Question details

In the 30 June 2016 annual report of Emu Ltd, the equipment was reported as follows:

 

 

 

Equipment (at cost)

 

Accumulated depreciation

 

$ 500 000

The equipment consisted of two machines, Machine A and Machine B. Machine A had cost $300 000 and had a carrying amount of $180 000 at 30 June 2016, and Machine B had cost $200 000 and was carried at $170 000. Both machines are measured using the cost model, and depreciated on a straight-line basis over a 10-year period.

 

On 31 December 2016, the directors of Emu Ltd decided to change the basis of measuring the equipment from the cost model to the revaluation model. Machine A was revalued to $180 000 with an expected useful life of 6 years, and Machine B was revalued to $155 000 with an expected useful life of 5 years.

 

At 1 July 2017, Machine A was assessed to have a fair value of $163 000 with an expected useful life of 5 years, and Machine B’s fair value was $136 500 with expected useful life of 4 years.
