Summary: How to calculate depreciation as per diminishing value method in Australia for Tax Asset Book

Content (required):

1. As per straight line - If Asset cost is \$80000; life is 5 years, depreciation every year would come to 80000/5=16000 a year.
2. As per Diminishing value method - If Asset cost is \$80000; life is 5 years, the claim for the first year will be:

\$80,000 × (365 ÷ 365) × (200% ÷ 5) = \$80,000 × 40% = \$32,000.

The claim for the second year will be: \$48,000 × (365 ÷ 365) × (200% ÷ 5) = \$48,000 × 40% = \$19,200

In the third year, the base value will be \$28,800 and the claim will be \$11,520.

In the fourth year, the base value will be \$17,280 and the claim will be \$6,912.

This will continue until the value reaches zero.
