Returns the depreciation for each accounting period. This function is provided for the French accounting system. If an asset is purchased in the middle of the accounting period, the prorated depreciation is taken into account. The function is similar to AMORLINC, except that a depreciation coefficient is applied in the calculation depending on the life of the assets.

Sample Usage


AMORDEGRC(cost, date_purchased, first_period, salvage, period, rate, [basis])

IMPORTANT: Dates should be entered by using the DATE function, or as results of other formulas or functions. For example, use DATE(2008,5,23) for the 23rd day of May, 2008. Problems can occur if dates are entered as text.

The AMORDEGRC function syntax has the following arguments:

  • Cost    Required. The cost of the asset.

  • Date_purchased    Required. The date of the purchase of the asset.

  • First_period    Required. The date of the end of the first period.

  • Salvage    Required. The salvage value at the end of the life of the asset.
