*1:- Calculation of the amount of Depreciation on furniture for the year 2016-17
Machinery purchased on 1st Oct 2016
Depreciation = Value of Asset X Rate of Depreciation X Period
Value of Asset = 50,000
Rate of Depreciation = 15%
Period = from 01/10/2016 to 31/03/2017 i.e. 6 months
(from the date of purchase/Beginning balance to the end of the financial year)
= 50,000 X 15/100 X 3/ 12
Depreciation = 3,750
Total Depreciation for the year = 3,750

*2:- Calculation of the amount of Depreciation on furniture for the year 2017-18
Machinery purchased on 1st Oct 2016
Depreciation = Value of Asset X Rate of Depreciation X Period
