# Salvage Value Examples

Salvage value of an asset is considered for a depreciation expense, with the estimated amount frequently becomes zero. Refer the below two salvage value example problems which help you to calculate the value of a salvage of a company.

## Salvage Value Sample Problems

#### Example 1:

Let us consider the problem: A company buys a machine at a cost of Rs. 7000 and that the machine has a depreciation rate of 6% and a useful life for 6 years.

###### Solution:

We can calculate the Salvage Value using the given formula.

#### Formula:

S=P(1-i)y Where, S = Salvage Value P = Original Price i = Depreciation Rate y = Number of Years

Substituting the values in the formula,

Value of Salvage = 7000 ( 1 – 6 )6 = 4829.09

Therefore, a company has a salvage value of 4829.09

#### Example 2:

Let us consider the salvage value sample problem of a company who purchases a delivery car for \$15000 and estimates its useful life to be 5 years with the depreciation rate of 7%. What would be the salvage value?

###### Solution:

Substituting the values in the formula,

Salvage Value = 15000(1-7)5 = 10435.33

Therefore, Salvage value of a company is 10435.33
