E11-11 (LO1,2) (Depreciation—Change in Estimate) Machinery purchased for $60,000 by Tom Brady Co. in 2013 was originally estimated to have a life of 8 years with a salvage value of $4,000 at the end of that time. Depreciation has been entered for 5 years on this basis. In 2018, it is determined that the total estimated life should be 10 years with a salvage value of $4,500 at the end of that time. Assume straight-line depreciation.

E11-17 (LO3) (Impairment) Assume the same information as E11-16, except that Suarez intends to dispose of the equipment in the coming year. It is expected that the cost of disposal will be $20,000.


  1. Prepare the journal entry (if any) to record the impairment of the asset at December 31, 2017.
  2. Prepare the journal entry (if any) to record depreciation expense for 2018.
  3. The asset was not sold by December 31, 2018. The fair value of the equipment on that date is $5,300,000. Prepare the journal entry (if any) necessary to record this increase in fair value. It is expected that the cost of disposal is still $20,000.
