Which of the following Intangible assets are amortized? Which are not? Trademark, Franchise, Patent, Copyright, Goodwill Amortized Not Amortized 6.

What is the difference between an intangible asset with an indefinite life and one with a finite life? a. Indefinite allocates cost to the accounting period, finite does not b. Indefinite reviews trademarks, copyrights, and patents, finite reviews goodwill and franchises c.

Cost of the fixed asset, useful life, and book value c. Useful life, book value, and number of years asset will be used over True or False __T_ Intangible assets include things like patents, copyrights, and franchises. The expense associated with these is amortization expense __F- financing decision so it isn’t included_ Interest paid on a debt is viewed as resulting from a decision to acquire an asset so it is included in the purchase price. __F- CANNOT_ The accumulated depreciation over the life of an asset can exceed depreciable cost. __T_ Depreciation can be defined as the cost of a tangible asset to expense over the asset’s useful life. __T_ measuring a fixed asset expenditure, ex. rebuilding a truck’s engine, is called capitalization. __F- falls in the Other expenditures category. Expense is not included as a part of the asset’s cost_ Measuring a fixed asset expenditure, ex. Changing the oil in a truck, is called capitalization. __F- beginning- before the month is halfway over_When recording partial th depreciation on the 12 of the month, the purchase is recorded at the end of the month in the journal entry when determining depreciation. __T_Book Value = Cost – Accumulated Depreciation. _T__ Natural Resources include things like oil, timber, and coal. The expense associated with the purchase of these is known as depletion. __T_ Recording assets at cost is based on what it cost to acquire the asset and what it cost to prepare it for use. _T__ Straight line has a constant depreciation, declining balance has an accelerated cost to depreciation expense, and units of production is only measured by the asset’s use. __F- units of production doesn’t make a difference because it’s based on machine use_ When determining partial year depreciation, the straight-line and units of production methods have to recalculate, declining balance method does not. _F- loss__A gain is when the book value is less than what a company sells an asset for. _F-gain_A loss is when the book value is greater than what a company sells an asset for. __T_Operating Assets are long lived assets that are used for normal operating expenses and are not sold to customers. __T__The useful life of an asset is the period of time over which the company anticipates benefiting from the use of an asset. Problems: A company acquired a new machine for operating use. They paid $20,000 cash and signed a 1 year 10% note for $80,000. Freight charges were incurred on account of $2,900 and $5,300 cash was paid for installation. Supplies and labor cost $800 and $1,500 respectively. 1. What is the cost of the machine? 20,000 + 80,000 + 2900 + 5300 + 800 + 1500= 110500 2. What will the journal entry look like for this purchase? Equipment 110,500 Cash 25300 (20,000 + 5300) Notes payable 80,000 Accs payable 2900 Supplies 800 Wages Payable 1500 A company purchases a machine for 50,000 on Jan 1. The expected worth is 5,000 at the end of 5 years. 1. Using the straight line method, calculate the rate of depreciation of this machine. 1/5= 20% depreciation rate over the next five years 2. Compute the annual amount of depreciation expense using the straight-line method. Cost- 50,000 Residual value – 5,000 Useful life – 5 years Cost- residual / useful life 50,000-5000/5 = $9,000 depreciation expense 3. What will be the amount of accumulated depreciation of this machine if it has used up 4 of it’s five years of useful life? 9,000 X 4 = 36,000 4. If the machine had been bought in June and not January, how would the Depreciation expense differ in it’s first year of use? Difference between Jan and June is 6 months. So (Depreciation cost / 5) X (6/12) ( ( 50,000 – 5,000) / 5) X (6/12) 4,500 PPE, net 12/31/10 87711 PPE, net 12/31/11 88434 Acc Depr 127192 Net Sales 110875 Depr Exp 14991 1. Calculate the fixed asset turnover ratio. Net sales / average net fixed assets 110,875/( (87711 + 88434)/2) = 1.26 times 2. Calculate the average age of the fixed asset Acc Depr / Depr expense 127192 / 14991 = 8.48 years A patent was acquired for 40,000 and is expected to have a 10 year useful life span. Calculate the amortization expense for this intangible asset. 40,000 / 10 = 4,000 A trademark was acquired for 50,000 and is expected to have a 30 year useful life span. Calculate the amortization expense for this intangible asset. No amortization expense can be calculated because trademarks do not have a legal life. More Vocab __declining Balance Method a. Selling/ retiring an asset __a__Voluntary Expenditure b. larger depreciation expense in early years. Double declining rate and uses this to determine the depreciation expense. _c__Involuntary Expenditure c. destroyed, lost asset __d__ Units of Production depreciation expense d. depreciation cost per unit / actual use of asset
