1.2 Forms of Depreciation

Flat Rate Depreciation

  • Flat rate depreciation occurs when the value of an asset decreases by a fixed amount every period (i.e. no interest occurs).
  • Graphs of flat rate depreciation are linear.
  • The recurrence relation formula describing flat rate depreciation is:

A_{n+1}=d+A_{n}

Note: as this is depreciation: d<0. Consequently, any graphs showing flat rate depreciation will have a negative slope.
