What is Accelerated Depreciation?
Any pattern of depreciation is called accelerated depreciation that writes off depreciable assets more quickly than does straight-line depreciation.
Methods of depreciation that allocate a greater portion of the asset’s cost the early years of its useful life, and consequently less to the later years.
