Declining Balance Again let N = useful life of asset and B = cost basis of our asset Next we’ll define a rate of depreciation R R = 2/N (200% or double declining balance) R = 1.5/N (150% declining balance) dk = B(1-R)k-1(R) H depreciation in year k The depreciation in any particular year depends on what year we’re talking about

Declining Balance d*k = B[1-(1-R)k] & cumulative depreciation up to and including year k BVk = B(1-R)k & Book value or remaining value after year k Notice there is no salvage value in these equations DB method does not account for salvage

DB Example Let’s work a quick example to illustrate what DB method looks like Let’s say we purchase a $100,000 asset with a useful life of 12 years We’ll use double declining balance of R = 2/N for this problem Lets make a complete table to see how DB works

DB Example If we had done straight line, depreciation would have been $100,000 / 12 = $8,333 each year Notice that with DB method we start off with much higher depreciation and then drop off This is why DB method is called an
