is clearly nonsense. You capitalise costs during the development and therefore the development is incomplete is not so clear. It covers the situation where you can capitalise some of the costs, up to the amount of future revenue but not all. The rest will be written off. the project will not be completed. No income is therefore likely. On grounds of prudence the costs will be written off.

£25,200 The cost of the machine is £28,000. Cataract has paid £23,000 in cash and has evidently agreed a trade-in value of £5,000 for the old machine. (The asset's NBV is irrelevant.) After one year, the net book value of the new machine is 90% of £28,000 = £25,200.

£1,500 loss on disposal The depreciable amount is £(22,000 – 1,000) = £21,000. This is to be written off over seven years (or 84 months). The monthly depreciation charge is therefore £250. £ Cost of asset 22,000 Accumulated depreciation (46 months × £250) 11,500 Net book value at date of disposal 10,500 Proceeds on disposal 9,000 Loss on disposal 1,500

This will produce a higher cost of sales figure and so a lower gross profit. The fixed float is known as the ‘imprest amount’. Debit entries decrease income and increase assets.
