Example text

Depreciation of the property must then be based on the new, higher revalued figure in the balance sheet, using the same principles that you learned about earlier. For this reason you might see the statement ‘tangible fixed assets are shown at cost or valuation, less accumulated depreciation’. You might think that it is strange to depreciate properties, but they do not last forever! Most types of property are depreciated over a long time period of, say, 50 years. 3 indicates that the company depreciates its properties over 50 years.

Profits would be distorted, and managers and others who are using the accounts would not find it easy to monitor the business’s performance. qxd 1/2/06 4:41 PM Page 50 £12,000 will be shown in the balance sheet at the end of Year 2 under tangible non-current assets. The value of the delivery van used up by the business will thus be shared out over the years that receive the benefit. Accounting in a Nutshell Charge to income statement £ 50 Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 5,000 5,000 5,000 5,000 20,000 Net book value shown in balance sheet at end of year £ 17,000 12,000 7,000 2,000 Notice that the final value shown in the balance sheet at the end of the van’s useful life is £2,000, that is the amount we expect to sell it for.

This problem is resolved by sharing out the original cost of the asset over the years that will benefit from its use. Suppose in our example of the delivery van we assumed that it would last the business for four years, after which time it would be sold for £2,000. This means that over the years we are using it we will have used up £20,000 of the van’s value (£22,000 cost less £2,000 final sales value). A fair share of the loss of value for each year could therefore be £5,000. £22,000 Ϫ £2,000 ϭ £5,000 per year 4 years This £5,000 is known as the depreciation charge for the year.
