Hi,

Straight line Basis Formula:

(Cost - Residual Value) / Useful Economic Life

Residual Value is how much it can be sold for.

Use formula above:

(£20,000 - £4,000) / 4 Years = £4,000 (This is the Depreciation charge each year; this is fixed each year)

Machine @ Cost 1.7.20X0 = £20,000

Year 1 Depreciation: (£4,000) (Deduct)

Carrying Amount @ Year 1 = £16,000
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Machine @ Cost 30.6.20X1 = £16,000

Year 1 Depreciation: (£4,000) (Deduct)

Carrying Amount @ Year 2 = £12,000
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Machine @ Cost 30.6.20X2 = £12,000

Year 1 Depreciation: (£4,000) (Deduct)

Carrying Amount @ Year 3 = £8,000
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Machine @ Cost 30.6.20X3 = £8,000 (This is the Carrying Amount)

Hope this helps.
