Declining Balance Depreciation Method:

A depreciation method that converts the cost of an asset into a periodic expense. The method permits charging larger amounts of depreciation expenses in earlier years and lesser amounts later. In calculating annual depreciation charges, a constant percentage is applied each year to the net asset after deducting the previous accumulated depreciation until the asset's value is reduced to its net residual value at the end of its useful life.
