Depreciation – a decrease in the value of property, the decline in value of an asset over a period of time.
Accelerated rates of depreciation – the rates in different countries vary, and some have a specially low rate for small companies (or for companies that make small profits, which may not be the same thing). Countries also differ in the way in which they calculate the profits on which the tax is imposed. Adjustments have to be made to the company's profit as calculated by its accountants before arriving at its taxable profit. Governments allow this in order to encourage capital investment.
