Depreciation - When things go Wrong

Sometimes we set up depreciation and the CPA firm decides it should have been done a different way. Of course, that information comes to us at least two years after we set it up. It's the nature of the beast; they're accountants, they can't help it.

The following scenarios will be covered over the course of four posts:
  • Wrong 1st yr Convention
  • Basis Reduction Required
  • Wrong Depreciation Method - fully depreciated as of previous year end
  • Wrong Depreciation Method - not fully depreciated as of previous year end
Stay tuned.

Until next post!

The report should be meaningful and informative to the party concerned. Depreciation schedules are divided into major asset categories sometimes such as buildings, hardware, equipment and software. It is the best way to keep track of your depreciation.
