Depreciation

In accountancy, depreciation refers to two aspects of the same concept: first, the actual decrease of fair value of an asset, such as the decrease in value of factory equipment each year as it is used and wear, and second, the allocation in accounting statements of the original cost of the assets to periods in which the assets are used (depreciation with the matching principle).Depreciation is thus the decrease in the value of assets and the method used to reallocate, or the cost of a tangible asset (such as equipment) over its useful life span.
