A firm is considering the replacement of an existing machine with a newer model. The old machine was purchased 5 years ago. At that time, its cost was $7,500 and it was expected to have a useful life of 15 years. Its current book value is $5,000 while its current market value is only $1,000
The new machine will have a fully installed cost of $10,000 and an estimated useful life of 10 years, with no expected salvage value or removal costs.
If the new machine is purchased, labor cost savings are estimated to be $1,000 per year, and the cost of waste materials is expected to decline by $2,000 per year.
