DACCDB(p,v,y,r) |
is numeric, the period for which the calculation is to be done. For noninteger p arguments, the depreciation is prorated between the two consecutive time periods that precede and follow the fractional period.
is numeric, the lifetime of the asset.
Range: | y > 0 |
is numeric, the rate of depreciation expressed as a decimal.
Range: | r > 0 |
Details |
The DACCDB function returns the accumulated depreciation by using a declining balance method. The formula is
Note that int(p) is the integer part of p. The p and y arguments must be expressed by using the same units of time. A double-declining balance is obtained by setting r equal to 2.
Examples |
An asset has a depreciable initial value of $1000 and a fifteen-year lifetime. Using a 200 percent declining balance, the depreciation throughout the first 10 years can be expressed as
a=daccdb(10,1000,15,2);
The value returned is 760.93. The first and the third arguments are expressed in years.
