VDB (Cost,Salvage,Life,StartPeriod,EndPeriod,Factor,SwitchFlag)

• is the initial cost of the asset
• is the value at the end of the depreciation
• is the number of periods over which the asset is depreciated
• is the Ending periods to calculate the depreciation
• is the Starting periods to calculate the depreciation
• is the rate at which the balance declines
• is a logical value specifying whether to switch to straight-line depreciation when depreciation is greater than the declining balance calculation.

Description

• This function computes the depreciation of an asset for any period you specify, using the double-declining balance method.
• To calculate depreciation, VDB uses a fixed rate.
• When factor = 2 this is the double-declining-balance method (because it is double the straight-line rate that would depreciate the asset to zero).
• The rate is given by: Example

A B
1 Initial Cost(C) 3500
2 Salvage 350
3 Number of Periods 12
4 Starting Period(SP) 0
5 Ending Period(EP) 2
