Example text

Long-Term Debt $ 300 $ 350 18. Total Liabilities $1,198 $ 969 19. Preferred Stock 150 150 20. Common Stock 497 497 21. Retained Earnings 1,357 1,247 (45) 22. Stockholders’ Equity $2,004 $1,894 23. Total Liabilities and Stockholders’ Equity $3,202 $2,863 25 THE BALANCE SHEET ? Reserves ? Prepaid Expenses Let’s review one example. Suppose a company buys equipment (makes a capital expenditure) for $100,000. The company expects the equipment to last (provide benefits) for five years. This is called the equipment’s estimated useful life.

Double-declining balance ? Sum of the years’ digits ? Per-unit calculation Double-Declining-Balance. Notice that in straight-line depreciation, depreciation expense for an asset with a five-year life is 20 percent (100 percent divided by 5 years) times the gross book value. ) In the double-declining-balance method, the percentage is doubled, in this case to 40 percent, but the percentage is multiplied by the net book value. The calculation of the depreciation expense based upon a gross book value of $100,000 is as follows: Depreciation Year 1 2 3 4 5 Expense Net Book Value ‫ ן‬40% $100,000 ‫ ן‬40% ‫ ס‬$ $ 60,000 ‫ ן‬40% ‫ ס‬$ $ 36,000 ‫ ן‬40% ‫ ס‬$ $ 21,600 ‫ נ‬2 ‫ ס‬$ $ 40,000 24,000 14,400 10,800 10,800 $100,000 Remaining Balance $100,000 ‫ מ‬$40,000 ‫ ס‬$60,000 $ 60,000 ‫ מ‬$24,000 ‫ ס‬$36,000 $ 36,000 ‫ מ‬$14,400 ‫ ס‬$21,600 $ 21,600 ‫ מ‬$10,800 ‫ ס‬$10,800 $ 10,800 ‫ מ‬$10,800 ‫ ס‬0 36 UNDERSTANDING FINANCIAL INFORMATION Notice that the first year’s depreciation expense is double the amount that it would have been using the straight-line method.

Liabilities (line 18) Liabilities are the amounts that the company owes to others for products and services it has purchased and amounts that it has borrowed and therefore must repay. Current liabilities include all money that the company owes that must be paid within one year from the date of the balance sheet. Long-term liabilities are those that are due more than one year from the date of the balance sheet. Included in current liabilities are accounts payable, short-term bank loans, and accrued expenses (which we have included in other current liabilities).
