Depreciation Conventions Used in AssetManage
•Full Year: A full year's depreciation is recorded in the first year and none in the last.
•Half Year: Half of one year's depreciation is recorded in the first year and half in the last.
•Full month: Depreciation is prorated according to the number of months in service during the year, including the month placed in service.
•Half Month: Depreciation is prorated according to the number of months in service during the year. The month the asset is placed in service is included only if the placed-in-service date falls on or before the 15th.
•Actual days: Depreciation is prorated according to the number of days in service during the year.
