Depreciation - Low Value Assets Pool - Assets Management
8 Depreciation methods

2 linear methods : prime cost (straight line) indexed (CPI index for inflation)

3 accelerated methods : diminishing (reducing balance) extended diminishing (same as above with compensation for months versus years) sum of digits (uses the formula 2 (n-i+1) / n(n+1) the asset is fully depreciated at the end of the asset's life you specify as opposed to the diminishing method which drags on.)

2 new methods for tax : prime cost life and diminishing life which are just variations of the above but with the effective life of the asset instead of a percentage (ie 5 years equates to 20%)
