Question

Peridot decided to use the straight-line depreciation method and recorded $160,000 in depreciation in 2009 and 2010. Early in 2011, the company revised the total estimated life of the machinery to eight years.

1. What type of change is this?
2. Briefly describe the accounting treatment for this change.
