Insurance Policy Method of Depreciation

Under this method of depreciation, we buy the insurance policy. For buying the insurance policy, we pay the premium. Money received from insurance policy at the time of maturity will be used for buying new fixed asset. Every year, we charged depreciation which will equal to the insurance premium.

Main feature of this method of depreciation, we collect necessary fund from insurance policy when our asset will become scrape.

Following are the Advantages of This Method :- 

  •  Because every year's deducted depreciation from our total income is invested in insurance sector, we get the total fund for replacement of our fixed asset. 
  •  It is also insurance of fixed asset. If our fixed asset will become dead before its working life, we can get full amount for buying new fixed asset. 

Following are the Disadvantages of This Method :-

  • Because we invest our depreciation money in insurance sector, there is no high return on this investment.
