Question; Original vehicle cost £6000, after 3 years a p/x allowance of £1750 was given for the old vehicle towards a new one. Paid cash on new vehicle of £5546.
Depreciation is 8 years on straight line basis.
Full year depreciation is applied in year of acquistion but non in year of disposal.

Calculate the depreciation on the new vehicle?

Answer: (1750+5546)/8 =£912
That was my answer and I got it wrong, can someone please explain how that could have been wrong.
