine was estimated to have a service life of 5 years (25,000 operating hours) and a residual value of \$5,000. During the 5 years of operations (20X3 – 20X7), the machine was used for 5,100, 4,800, 3,200, 6,000, and 5,900 hours, respectively.

Instructions

a. Compute depreciation for 20X3 – 20X7 by using the following methods: straight line, units of output, and double-declining-balance.

b. On January 1, 20X5, management shortened the remaining service life of the machine to 15 months. Assuming use of the straight-line method, compute the company’s depreciation expense for 20X5.

c. Briefly describe what you would have done differently in part (a) if Aussie Imports had paid \$47,800 for the machinery rather than \$50,000 In addition, assume that the company incurred \$800 of freight charges \$1,400 for machine setup and testing, and \$300 for insurance during the first year of use.
