Assignment Question(s):
(Marks 5)
Q1- On your own words, describe the methods that companies can implement to depreciate plant
assets. (2 Marks).
Companies can use one of the four depreciation methods listed below to depreciate plant
1. Straight Line Approach: This method requires determining the asset’s expected usable life
and the residual values at the end of that life. The salvage value is subsequently removed from
the asset’s original cost. The remaining amount represents the asset’s depreciable cost, which is
evenly amortized over its useful life by dividing the accumulated depreciation cost by the
expected useful life in years.
2. Declining Balance Technique: In this method, an asset is depreciated each year at a defined
rate based on its current book value. It is an accelerated depreciation system that records
higher accumulated depreciation in the early years of an asset’s life and lower depreciation
expense in the later years of the asset’s life.
3. Year Count The digit technique is also an accelerated depreciation method for amortizing
asset costs over their useful lives. It’s beneficial in a variety of situations.

Q3. What are the differences between sole proprietorship and corporation? (1 mark).
Sole proprietorship: • An individual owns a business; • The owner retains ownership to assets and
income; • The owner bears unlimited liability; • The business is terminated when the owner dies or
when the owner chooses to do so.
• A corporation is a legal entity that operates independently of its owners.
• Corporations can sue, be sued, buy, sell, and possess property. • Shareholders (owners) oversee the
corporation’s direction and policies, frequently through an elected board of directors.
• Shareholder responsibility is limited to the amount invested in the company; • The life of the
corporation is not dependent on the owners… After ownership is transferred by sale or inheritance,
the corporation is still managed by its manager
