On January 1, 2014, Ultra Green Packaging purchased a used machine for $156,000. The next day, it was repaired at a cost of $4,068 and mounted on a new platform that cost $5,760. Management estimated that the machine would be used for seven years and would then have a $21,600 residual value. Depreciation was to be charged on a straight-line basis to the nearest whole month. A full year’s depreciation was charged on December 31, 2014, through to December 31, 2018, and on April 1, 2019, the machine was retired from service.
