You create depreciation schedules to depreciate capital assets over time in formulas.

  To use depreciation schedules:

  1. Select Analysis, then Tools/Calculators, and then Depreciation Scheduler

  2. Add a depreciation schedule—see Adding Depreciation Schedules.

  3. Option: To change schedule lengths, in Schedule, select a schedule and click Length—see Setting the Length of Depreciation Schedules.

  4. Optional: To distribute the depreciation percentage across the schedule years, click each year cell and enter a percentage.

    • First column—Year number

    • Percent column—Percentage of depreciation per year. Use digits for percentages, for example, enter 20 for 20%, as opposed to .2. For salvage value reasons, the rates need not equal 100.

  5. Click OK.
