  Search Results: depreciation
An accounting charge recognizing the annual reduction of value of a building, piece of equipment or other product with a long lifespan. Rather than accounting for the entire cost when purchased, depreciation charges a portion of the cost each year such that at the end of the item's life the value recorded on the company's book will equal its expected scrap or resale value.
