    The trial balance as at 31 March 2007
    Office equipment, at cost 2,750,000 (DR)
    Motor vehicles, at cost 937,500 (DR)
    Land, at valuation 2,487,500 (DR)
    Accumulated depreciation at 1 April 2006
    Office equipment 2,016,800 (CR)
    Motor vehicles 126,572 (CR)

    Additional information relates to the above:

    Depreciation is to be provided for the year as follows:
    Land Nil
    Office equipment 20% per annum on cost
    Motor vehicles 25% per annum on written down value
    Office equipment costing $600,000 was fully depreciated.

    Now, I have to prepare the income statement for the year end March 2007, how can I calculate the drpreciation of motor vehichles and equipment?

    Inventory at 1 April 2006 375,000
    The inventory at 31 March 2007 had cost and market value as
    Category Cost Market value
    X 125,000 120,000
    Y 250,000 370,000
    Z 100,000 160,000
    Total 475,000 650,000

    When I calculate the costs of goods sold, the opening inventory should be 375,000, but I am not sure whether the closing inventory shoud be 475,000 or 650,000.

    Please advise.
