Instructions

(Carry all computations to two decimal places.)

a. Assume that McPherson completed the office and warehouse building on December 31, 2022, as planned at a total cost of €5,200,000. The following expenditures were made during the period for this project: January 1, €1,000,000; April 1, €1,500,000; July 1, €2,000,000; and October 1, €700,000. Excess funds from the construction loans were invested during the period and earned €20,000 of investment income. Compute the amount of borrowing costs to be capitalized for this project.

b. Compute the depreciation expense for the year ended December 31, 2023. McPherson elected to depreciate the building on a straight-line basis and determined that the asset has a useful life of 30 years and a residual value of €300,000.
