This article describes the formula syntax and usage of the AMORDEGRC function in Microsoft Excel.


Returns the depreciation for each accounting period. This function is provided for the French accounting system. If an asset is purchased in the middle of the accounting period, the prorated depreciation is taken into account. The function is similar to AMORLINC, except that a depreciation coefficient is applied in the calculation depending on the life of the assets.


AMORDEGRC(cost, date_purchased, first_period, salvage, period, rate, [basis])
