ACC 306 Week 2 DQ2

Ethics Case 154 - American Movieplex - Leasehold improvements ? LO3 American Movieplex, a large movie theater chain, leases most of its theater facilities. In conjunction with recent operating leases, the company spent $28 million for seats and carpeting. The question being discussed over break- fast on Wednesday morning was the length of the depreciation period for these leasehold improvements. The com- pany controller, Sarah Keene, was surprised by the suggestion of Larry Person, her new assistant. Keene:    Why 25 years? Weve never depreciated leasehold improvements for such a long period. Person:    I noticed that in my review of back records. But during our expansion to the Midwest, we dont need expenses to be any higher than necessary. Keene:    But isnt that a pretty rosy estimate of these assets actual life? Trade publications show an average depreciation period of 12 years. Required: 1.    How would increasing the depreciation period affect American Movieplexs income? 2.    Does revising the estimate pose an ethical dilemma? 3.      Who would be affected if Persons suggestion is followed?
