1.
For plant assets, the cost principle means that cost consists of all expenditures necessary to acquire
the asset and make it ready for its intended use.
2.
Examples of land improvements include driveways, parking lots, fences, and underground sprinklers.
3.
(a) When only the land is to be used, all demolition and removal costs of the building less any
proceeds from salvaged materials are necessary expenditures to make the land ready for its
intended use.
(b) When both the land and building are to be used, necessary costs of the building include
remodeling expenditures and the cost of replacing or repairing the roofs, floors, wiring, and
plumbing.
4.
You should explain to the president that depreciation is a process of allocating the cost of a plant
asset to expense over its service (useful) life in a rational and systematic manner. Recognition of
depreciation is not intended to result in the accumulation of cash for replacement of the asset.
5.
(a) Residual value, also called salvage value, is the expected value of the asset at the end of its
useful life.
(b) Residual value is used in determining depreciation in each of the methods except the decliningbalance method.
6.
(a) Useful life is expressed in years under the straight-line method and in units of activity under
the units-of-activity method.
(b) The pattern of periodic depreciation expense over useful life is constant under the straight-line
method and variable under the units-of-activity method.
7.
The effects of the three methods on annual depreciation expense are: Straight-line—constant
amount; units of activity—varying amount; declining-balance—decreasing amounts.
8.
Component depreciation is a method of allocating the cost of a plant asset into separate
parts based on the estimated useful lives of each component. IFRS requires an entity to
use component depreciation whenever significant parts of a plant asset have significantly
different useful lives.
9.
A revision of depreciation is made in current and future years but not retroactively. The rationale
is that continual restatement of prior periods would adversely affect confidence in the financial
statements.
10.
Revaluation is an accounting procedure that adjusts plant assets to fair value at the
reporting date. Revaluation must be applied annually to assets that are experiencing rapid
price changes.

12.
Revenue expenditures are ordinary repairs made to maintain the operating efficiency and productive
life of the asset. Capital expenditures are additions and improvements made to increase operating
efficiency, productive capacity, or useful life of the asset. Revenue expenditures are recognized
as expenses when incurred; capital expenditures are generally debited to the plant asset affected.
In a sale of plant assets, the book value of the asset is compared to the proceeds received from the
sale. If the proceeds of the sale exceed the book value of the plant asset, a gain on disposal occurs. If
the proceeds of the sale are less than the book value of the plant asset sold, a loss on disposal occurs.
13. The plant asset and its accumulated depreciation should continue to be reported on the
statement of financial position without further depreciation adjustment until the asset is retired.
Reporting the asset and related accumulated depreciation on the statement of financial position
informs the reader of the financial statements that the asset is still in use. However, once an asset is
fully depreciated, even if it is still being used, no additional depreciation should be taken. In no
situation can the accumulated depreciation on the plant asset exceed its cost.
14.
Extractable natural resources consist of underground deposits of oil, gas, and minerals. These
long-lived productive assets have two distinguishing characteristics: they are physically extracted
in operations in or near the earth’s crust, and they are replaceable only by an act of nature.
15.
Depletion is the allocation of the cost of extractable resources to expense in a rational and
systematic manner over the resource’s useful life. It is computed by multiplying the depletion cost
per unit by the number of units extracted and sold.
16.
The terms depreciation, depletion, and amortization are all concerned with allocating the cost of
an asset to expense over the periods benefited. Depreciation refers to allocating the cost of a
plant asset to expense, depletion to recognizing the cost of an extractable resource as expense,
and amortization to allocating the cost of an intangible asset to expense.
17.
The intern is not correct. The cost of an intangible asset should be amortized over that asset’s
useful life (the period of time when operations are benefited by use of the asset). In addition,
some intangibles have indefinite lives and therefore are not amortized at all.
18.
The favorable attributes which could result in goodwill include exceptional management, desirable
location, good customer relations, skilled employees, high-quality products, and harmonious relations
with labor unions.
19.
Goodwill is the value of many favorable attributes that are intertwined in the business enterprise.
Goodwill can be identified only with the business as a whole and, unlike other assets, cannot be
sold separately. Goodwill can only be sold if the entire business is sold. And, if goodwill appears
on the statement of financial position, it means the company has purchased another company for
more than the fair value of its net assets.

