OBJECTIVE To understand the basics depreciation and its application financial accounting . of in


Depreciation is a measure of the wearing out, consumption or other loss of value of a depreciable asset arising from use, effluxion of time or obsolescence through technology and market changes.

Depreciable Assets Expected to be used during more than one accounting period. Have a limited useful life . Held by an enterprise for use in production or supply of goods and services, for rental to others or for administrative purposes and not for the purpose of sale in the ordinary course of business .

Depreciation not applicable in Forests, plantations and similar regenerative natural resources . Wasting assets including expenditure on the exploration for and extraction of minerals, oils, natural gas and similar non-regenerative resources . Expenditure on research and development . Goodwill and other intangible assets .

Tangible Depreciable PropertyPurchased property that can be seen or touch Machinery Buildings and improvements, fences Dams, ponds, or terraces Irrigation systems and water wells Partial business use

Intangible Depreciable PropertyPurchased property that has value that cannot be readily seen or touch Computer Software Copyrights, patents, etc

Efflux of time Accident


Straight Line Depreciation Method

Simplest and most commonly used depreciation method . Calculated by taking the purchase or acquisition price of an asset subtracted by the salvage value divided by the total productive years . The asset can be reasonably expected to benefit the company .

Accelerated Depreciation Method

An asset loses book value at a faster rate than the traditional straight-line method. Companies employ this method when they have assets that they expect to be more productive in their early years. Helps companies shield income from taxes as the higher the depreciation expense, the lower the net income.


Sum-of-years' Digits Method AnnualDepreciation is determined by multiplying the Depreciable Cost by a schedule of fractions. They assume that an asset loses a majority of its value in the first several years of use.

EXAMPLEDepreciation expense = (Cost - Salvage value) x Fraction Fraction for the first year = n / (1+2+3+...+ n) Fraction for the second year = (n-1) / (1+2+...+n) Fraction for the third year = (n-2) / (1+2+3+...+ n) ... Fraction for the last year = 1 / (1+2+3+...+ n)

n represents the number of years for useful life.

ABC Ltd. purchased a truck for $65,000 on 1st January 1991. The expected life was 5 years and salvage value $5,000.Amount to be written off= $65,000 - 5,000 = 60,000 Sum of years = 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15

First year depreciation Second year depreciation Third year depreciation Fourth year depreciation Fifth year depreciation Total depreciation in 5 years

5/1560,000=20,000$ 4/1560,000=16,000$ 3/1560,000=12,000$ 2/1560,000=8,000$ 1/1560,000=4,000$ 20000+16000+12000+8000+4000= 60,000$

Units-of-Production Depreciation Method

Based on an assets usage, activity, or parts produced instead of the passage of time . In this method, depreciation during a given year will be very high when many units are produced, and it will be very low when only a few units are produced.

Formula for CalculatingUnits-of-Production Depreciation Method

Annual depreciation expense = (cost of asset salvage value)* Actual production/ total estimated production

EXAMPLESuppose, a printer has original cost $7,000, salvage value $1,000, and is expected to produce 100,000 units.

Depreciation per unit = (7,0001,000) / 100,000 = .06$ .06 actual production will give the depreciation cost of the current year. If in any year actual production is 10,000 units, then depreciation for that year is 10,000x.06= 600$

Need for DepreciationAscertainment of True Profit or Loss-Depreciation must be considered in order to rule out the ambiguity

Ascertainment of True Cost of Production-Depreciation must be considered as a part of cost of production else it would result in loss to business.

True Valuation of Assets

-Depreciation helps in displaying true financial position ofbusiness .

Keeping Capital Intact-If excess profit is withdrawal (not considered),working capital would gradually reduce resulting in weak business.
