There is also a method known as the group depreciation method. It is used to evaluating the depreciation of joined assets. The method is more effective in the calculation of depreciation of assets that are related. It is one of the easiest methods to use in the calculation. This is because you do not need to keep a record of petty details such as date of purchase, accumulated depreciation, and the remaining useful life of the assets (Sigidov, Rybyantseva, Adamenko, & Yarushkina, 2016). This method is, however, not suitable for high valued goods since it does not allocate the actual depreciation expense over the life of the asset. Lastly is the unit of production method. It is usually a two-step calculation method. First, obtain the straight-line depreciation of each unit then multiply it by the number of units produced. Change in the level of activity varies the depreciation charges. This method is especially important in determining asset efficiency.
