IAS 16. Fixed Assets. We are a graphic arts company, and at the beginning of 2016, we acquired a new printer. The price of this printer was 25,000 euros. The additional expenses of the purchase were as follows:
- Installation and assembly: 3.000 euros.
- Transportation and delivery: 1.150 euros.
All operations have a 21% VAT (not included), and the payment of the amounts is made by bank check.
During January, the assembly and installation of the new printer takes place, which is in perfect working condition from February the 1st.
The useful life expectancy of the printer is estimated at 10 years, and its amortisation will be carried out following the linear method. Additionally, at the end of its useful life, the company will have to face the costs of dismantling and rehabilitation of the place. Estimating said costs in 5,000 euros. Besides, said machinery requires specialised weekly maintenance, amounting to 250 euros per month.
- The initial cost of the acquisition.
- The amortization fees.
- The costs derived from daily maintenance.
IAS 36. Impairment of assets. We are a photo studio, and due to the increase in work and staff, we have had to acquire three new cameras and accessories. The acquisition occurred in January 2018. The prices of the cameras are as follows:
- Camera 1: 1.750 euros
- Camera 2: 3.500 euros
- Camera 3: 1.950 euros
- Accessories: 4.550 euros
- The impairment loss of the asset at the end of 2020, taking into account that the recoverable amount of the acquisitions is:
- Camera 1: 575 euros
- Camera 2: 1.500 euros
- Camera 3: 750 euros
- Accessories: 2.200 euros
IAS 38. Intangible Assets. On March 1, 2016, we obtained a patent for 7,500 euros.
At the close of the fiscal year, on December 31, 2016, the fair value of the patent was 9,000 euros.
As of December 31, 2017, the fair value of the patent stands at 8,000 euros.
