In early January, Satyr capitalized $196,000 as the cost of the patents. Patent amortization expense of $9,800 was recorded based on a 20-year useful life.
2. On July 1, 2012, Satyr purchased a small company and as a result acquired goodwill of $92,000. Satyr recorded a half-year’s amortization in 2012, based on a 50-year life ($920 amortization). The goodwill has an indefinite life.
