Reducing balance method is appropriate for assets which have long term useful life.

Question 9.
Give the formulas to find out annual depreciation (D) under Fixed Instalment method.
Formula no. 1 : D = $$\frac{\mathrm{C}-\mathrm{S}}{\mathrm{N}}$$

Answer the following question in brief:

(1) Harshil Limited purchased a machine on 1-4-2018 for ₹ 1,90,000. Installation expenses amounted to ₹ 15,000 and carriage was ₹ 5,000. The estimated useful life of the machine is 10 years, while its scrap value is estimated to be ₹ 40,000. Calculate the amount of depreciation as per the straight-line method.
Annual depreciation:
D = $$\frac{C-S}{N}$$
Where,
D = Amount of annual depreciation =?
C = Cost price = purchase price + Installation expenses + Carriage charges
= ₹ 1,90,000 + ₹ 15,000 + ₹ 5,000 = ₹ 2,10,000
S = Scrap value = ₹ 40,000
N = Total life in a years = 10 years
D = $$\frac{2,10,000-40,000}{10}=\frac{1,70,000}{10}$$ = ₹ 17,000
∴ The amount of annual deprectatlon is ₹ 17,000.

2. One machine was purchased on 1-4-’11. On 1-4-’17 the opening balance of machine account is 32,000. DepreciatIon on machine is charged at 10 % under straight-line method. Write journal entry for depreciation on 31-3-’18.
First of all. in this sum, cost price of machine will be ascertained. If balance of machine is ₹ 40, the cost price is ₹ 100.
∴ If balance of machine is ₹ 32,000, the cost price is (₹)
= $$\frac{32,000 \times 100}{40}$$ = ₹ 80,000
∴ Cost price of machine = ₹ 80,000
Annual Decleration D = $$\frac{\mathrm{C} \times \mathrm{R}}{100}$$
= $$\frac{80,000 \times 10}{100}$$
= ₹ 8,000  3. One machine was purchased on 1-4-’16 for ₹ 50,000. Depreciation on machine is charged at 10 % under reducing balance method. Write journal entry for depreciation on 31-3-’18.
Necessary computation of depreciation amount: Journal entry of depreciation: 4. On 1-4 -‘17 book value of machine was ₹ 86,000. Depreciation is calculated at 20 % under reducing balance method. This machine was sold at 40 % profit on book value on 31- 12 -‘17. From this Information write journal entry for sale of machine.
Ascertain selling price of machine: Journal entry for sale of machine:

 Date Particulars L. F. Debit ₹ Credit ₹ 31-12-17 Bank A/c Dr 1,02.340 Depreciation A/c Dr 12,900 To Profit and Loss A/c 29,240 To Machinc A/c (Being machine sold at 40% profit.) 86,000

5. Milan Limited charges depreciation on its assets at 8 % under straight-line method. If annual depreciation amount is 12,800, determine cost price of machines.
Cost price of machines:
Annual depreciation D = $$\frac{\mathrm{C} \times \mathrm{R}}{100}$$
∴ Cost price of machines C = $$\frac{\mathrm{D} \times 100}{\mathrm{R}}$$
Where, D = 12,800; R = 8 and C =?
= $$\frac{12,800 \times 100}{8}$$ = 1,60,000
∴Cost price of machines = ₹ 1,60,000

6. Biju Limited has purchased a machine on 1-4-’16. By charging depreciation at 10% under reducing balance method, ₹ 14,400 is recorded as depreciation on 31-3-’18, determine cost price of machine.
Cost price of machine : Here, amount of depreciation on 31-3-48 is given ₹ 14,400. =$$\frac{14,400 \times 100}{9}$$ = 1,60,000
∴ Cost price of machine = ₹ 1,60,000