Questions Chapter 9 (Continued)
20.
Goodwill is recorded only when there is a transaction that involves the purchase of an entire
business. Goodwill is the excess of cost over the fair value of the net assets (assets less liabilities)
acquired. The recognition of goodwill without an exchange transaction would lead to subjective
valuations which would reduce the reliability of financial statements.
21.
Research and development costs present several accounting problems. It is sometimes difficult
to assign the costs to specific projects, and there are uncertainties in identifying the extent and
timing of future benefits. As a result, IFRS requires that research costs be recorded as an expense
when incurred. Development costs incurred prior to technological feasibility are also expensed
but development costs incurred after technological feasibility are capitalized.
22. Both types of development expenditures relate to the creation of new products but one is
expensed and the other is capitalized. Development costs incurred before a new product
achieves technological feasibility are recorded as development expenses and appear as part
of operating expenses on the income statement.
Cost incurred after technological feasibility are recorded as development costs and appear as an
intangible asset on the statement of financial position.
23.
McDonald’s asset turnover ratio is computed as follows:
Net sales
Average total assets
=
\$20.5 billion
= .71 times
\$28.9 billion
24. Since Resco uses the straight-line depreciation method, its depreciation expense will be lower in
the early years of an asset’s useful life as compared to using an accelerated method. Yapan’s
depreciation expense in the early years of an asset’s useful life will be higher as compared to
the straight-line method. Resco’s net income will be higher than Yapan’s in the first few years of
the asset’s useful life. And, the reverse will be true late in an asset’s useful life.
25. Yes, tax regulations often allow a company to use a different depreciation method on the tax
return than is used in preparing financial statements. Lopez Corporation uses an accelerated
depreciation method for tax purposes to minimize its income taxes and thereby the cash outflow
for taxes.
26. By selecting a longer estimated useful life, May Corp. is spreading the plant asset’s cost over a
longer period of time. The depreciation expense reported in each period is lower and net income is
higher. Won’s choice of a shorter estimated useful life will result in higher depreciation expense
reported in each period and lower net income.
27. Expensing these costs will make current period income lower but future period income higher because
there will be no additional depreciation expense in future periods. If the costs are ordinary repairs,
they should be expensed.

*28. When assets are exchanged, the gain or loss on disposal is computed as the difference between
the book value and the fair value of the asset given up at the time of exchange.
*29. Yes, Tatum should recognize a gain equal to the difference between the fair value of the old
machine and its book value. If the fair value of the old machine is less than its book value, Tatum
should recognize a loss equal to the difference between the two amounts.

SOLUTIONS TO BRIEF EXERCISES
BRIEF EXERCISE 9-1
All of the expenditures should be included in the cost of the land. Therefore,
the cost of the land is \$81,000, or (\$70,000 + \$3,000 + \$2,500 + \$2,000 + \$3,500).
BRIEF EXERCISE 9-2
The cost of the truck is &pound;31,900 (cash price &pound;30,000 + sales tax &pound;1,500 + painting
and lettering &pound;400). The expenditures for insurance and motor vehicle license
should not be added to the cost of the truck.
BRIEF EXERCISE 9-3
Depreciable cost of \$36,000, or (\$42,000 – \$6,000). With a four-year useful life,
annual depreciation is \$9,000, or (\$36,000 &divide; 4). Under the straight-line method,
depreciation is the same each year. Thus, depreciation is \$9,000 for both the
first and second years.
BRIEF EXERCISE 9-4
It is likely that management requested this accounting treatment to boost
reported net income. Land is not depreciated; thus, by reporting land
at HK\$1,200,000 above its actual value the company increased yearly
 HK\$1,200,000 
or the reduction in depreciation
income by HK\$60,000, 
 20 years 
expense. This practice is not ethical because management is knowingly
misstating asset values.

DO IT! 9-1
The following four items are expenditures necessary to acquire the truck
and get it ready for use:
Negotiated purchase price .......................................................
Installation of special shelving ...............................................
Painting and lettering.................................................................
Sales tax .........................................................................................
Total paid...............................................................................
&pound;24,000
1,100
900
1,300
&pound;27,300
Thus, the cost of the truck is &pound;27,300. The payments for the motor vehicle
license and for the insurance are operating costs and are expensed in the
first year of the truck’s life.
DO IT! 9-2
Depreciation expense = Cost – Residual value = \$15,000 – \$1,000 = \$1,750
Useful life

SOLUTIONS TO EXERCISES
EXERCISE 9-1
(a) Under the cost principle, the acquisition cost for a plant asset includes
all expenditures necessary to acquire the asset and make it ready for its
intended use. For example, the cost of factory machinery includes the
purchase price, freight costs paid by the purchaser, insurance costs
during transit, and installation costs.

The cost of the driveways and parking lot (€14,000) should be debited
to Land Improvements.
EXERCISE 9-4
1. False. Depreciation is a process of cost allocation, not asset valuation.
2. True.
3. False. The book value of a plant asset may be quite different from its
fair value.
4. False. Depreciation applies to three classes of plant assets: land improvements, buildings, and equipment.
5. False. Depreciation does not apply to land because its usefulness and
revenue-producing ability generally remain intact over time.
6. True.
7. False. Recognizing depreciation on an asset does not result in an accumulation of cash for replacement of the asset.
8. True.
9. False. Depreciation expense is reported on the income statement, and
accumulated depreciation is reported as a deduction from plant assets on
the statement of financial position.
10. False. Three factors affect the computation of depreciation: cost, useful
life, and residual value (also called salvage value).

