    We can also enhance the standard of questions as per competitive exams like civil and state exams.
    Because the questions relating to accounts are good no doubt but as i am aspiring for civil, so i consider these questions some below to that level.

    • admin provides test papers from Class VII to CIVIL Services exams. The accountancy test papers relate to Class XI only.

If you are interested in a car that has the least amount of depreciation, which one would you purchase, the standard or the deluxe? How does depreciation affect the type of car that you purchase?

    Whilst I understand the purpose of depreciation, I am struggling to understand what implications depreciation can have on the balance sheet and income statement. Any help will be very appreciated! As much detail as possible but explained simply (Finance is not particularly my strong point) Thanks!

  5. I have a rental property that I purchased for $500,000.00 When i depreciate it in 27.5 years it comes out to about $18,000.00 per year of depreciation. If I keep the property ten years and sell it for $550,000, its considered $50,000.00 profit. For tax purposes, do I have to include the $180,000 of depreciation as capital gain?

    Along the same lines, the cost principle requires an asset to be initially recorded at cost. Depreciation causes the asset’s book value to decrease over the life of the asset.
    Explain the difference between accumulated depreciation and depreciation expense. What is the purpose of each account?

  8. I’m planning on buying a 05-06 Mustang gt within the next two months. The redesigned 2010 models are just hitting the dealers this week. So i know it should be taking a bigger depreciation hit than usual since this year isnt a carryover model. I was just wondering about when it would happen and how much to expect. Is there somewhere i can look online that has forecasted depreciation for cars.

  11. 3 partners are transferring their 1/3 share of an apt building into an LLC. The individuals have a different cost basis because of special elections and they each transferred a different cost basis into the apt building via separate 1031’s.

  15. The house has been re-plumbed and 1000 sq ft of new floor tile.

    There has been new carpet as well, but I think that is a 5 yr depreciation.

    And is depreciation figured by dividing the cost among 5 yrs, so a $1000 carpet job would be a $200 deduction every year for 5 years?

    (I am trying to help my 77yr old mother)

  16. What is the purpose of depreciation?

  17. For example, say a business bought an asset that cost $100,000 and it has an economic life of 10 years, does that mean the business gets to write off $10,000 a year for 10 years in taxes, or am I understanding it wrong? Is there a limit to how much a business can write off in depreciation? Thanks

  18. Depreciation of physical assets is the normal wear out of the usefullness of equipments, buildings, structures for economical uses. Example, a factory will need to replace all its machineries and equipments to cope up with new technology for better production….So to avoid deppreciation, we must pursue appreciation so that we can still make use of them. Appreciation includes MAINTENANCE-Repair, Replacement…and INVESTMENT. Can you elaborate more from these topics and sub topics?
