Q 9.32: Xenon Tech acquired a patent on January 1st, 2013, for $26,400. The patent was estimated to have a useful life of 12 years. On July 1st, 2017, the company incurred legal fees of $6,000 to successfully defend the patent in an infringement suit. How much amortization expense will Xenon Tech recognize on the Income Statement for the year ended December 31st, 2017?

$2,600 Intangible assets are amortized using the straight-line method. Original amortization was $2,200 ($26,400 ÷ 12) per year, current half-year amortization before the litigation was $1,100, and 4.5 years ($9,900) of amortization has accumulated up to the date of litigation. Book value is $16,500 ($26,400 – 9,900), and the legal fees are added to this amount for a new book value of $22,500. Dividing the new book value by the 7.5 remaining years of useful life results in $1,500 (= 3,000 ÷ 2) amortization for the second half of 2017. Adding this amount to the $1,100 of amortization from earlier in the year results in amortization expense of $2,600 for 2017.

Q 9.36: Voltage Industries, a calendar-year company, purchases equipment for $85,000 on January 2nd, 2017. The equipment’s expected useful life is five years, and the expected salvage value of the equipment is $5,000. What is the book value of the equipment on December 31st, 2018, if Voltage uses the double-declining-balance method?

$30,600 Ignoring the salvage value for the double- declining-balance method, the depreciation percentage per year is calculated by doubling the straight-line rate (100% ÷ 5 years = 20%; 20% × 2 = 40%. For year 1, depreciation expense is $34,000 ($85,000 × 40%). Subtracting the expense from the original cost yields a book value of $51,000 at the beginning of year 2. $51,000 × 40% = $20,400 (year 2 depreciation); subtracting the expense from the year 2 beginning book value ($51,000 – 20,400) results in the book value being $30,600 on December 31st, 2018.

Q 9.37: Jamison Industries disposed of two pieces of equipment in 2017. When they disposed of the first piece of equipment, they did not subtract a partial year of depreciation from the book value. However, when they disposed of the second piece of equipment, they did subtract a partial year of depreciation from the book value. Why did their calculation of book value differ for these two pieces of equipment?

The first was disposed of at the beginning of the fiscal year, whereas the second was disposed of later in the fiscal year. A partial year of depreciation must be subtracted from the book value of an asset when it is disposed of if the asset is sold sometime other than immediately after the start of a new fiscal year. Because the first piece of equipment did not have a partial year of depreciation subtracted from the book value, the equipment was likely sold at the beginning of the fiscal year. However, the second piece of equipment did have a partial year of depreciation subtracted from the book value, so it had to have been disposed of later in the year.

Q 9.40: Which depreciation method generally results in the lowest net income for the first year a plant asset is utilized?

double declining-balance
