What would you like to do?
yes - you are given the depreciated amount up front - you need to make replacement and spend above the depreciated amount to make a supplementary claim for the actual replacement cost amount. this protects the insurer from overpaying the claim

Depreciation's Affect On Cost of Capital . Please refer to the following Web site for a complete explanation on how depreciation affects the cost of capital:\n. \nhttp://e…n.wikipedia.org/wiki/Depreciation
When we use asset in business due to general usage it bears some wear and tear. Eventually it will be completely destroyed or it will complete its useful life (e.g…. due to technology improvements). So rather than write the asset off from the balance sheet in the final year we divide the cost of the asset by the number of years in which we expect to use it (to find the annual depreciation charge) and allocate the charge to all years in which we use the asset. This process is called depreciation. We use depreciation because the asset is used for earning income. That's why the average value of the asset should be allocated to all those years in which it is used. If we don't distribute the cost to all years then profit will be higher than it really was and when in the last year of asset the asset is written off we would get less profit than was actually earned. This is not in accordance with accounting principles. Also to reflect the expenses that went into production to produce the end result.A piece of asset is bought and are broken down into segments as if each is a stand alone unit that contributed to your end result. Depreciate. Think of it as regular business expense that don't get used up in one go.
Yes it is a fixed cost. Reason being that a fixed cost remains unchanged in total as the level of activity increases or decreases. Example of fixed costs include depreciation …of plant and equipment, cost of council rates and rent.
Most (not all) dwelling coverages have an inflation protection on them now, which would rebuild the structure in a total loss, this depends on the form etc. If you polic…y is an 'actual cash value' settlement, then the amount is determined by the replacement cost (now) less depreciation. If you would like more assistance, please provide specifics.
It depends on the policy you have with the insurance company. Replacement cost phrasing should include 20% or so over the value of the home. Closely question the agent about t…he contents--like cabinets, appliances, fixtures and so on should the home become a total loss.
If you want to collect the depreciation your insurance company withheld from your claim payment you must make the repairs to your home. After you make the repairs contact your… insurance company and they should issue a check for the depreciation.
It lowers your taxable income and therefore lowers your taxes. You are going to have to pay taxes on all depreciation "allowed or allowable" when you sell the property, so y…ou might as well take advantage of it.
Depreciation is that amount orpart of full cost of fixed asset which is allocated to specific fiscal yearduring which any asset is used to generate revenue.
Yes. Under some circumstances the insurance company would "absorb" the deductible if the claim for that particular line of coverage exceeded that policy limit. Also, there are… some policies out there that do not have a deductible if it is "scheduled personal property", e.g. Rolex Watch, Musical Instruments, Oriental Rugs.
In the US, the answer depends on what depreciable assets you are talking about. Depreciation on any depreciable asset that is directly used in the production of goods is part …of Manufacturing Overhead, and therefore is a product cost, which is included in the calculation of the value of both inventory and cost of goods sold. So, depreciation on a factory building and factory equipment directly used to manufacture a product are both product costs. Conversely, depreciation on equipment that is NOT directly used in production (e.g., depreciation on office computer equipment) is NOT a product cost.
Depreciated value is usually called actual cash value on an insurance policy. This takes a formula based on the type of item that you are claiming and devalues it by a certain… percentage every year. If an item is older then it will not have very much value. I would always want replacement cost coverage, this would pay to replace your property at today's prices.
yes, depreciation is an implicit cost. but this implicit cost is added to total costs in calculating accounting profits.
Only the total amount of a new machine is a relevant cost because this incurs in the future and incurs when a certain decision is made. The depreciation of old machines is… a sunk cost so this is an unavoidable cost. The amount for the old machine you sell is a relevant cost because you will get this amount if you sell the old machine and buy the new one.
