Straight-Line Depreciation

ACT300 Principles of Accoutning I
Module 6: Critical Thinking Template Option 1 (Depreciation Template)
Straight-Line Depreciation Input amounts Record journal entry for depreciation expense for the third year:
Cost $0
Salvage value 0 Debit Credit
Depreciable cost $0 Dec. 31 Depreciation Expense
Useful life 0 years Accumulated Depreciation – Equipment
Useful life in units of production 0 To record annual depreciation
Record journal entry for asset disposal in the fourth year:
Straight line method
Formula Cost – Salvage Value * * Depreciable cost = Cost – Salvage Value Debit Credit
Useful life in years Dec. 31 Cash
Accumulated Depreciation
= 0 Loss on disposal
Equipment
To record disposal of equipment
Annual depreciation expense= 0
Also, compute the straight line depreciation rate. The formula is 100% divided by the useful life in years
Compute the straight line depreciation rate below:

Units-of-Production

ACT300 Principles of Accoutning I
Module 6: Critical Thinking Template Option 1 (Depreciation Template)
Units of Production Depreciation Input amounts
Cost $0
Salvage value 0 Record journal entry for depreciation expense for the third year:
Depreciable cost $0
Useful life 0 years
Useful life in units of production = 0 Debit Credit
Dec. 31 Depreciation Expense
Accumulated Depreciation – Equipment
Units of Production To record annual depreciation
Step 1:
Depreciation per unit Cost – Salvage Value * * Depreciable cost = Cost – Salvage Value Record journal entry for asset disposal in the fourth year:
Useful life in units of production
Debit Credit
Dec. 31 Cash
Accumulated Depreciation
Loss on disposal
Depreciation per unit = $ – 0 Equipment
To record disposal of equipment
Step 2:
Depreciation expense Depreciation per unit x Units of production*
= 0.00 x 0
Depreciation expense = $ – 0

Double Declining Balance Depreciation Input amounts
Cost $0
Salvage value 0 Record journal entry for depreciation expense for the third year:
Depreciable cost $0
Useful life 0 years
Useful life in miles 0 Debit Credit
Dec. 31 Depreciation Expense
Accumulated Depreciation – Equipment

Step 1:
Straight Line Rate = 100% * Depreciable cost = Cost – Salvage Value

Straight line depreciation rate =
Step 2:
Double-declining-balance rate 2 x Straight-line rate
= 2 x 0%
Double-declining-balance rate 0%
