This company owns a large number of depreciable assets. Upon analyzing the entity’s current depreciation policy, which is based on straight line depreciation method the accountant realized that financial statements prepared by the entity do not show the true and fair view of company’s financial position. He, with the approval of the board, implemented a new policy based on the diminishing balance method assuming that company assets would reflect the realizable value.
