Straight Line Depreciation Calculator

Straight line depreciation is where an asset loses value equally over a period of time.

For example if an asset is worth 10,000 and it depreciates to 1,000 over 5 years, the yearly depreciation is 1,800.

(10,000 less 1000 = 9000 divided by 5 years = 1800).

The calculator below shows the depreciation values if either the depreciation period or value is entered.

There is an option to add the results to a table for comparision.(the table appears the first time you click the button).
