Depreciation Rate Chart

The concept of depreciation is used for the purpose of writing off the cost of an asset over its useful life. Depreciation is a mandatory deduction in the profit and loss statements of an entity using depreciable assets and the Act allows deduction either using the Straight-Line method or Written Down Value (WDV) method.

The calculation for depreciation under the WDV method is widely used. However, in case the undertaking is engaged in power generation or its generation and distribution, there is an option to choose the straight-line method. 

In certain circumstances, the Act also allows a deduction for additional depreciation in the year of purchase. To read about additional depreciation visit- Additional Depreciation Under the Income Tax Act.
