Michaux Ltd. purchased an office building on January 1, 2001, for $450,000. At that time, it was estimated that the building would last for 30 years and would have a residual value of $90,000. Early in 2007, a significant modification was made to the roof of the building at a cost of $30,000. This modification could not be identified as a separate component, but it was believed that it would add an additional ten years to the useful life. As well, it was estimated the residual value would be reduced to $50,000 at the end of the revised useful life. In 2015, due to a collapse in the local property market, the residual value was revised to nil. The useful life, however, was expected to remain as estimated in 2007. The company uses the straight-line method of depreciation.
