Solution:

a.

Calculation of acquisition cost = Cash price + Shipment insurance + Custom duty + Installation charge = Rs. 840,000 + Rs. 84,000 + Rs. 60,000 + 16,000 = Rs. 10,00,000

#### Journal entry

Oven a/c Dr. Rs. 10,00,000

Cash a/c                     Rs. 10,00,000

(To record the purchase of oven on cash)

b. (i)

Calculation of depreciation expenses under straight-line method

Annual depreciation = Acquisition cost – Salvage value / Estimated useful life = Rs. 10,00,000 – Rs. 100,000 / 9 years = Rs. 1,00,000

For, June to Dec. 2011 = Rs. 1,00,000 / 12 × 7 = Rs. 58,333

#### Journal entry

Dec 31st, 2011

Depreciation expenses a/c Dr. Rs. 58,333

Accumulated depreciation – oven a/c  Rs. 58,333

ii. Depreciation expenses per bread under the units of production method

Per bread cost = Acquisition cost – Salvage value / Total output capacity = Rs. 10,00,000 – Rs. 1,20,000 / 1,00,000 breads = Rs. 8.80 per bread

Now, depreciation expenses for first year = 24,000 breads × Rs. 8.80 = Rs. 211,200
