AMORDEGRC
Returns the depreciation for each accounting period. This function is provide for the French accounting system. If an asset is purchased in the middle of the accounting period, then 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.
If this function is not available, run the Setup program to install the Analysis ToolPak. After you install the Analysis ToolPak, you must enable it by using the Add-Ins command on the Tools menu.

Depreciation coefficient | |
Between 3 and 4 years |
1.5 | |
Between 5 and 6 years |
2 | |
More than 6 years |
2.5 |
- The depreciation rate will grow to 50 percent for the period preceding the last period and will grow to 100 percent for the last period.
- If the life of assets is between 0 (zero) and 1, 1 and 2, 2 and 3, or 4 and 5, the #NUM! error value is returned.
Example
Suppose a machine bought on August 19, 1993, costs $2,400 and has a salvage value of $300, with a 15 percent depreciation rate. December 31, 1993, is the end of the first period.
AMORDEGRC(2400,34199,34334,300,1,0.15,1)
equals a first period depreciation of $775
