Method

Explanation:

  • Under Diminishing Balance Method, a fixed percentage of depreciation is charged every year on reduced balance of the asset i.e.. the balance b/d of the asset each year. This is why every next year, the amount of depreciation also goes on decreasing.
  • Under Straight Line Method, this method, a fixed percentage of the cost of the asset is written off every year to reduce the value of the asset to zero or to its scrap value. The amount of depreciation remains constant for every year.
  • Under Production Hour Method, a fixed rate of depreciation per hour is calculated by dividing the value of the assets with the estimated life of the asset in production hours.
  • Under Production Unit Method, a fixed rate of depreciation per unit of output is calculated by dividing the value of the assets with the physical units of output. This method is mainly used for depreciating wasting assets like mines, quarries etc.
