Question

Highstreet Inc. is a distributor of electronic equipment. In January 2014, the company purchased a new building for its warehousing and head office requirements for a total cost of S5 million. It is now August 27, 2014, and the company has just completed renovations costing an additional $2 million and will be moving in on August 31. During these eight months, the company was able to rent out a portion of the building to a company next door for storage. Net storage revenue of $100,000 was earned during this renovation period. The elevator has just been inspected for a total cost of $150,000 and the next inspection will occur in five years as required. Based on a property inspection that was completed prior to the purchase, the inspector reported that the roof would likely last another 7 years, and the heating and air conditioning system would likely have to be replaced in 10 years. The company has determined that the roof is worth about 10% of the total original cost of the building and the heating and air conditioning system is worth about 15%. The company expects the building's useful life will be 30 years.
