On September 5, 2014, Nelson Lumber purchased timber rights in Northern Quebec for $432,000, paying $96,000 cash and the balance by issuing a long-term note. Logging the area is expected to take three years, and the timber rights will have no value after that time. Nelson Lumber paid $148,000 on account on September 27, 2014, regarding a patent for new logging equipment. It is expected that the patent will be technologically obsolete in 10 years. Nelson’s year-end is December 31 and it uses the straight-line method to amortize intangibles.

1. Record the acquisition of the timber rights and the patent.
2. Record amortization on the timber rights and the patent at December 31, 2014, and
December 31, 2015.