Depreciation cost per unit = (R\$160,000 – R\$10,000)/125,000 units =
R\$1.20 per unit.

2011: R\$1.20 X 45,000 = R\$54,000

(c) The declining-balance method reports the highest amount of depreciation
expense the first year while the straight-line method reports the lowest.
In the fourth year, the straight-line method reports the highest amount of
depreciation expense while the declining-balance method reports the
lowest.
These facts occur because the declining-balance method is an accelerated depreciation method in which the largest amount of depreciation
is recognized in the early years of the asset’s life. If the straight-line
method is used, the same amount of depreciation expense is recognized
each year. Therefore, in the early years less depreciation expense will be
recognized under this method than under the declining-balance method
while more will be recognized in the later years.
The amount of depreciation expense recognized using the units-of-activity
method is dependent on production, so this method could recognize more
or less depreciation expense than the other two methods in any year
depending on output.
No matter which of the three methods is used, the same total amount
of depreciation expense will be recognized over the four-year period.

FINANCIAL REPORTING PROBLEM
(a) Property, plant, and equipment is reported net, book value, on the
December 27, 2008, statement of financial position at &pound;1,761,000,000.
The cost of the property, plant, and equipment is &pound;3,330,000,000 as
shown in Note 16.
(b) Depreciation expense is calculated on a straight-line basis over an asset’s
estimated useful live. (see Note 1, item q).
(c) Depreciation expense was:
2008:
2007:
&pound;161,000,000.
&pound;138,000,000.
Amort: &pound;35,000,000 in 2008
2008:
2007:
&pound;500,000,000.
&pound;409,000,000.
(e) Cadbury’s statement of financial position reports &pound;2,288,000,000 for
goodwill, &pound;1,598,000,000 of acquisition intangibles, and &pound;87,000,000 of
software intangibles. In Note 15, the company indicates that acquisition
intangibles consist of brands.

(b) The asset turnover ratio measures how efficiently a company uses its
assets to generate sales. It shows the dollars of sales generated by each
dollar invested in assets. Nestl&eacute;’s asset turnover ratio (.99) was 87%
higher than Cadbury’s (.53). Therefore, it can be concluded that Nestl&eacute; was
more efficient during 2008 in utilizing assets to generate sales.

(c) As shown above, when the two companies use the same depreciation
method, Lingo Company is more profitable than Reimer Company. When
the two companies are using different depreciation methods, Lingo
Company has more cash than Reimer Company for two reasons:

(For Instructor Use Only)
BYP 9-4 (Continued)
(1) its earnings are generating more cash than the earnings of Reimer
Company, and (2) depreciation expense has no effect on cash. Cash
generated by operations can be arrived at by adding depreciation expense
to net income. If this is done, it can be seen that Lingo Company’s operations generate more cash (\$229,000 + \$99,320 = \$328,320) than Reimer
Company’s (\$262,400 + \$52,500 = \$314,900). Based on the above analysis,
Mrs. Vogts should buy Lingo Company. It not only is in a better financial
position than Reimer Company, but it is also more profitable.

Re:
American Exploration Company footnote
American Exploration Company accounts for its oil and gas activities using the
successful efforts approach. Under this method, only the costs of successful
exploration are included in the cost of the extractable resource, and the
costs of unsuccessful explorations are expensed.
Depletion is determined using the units-of-activity method. Under this method,
a depletion cost per unit is computed based on the total number of units
expected to be extracted. Depletion expense for the year is determined by
multiplying the units extracted and sold by the depletion cost per unit.

ETHICS CASE
(a) The stakeholders in this situation are:
Dennis Harwood, president of Buster Container Company.
Shelly McGlone, controller.
The shareholders of Buster Container Company.
Potential investors in Buster Container Company.
(b) The intentional misstatement of the life of an asset or the amount of the
residual value is unethical for whatever the reason. There is nothing per
se unethical about changing the estimate either of the life of an asset or
of an asset’s residual value if the change is an attempt to better match
cost and revenues and is a better allocation of the asset’s depreciable
cost over the asset’s useful life. In this case, it appears from the
controller’s reaction that the revisions in the life are intended only to
improve earnings and, therefore, are unethical.
The fact that the competition uses a longer life on its equipment is not
necessarily relevant. The competition’s maintenance and repair policies
and activities may be different. The competition may use its equipment
fewer hours a year (e.g., one shift rather than two shifts daily) than Buster
Container Company.
(c) Income before income taxes in the year of change is increased \$140,000
by implementing the president’s proposed changes.
