l.4 ACCOUNTING FOR DEPRECIATION

[CMA FOUNDATION D01, 4 Marks]


Question 1: Write short notes on Depreciation.
Answer: Depreciation is a loss in value of an Asset. It is measure of wearing out, consumption, or other
loss in value of Depreciable Asset arising from use and passage of time. As per IAS4 - Depreciation is the
allocation of the depreciable amount of an asset over its estimated useful life.
Depreciation Accounting: Depreciation Accounting is the process of allocation and not valuation.

[CMA INTER SY08, D12, 3 Marks]


Question 2: State the criteria which should be fulfilled by a depreciable asset as per AS6
Answer: Depreciable Assets are assets which are:
used during more than one year
having a limited useful life
held by an enterprise for use in :
o

the production or supply of goods and services

for renting to others

for administrative purposes

not for the purpose of sale in the ordinary course of business.

Question 3: What is depreciable amount?


Answer: Depreciable amount = historical cost scarp value
Depreciable amount of a depreciable asset should be allocated on a systematic basis to each accounting
period during its useful life.

[CMA INTER J09, 5 Marks]


Question 4: What are the objectives of charging depreciation and problems of measurement of
depreciation? Explain.
Answer: Prime objectives for providing Depreciation are:
1.

Correct income measurement: Depreciation should be charged for proper estimation of periodic
profit or loss.

2.

True position statement: Value of the fixed assets should be adjusted for depreciation charged in
order to depict the actual financial position.

Financial Accounting

4.1

3.

Funds for replacement: Generation of adequate funds in the hands of the business for replacement of
the asset at the end of its useful life.

4.

Ascertainment of true cost of production: For ascertaining the cost of the production, it is necessary
to charge depreciation as on item of cost of production.

Question 5: What is the nature of depreciation?


1.

Depreciation is non-cash operating expense which is to be provided whether there are profits or
losses.

2.

Depreciation is concerned with historical cost and not with the fluctuations in market price.

Question 6: What are the Causes of Depreciation?


1.

Physical wear and tear. [permanent and continuous decrease in the book value of fixed assets due to
use]

2.

Effluxion of time [Passage of time]

3.

Obsolescence [out-dated] [the economic deterioration by change in technology or taste or fashion]

4.

Depletion [physical deterioration of natural resources like ore deposits in mines, oil wells]

5.

Changes in economic environment

6.

Expiration of legal rights.

Question 7: What is amortization and dilapidation?


Answer: Amortization refers to the economic deterioration of intangible assets like goodwill, patent
obsolescence.
Dilapidation - In one sentence Dilapidation means a state of deterioration due to old age or long use.
This term refers to damage done to a building or other property during tenancy.

Question 8: What are the factors affecting Amount of Depreciation


1.

Historical Cost

2.

Expected Useful life

3.

Estimated Residual Value.

Note: All expenses incurred till the asset is put to use are treated as capital nature and hence form part of
historical cost.
Problems of measurement of depreciation are:
1.

Estimated useful life may be incorrect and misleading.

2.

Certain uncertain factors affect predetermined quantum of depreciation.

Question 9: What are the methods of recording depreciation?


Answer:
Two Methods of Recording Depreciation

By Charging to Asset A/c

By Creating Provision for Depreciation A/c

Depreciation is credited to Asset A/c

Depreciation

to

Asset appears at its Written down Value

Asset appears at its Original Cost.

(i.e. Cost less depreciation till date)

Question 10: Most Commonly Employed 2 Methods of Providing Depreciation


1.

Straight Line Method (SLM)

2.

Written Down Value (WDV) Method

Question 11: Write short note disclosure requirements as per AS6


Answer:
The historical cost of each class of assets;
Total depreciation for the period.
The related accumulated depreciation;
Depreciation methods used; and
Depreciation rates (if they are different from the principal rates specified in the statute governing the
enterprise.)

Question 12: Distinction between Straight Line Method and Written Down Value Method
Straight Line Method differs from Written Down Value Method in the following respects:

Question 14: When can a Change in Method of Depreciation be made?


Answer: If adoption of new method is required
1.

By Statue.

2.

To comply with accounting standard.

3.

To have more appropriate preparation & presentation of financial statements of enterprise

Question 15: Write a note on accounting for the retrospective effect in case of change in method of
depreciation.
Answer: Depreciation should be recalculated as per new method from the date of asset coming into use.
Treatment of Deficiency: The deficiency should be debited to Statement of Profit & Loss
Treatment of Surplus: The surplus should be credited to Statement of Profit & Loss.

[CMA FOUNDATION D02, 4 Marks]


Question 16: Distinguish between depreciation and reserve.
Answer: Depreciation is the process of allocating the cost of a Fixed Asset over its estimated useful life in
a rational and systematic manner, whereas Reserve is an appropriation of profit. Due to depreciation, net
profit is reduced but Reserve does not affect the net profit. Reserves are created to strengthen financial
position and to meet unforeseen losses, whereas depreciation is provided to ascertain the correct profit
and correct book value of fixed asset. Reserves are the undistributed profits and belong to the owners
equity. Depreciation is a rational estimate of a decline in the usefulness of an Asset due to consumption,
use, passage of time, technological changes etc.

PRACTICAL PROBLEMS

Calculation of Amount of Depreciation under SLM, WDV, DDM and SDY


Question 1: Calculate amount of depreciation under Straight Line Method, Written Down Value Method,
Sum of the Years Digits Method and Double Decline Method
Original Value of the Asset 65,000
False useful life is always shorter than physical life
False sinking fund considers interest for the reinvestment not as a charge but in annuity method of
depreciation, interest on investment in assets is considered as a charge.
3 True the amount of depreciation is accumulated in a separate fund called sinking fund.
4 False Both are the same methods. Depreciation is computed by applying a fixed rate on the diminish
balance which is known as written down value.
5 False They differ on the basis of time factor. 10% p.a. implies that time factor is to be considered while
calculating depreciation. Whereas simply 10% implies that time factor is immaterial for calculation.
6 True it is a non-cash expenses
7 False Land is not a depreciable asset except if the useful life of the land is given.

Calculation of Amount of Depreciation under depletion method


Question 2: Pensive Corporations subsidiary Pensive Oil drills a well with the intention of extracting oil
from a known reservoir. It incurs the following costs related to the acquisition of property and
development of the site:

2,80,000

Road construction

23,000

Drill pad construction

48,000

Drilling fees

1,92,000

Total

5,43,000

In addition, Pensive Oil estimates that it will incur a site restoration cost of 57,000 once extraction is
complete, so the total depletion base of the property is 600,000.
Pensives geologists estimate that the proven oil reserves that are accessed by the well are 400,000 barrels.
