SL depreciates terminals at 6% per year using the declining balance method. • SL has an administrative building just west of Ottawa that is recorded on its books at $800,000. The building was purchased five years ago and has been depreciated over 20 years. On December 31, it was determined that there was a major soil issue around the building, which will make it difficult to sell. It is estimated that the building’s fair value and value in use is now 30% of its original cost, with an estimated $40,000 in costs to sell.
Additional information:
