In first year the highest expense of depreciation offers by declining-balance method and also known as method of accumulated-depreciation. This is due to the deprecation calculation on the book-value. Although the rate of deprecation doesn’t change, but book value of asset steadily decline due to change the expense of depreciation from precedent year to coming year. So, when useful life of asset is long than high deprecation is charged and as the asset’s useful life reduce the deprecation also low. It demonstrates that superior advantages of asset result in higher expense of depreciation(Paul D. Kimmel, Jerry J. Weygandt, Donald E. Kieso, 2012).

Tutor went the extra mile to help me with this essay. Citations were a bit shaky but I appreciated how well he handled APA styles and how ok he was to change them even though I didnt specify. Got a B+ which is believable and acceptable.
