On December 31, 2011, before the books were closed, management and the accountant at Madrasa Inc. made the following determinations about three depreciable assets. 1. Depreciable asset A was purchased on January 2, 2008. It originally cost $540,000 and the straight-line method was chosen for depreciation. The asset was originally expected to be useful for 10 years and have no residual value. In 2011, the decision was made to change the depreciation method from straight-line to double-declining-balance, and the estimates relating to useful life and residual value remained unchanged. 2. Depreciable asset B was purchased on January 3, 2007. It originally cost $180,000 and the straight-line method was chosen for depreciation. The asset was expected to be useful for 15 years and have no residual value. In 2011, the decision was made to shorten this asset’s total life to nine years and to estimate the residual value at $3,000. 3. Depreciable asset C was purchased on January 5, 2007. The asset’s original cost was $160,000 and this amount was entirely expensed in 2007 in error. This particular asset has a 10-year useful life and no residual value.
