 Straight Line Depreciation MethodZubair Sadat, MemberDear Junaid, Please refer to below the straight line depreciation method and schedule. On April 1, 2011, company XYZ has purchased an equipment at the cost of \$140,000. The equipment is estimated to have 5 years useful life. At the end of the 5th year the salvage value (residual value) will be \$20,000. Company XYZ recognizes depreciation to the nearest whole month. Calculate the depreciation expenses for 2011, 2012 and 2013 using the straight line depreciation method. Depreciation for 2011 = (\$140,000 - \$20,000) x 1/5 x 9/12 = \$18,000 Depreciation for 2012 = (\$140,000 - \$20,000) x 1/5 x 12/12 = \$24,000 Depreciation for 2013 = (\$140,000 - \$20,000) x 1/5 x 12/12 = \$24,000 If you have any questions, please contact meBest of luck!
