John Moffat says

Why have you asked this under a lecture on a Paper F3 topic?
You will find lectures on overhead apportionment in the Paper F2 lectures.

I don’t understand you
I said I don’t understand overhead reapportionment
The reciprocal method in F2
March 7, 2015 at 1:33 pm
I know what you said, but you wrote your comment under a Paper F3 lecture on Depreciation and IAS 16.
Again, you will find lectures on overhead apportionments (including reciprocal) in the Paper F2 list of lectures.

I have a question that if we purchase an asset and we know that its value will increase instead of decrease with the passage of time(e g, we purchase a building and we know that its value will increase with time).Should we depreciate such an asset or not??
March 6, 2015 at 8:50 am
Yes – you have to depreciate per IAS 16 (if it is an asset with a limited life).
The purpose is not to show a true value, but to spread the cost over the useful life.
(If the value does increase substantially, then you are allowed to revalue – but this is a separate issue.)

if the question says charge a full years depreciation charge on the year of purchase , and the asset was purchased on 31dec and the year end is on that day do we still charge a full years charge?
January 23, 2014 at 7:04 pm
Ask yourself “What does it mean when it says “a full years depreciation in the year of purchase””?
Was it bought during the year? YES? Then charge a full year’s depreciation! It’s as simple as that.
The same (apparently) illogical thinking goes into “and none in the year of sale” If we sell on 31 December, is it there as at the end of the year? NO? Then no depreciation.

, with a full years charge in the year of purchase. what does’ charge in the year of purchase’ mean? plz help
September 4, 2013 at 7:20 pm
It means that in the year that you bought the asset you charge depreciation for the whole year – even if you only had the asset for part of the year.
(The alternative is proportionate depreciation, in which case if you only bought the asset (say) 9 months through the year, then you only charge depreciation for the 3 months that you owned it. With ‘a full years charge in the year of purchase’ you would calculate depreciation as though you had owned it for the whole year.)
