Negative Depreciation

I'm seeing negative depreciation reported for some assets. What's going on?

It's just the revision balances being absorbed.

If you're seeing negative depreciation reported for any given depreciation period, it's probably due to the combined effect of having a revisions balance as of the beginning of that period and a "Revision Treatment" of "Immediate."

The application allows you to control how revisions balances will be handled. You may choose one of three revision treatments to apply to the revisions balance for any time interval of each book for each asset:

Using the Never method, the application will allow an asset to be under-depreciated at the end of its life. However, the application will not allow an asset to be over-depreciated at the end of its life. If the changes made result in excess depreciation at the end of an asset's life, at the point in time when the asset is fully depreciated the application absorbs any excess depreciation as a revision over the asset's remaining life to prevent over-depreciation.
