                                       Step-by-Step Instructions

   Always start with the name of the company, the title of the statement, and the period for
   which the statement is being prepared.

Step 1. On line 4 place the title “Cost of Asset” and the amount of the asset when purchased.

Step 2. On line 5 place the title “Residual Value” and the amount of the residual value or the
       value of the asset once it has ended it useful life to the company.

Step 3.On line 6 place the title “Useful life” and the number of year the asset will be useful to
       the company.

Step 4.On line 7 place the titles:

       End of      Cost of           Depreciation    Accumulated         Book value at end
       Year        Asset             expense for     depreciation at       of year (Cost –
                                       Year           end of year          Accumulated
                                                                           Depreciation)

Step 5. On line 8 column A through line 12 column A place the years the asset will be used or
       number the lines for the beginning to the end of the assets number of years of useful life.

Step 6. On line 8 column B through line 12 column B place the cost of the asset.

Step 7. On line 8 column C through line 12 column C place the annual depreciation.
       The amount is calculated by the following formula:

                                        Cost of asset – Residual Value
                                                  Useful life

                                               20,000 – 5,000
                                                      5

                                                    = 3,000


Step 8. On line 8 column D through line 12 column D place the accumulated depreciation.
       Use the following formulas to calculate the amounts:

           D8 is equal to C8.
           D9 is equal to D8 plus C9.
           D10 is equal to D9 plus C10.
           D11 is equal to D10 plus C11
           D12 is equal to D11 plus C12.




                                                     3
Step 9. On line 8 column E through line 12 column E place the Book value of the asset.
       Use the following formulas to calculate the amounts:

E8 is equal to the cost of the asset (line 4) minus the Accumulated depreciation on line D8.
E9 is equal to the cost of the asset (line 4) minus the Accumulated depreciation on line D9.
E10 is equal to the cost of the asset (line 4) minus the Accumulated depreciation on line D10.
E11 is equal to the cost of the asset (line 4) minus the Accumulated depreciation on line D11.
E12 is equal to the cost of the asset (line 4) minus the Accumulated depreciation on line D12.

   Note: The number on line 12 column E should be the same as the residual value (line 5).
         The number on line 12 column D should be the same as the cost of the asset minus
         the residual value (depreciable cost).
