Prepare journal entries on 07/01/13 and 07/31/13.
A company purchased medical equipment for $77,000 on July 1, 2013. It estimated that the equipment will have a salvage value of $7,000 and its useful life will be 7 years.
Assuming that the company’s year ends on December 31, each year, what will be the depreciation expense for the years 2013, and 2014 assuming straight-line depreciation?
- Invoice amount $1,000
Terms 1/10, net/30
The amount to be remitted to the supplier when paid within the discount period is calculated as follows:
Cash discount of 1% can be availed if the invoice is paid within the discount period (10 days).
So, discount 1% on $1,000 = 1,000 x 1% =$10
The amount to be remitted to the supplier = invoice amount – cash discount
=$1,000 -$10 =$990
Hence, the amount to be remitted t o the supplier when invoice is paid within the discount period is $990.
Note: Net/30 indicates that if the invoice is not paid within the discount period, then the entire $1,000 has to be paid within a period of 30 days.
- General Liability Insurance premium paid for 1 year on July 1, 2013 is $12,000
Monthly premium =$12,000/12 =$1,000

- Calculation of depreciation expense for the year 2013, and 2014 assuming straight-line depreciation is as follows:
Cost of medical equipment $77,000
Salvage value $7,000
Useful life 7 years
Date of purchase July 1, 2013
Depreciation under straight line method = depreciation base/ useful life
Depreciation base = cost – salvage value
Annual depreciation =$10,000
Depreciation expense for the year ended December 31, 2013 = depreciation from the date of purchase to December 31, 2013
Since date of purchase is July1, 2013, depreciation expense for the year ended December 31, 2013 is to be provided for 6 months.
Annual deprecation =$10,000
Depreciation for 6 months =$10,000 x 6/12 =$5,000
Hence, depreciation for the year ended December 31, 2013 =$5,000
Depreciation expense for the year ended December 31, 2014 = $10,000
(full year depreciation for the period January 1, 2014 – December 31, 2014)
