Straight line depreciation

A method of calculating the 

Depreciation

 of an 

Asset

 which assumes the 

Asset

 will lose an equal amount of value each year. The annual 

Depreciation

 is calculated by subtracting the 

Salvage value

 of the 

Asset

 from the 

Purchase

 price, and then dividing this number by the estimated useful life of the asset.
