expression.AmorDegrc(Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, Arg4, Arg5, Arg6, Arg7)
expression A variable that represents a WorksheetFunction object.
|Arg1||Required||Variant||The cost of the asset.|
|Arg2||Required||Variant||The date of the purchase of the asset.|
|Arg3||Required||Variant||The date of the end of the first period.|
|Arg4||Required||Variant||The salvage value at the end of the life of the asset.|
|Arg6||Required||Variant||The rate of depreciation.|
|Arg7||Optional||Variant||The year basis to be used.|
If an asset is purchased in the middle of the accounting period, the prorated depreciation is taken into account. The method is similar to AmorLinc, except that a depreciation coefficient is applied in the calculation depending on the life of the assets.
The following table describes the values used in
|0 or omitted||360 days (NASD method)|
|3||365 days in a year|
|4||360 days in a year (European method)|
- Microsoft Excel stores dates as sequential serial numbers so they can be used in calculations. By default, January 1, 1900 is serial number 1, and January 1, 2008 is serial number 39448 because it is 39,448 days after January 1, 1900. Microsoft Excel for the Macintosh uses a different date system as its default.
- This function will return the depreciation until the last period of the life of the assets or until the cumulated value of depreciation is greater than the cost of the assets minus the salvage value.
- The depreciation coefficients are:
Life of assets (1/rate) Depreciation coefficient Between 3 and 4 years 1.5 Between 5 and 6 years 2 More than 6 years 2.5
- The depreciation rate will grow to 50 percent for the period preceding the last period and will grow to 100 percent for the last period.
- If the life of assets is between 0 (zero) and 1, 1 and 2, 2 and 3, or 4 and 5, the #NUM! error value is returned.
