When a company buys an asset they have to spread the cost of the asset over it's useful economic lifetime, this is done with depreciation. The accumulated depreciation is the depreciation from previous years and the charge for the year is the amount being depricated that year, which will be charged to the profit and loss. The assets will shows as a debit balance while depreciation will show as a credit balance in the balance sheet.
