equipment was reduced from 4 to 2 years. No entry has yet been made in the books. For
2003, the company recorded depreciation of P16,000 for the said equipment.
At present, Crame Corporations office and warehouse are located in a rented building. The
rental contract was signed on July 1, 2003 and has a term of five (5) years renewable for
another five (5) years. On October 1, 2003, Crame Corporation spent P190,000 to install
walls and fixtures. The leasehold improvements have a useful life of five years. No
