1. For plant purchase in 2005 - depreciation of 50K was charged ie half year dep - nothing else was done. It is diff between Cost and accumulated depreciation so far - it is fully depreciated by this year 2. We are separating 7 lacs into 240 k & 460K because there is a sale of assets worth 240K. For assets of 2004 / 2005 the P&M is fully depreciated and hence we need not separate them. 3. Yes Depreciation & provision for Dep are always maintained 4. 4K loss computation . on 2004 assets fully depreciated so no loss on scrapping. 2005 asset fully depreciated and hence 5k is fully profit. 2006 asset 90% depreciated so book value is 24K less: amount realised is 15K i.e loss of 9K. total loss i.e 9K loss + 5K profit
