NEW COMPANIES ACT 2013
DEPRECIATION CALCULATION AS PER COMPANIES ACT 2013. After applicability of new companies act 2013 from 1st April 2014 Schedule II of companies act has been applied to all type of companies. As per new Schedule II depreciation calculation has been shifted from predefined rates to USEFUL life. Now the new companies act has defined the useful life for each type of asset which is defined in schedule II.

DEPRECIATION CALCULATION AS PER COMPANIES ACT 2013
In brief I will try to sum up the whole method of calculation of depreciation as per new Companies act 2013. For this purpose we have to divide our whole fixed asset register into two main parts.
1. Assets Purchased during the FY 2014-15
2. Assets Purchased earlier i.e. before 31st March 2014
For Assets Type 1 we need not to do so much laborious work. we have to simply Calculate depreciation on the basis of number of days and multiply with the rates.
Rate Calculation Formula in excel = 1 – Power(Scrap value/Original Cost,1/Useful Life)
For Assets TYpe 2 we have to firstly we need Purchased Value, Purchased Date and WDV as on 31.03.2014 for each individual asset separately. After that you need to calculate depreciation rate for each individual asset seperately with the help of formula given below.
Rate Calculation Formula in excel =
1 – Power(Scrap value/WDV as on 31.03.14,1/Remaining Useful Life)
Thats all. Its the crux of DEPRECIATION CALCULATION AS PER COMPANIES ACT 2013. You can download the complete guidance note published by the ICAI from the links given below :-
