Revaluation Method of Depreciation

As per this method of depreciation, we revaluate the fixed asset at the time of closing of accounts in every year. Difference between opening balance of fixed asset and current value of asset at the end of year will be the depreciation. If there is excess of current value of asset over the opening balance of asset, then this will be the increment in the asset. We transfer the calculated amount to profit and loss account.

This is very simple method. It method can easily apply on live stock and loose stock, corks, packages, patterns, trade marks, cutlery and crockery because we need to calculate the current value of these assets for calculating the depreciation. If our live stock dies and its opening balance  is $ 50,000 but due to death of live stock, current market value of dead live stock is $ 0. So, depreciation of live stock will be $ 50,000.

We can understand this method with following example. 

A firm had purchased loose tools costing $ 62500 on 1st april 2000. The tools were independent valued at the end of every year and the values placed on them were as under :

31st Dec. 2000 $ 60,000
31st Dec. 2001 $ 50,000
31st Dec. 2002 $ 42,500
31st Dec. 2003 $ 32,500
