Depreciation Methods

Hi All,

Can we define a depreciation method that will calculate depreciation STL in the first year and then reducing balance in the remaining life of the asset.

Thanks and Regards,

MPH

    Hi MPH,

    i am not sure you can have a depreciation method of that sort .... probably you can design a table type depreciation ... however wanted to check with you whether the below workaround is acceptable or not ...
    You can create the asset with the STL depreication method till end of year 1, and later change the depreciation method from STL to WDV with appropriate remaining life. Also make sure you select appropriate Amortization option, so that the changes are done prospectively or restrospectively ...

    Regards,
    Ivruksha
