Depreciation expense for the vehicles has not been recognized. The useful life of the vehicles is 8 years with a salvage value of €100. Double Declining Balance Depreciation is applied to vehicles and rounded to the nearest €.

  • Vehicles €7200

  • Accum Depreciation Vehicles €824
Tutors Answer is (7200 - 824)*0.25 = 1594



Where is the 0.25 coming from?

  • TakE the 7,200 asset value and subtracting the 100 salvage value, to get 7100 subject to depreciation. Under the straight-line method, you would take 7100 and divide it by the number of years the asset is in service, or 8 years. Depreciation expense would ben 887 each year.
  • Take the 887 SL depreciation expense and figure out what it is as a percentage of the total amount subject to depreciation, which is 7100 in this case and, you'll arrive at 0.125, or 12.5 percent.
  • Now, for the 200 percent method, multiply by 2 to get to 25 percent. If you had been using the 150 percent double declining depreciation method, you would multiply by 1.5.
