Exercise 10-2

Martin Buber Co. purchased land as a factory site for $400,000. The process of tearing down two old buildings on the site and constructing the factory required 6 months.

The company paid $42,000 to raze the old buildings and sold salvaged lumber and brick for $6,300. Legal fees of $1,850 were paid for title investigation and drawing the purchase contract. Martin Buber paid $2,200 to an engineering firm for a land survey, and $68,000 for drawing the factory plans. The land survey had to be made before definitive plans could be drawn. Title insurance on the property cost $1,500, and a liability insurance premium paid during construction was $900. The contractor’s charge for construction was $2,740,000. The company paid the contractor in two installments: $1,200,000 at the end of 3 months and $1,540,000 upon completion. Interest costs of $170,000 were incurred to finance the construction.

Determine the cost of the land and the cost of the building as they should be recorded on the books of Martin Buberk Co. Assume that the land survey was for the building.

Exercise 10-23

Plant assets often require expenditures subsequent to acquisition. It is important that they be accounted for properly. Any errors will affect both the balance sheets and income statements for a number of years.

For each of the following items, indicate whether the expenditure should be capitalized or expensed in the period incurred.



(a) Improvement.

(b) Replacement of a minor broken part on a machine.

(c) Expenditure that increases the useful life of an existing asset.

(d) Expenditure that increases the efficiency and effectiveness of a productive asset but does not increase its salvage value.

(e)  Expenditure that increases the efficiency and effectiveness of a productive asset and increases the asset’s salvage value.

(f) Expenditure that increases the quality of the output of the productive asset.

(g) Improvement to a machine that increased its fair market value and its production capacity by 30% without extending the machine’s useful life.

(h) Ordinary repairs.


Exercise 10-24

On December 31, 2014, Travis Tritt Inc. has a machine with a book value of $940,000. The original cost and related accumulated depreciation at this date are as follows.

Machine                                                           $1,300,000

Less: Accumulated depreciation                                  360,000

Book value                                                      $940,000


Depreciation is computed at $60,000 per year on a straight-line basis.

Presented below is a set of independent situations. For each independent situation, indicate the journal entry to be made to record the transaction. Make sure that depreciation entries are made to update the book value of the machine prior to its disposal.
