Declining Balance depreciation setting

Hi there,

We are going to roll out to new company which used double declining method in their previous system. I have tried to configure new depreciation key as double declining method as below but the monthly depreciation is incorrect.

APC: 1,000,000

use life: 4 years

dep key class declining balance

base method = Ordinary: percentage from useful life

declining factor = 2

multilevel method: base value = NBV

rem.life = yes

Though I have set the base value as NBV over the remaining life, the system proposed the monthly planned depr as 41,667 for the whole first year.

(1,000,000 / 48 * 2 )

How do we able to configure to get below result??

APC: 1,000,000

use life: 4 years

month 1 = ((1,000,000 - 0) / 48 * 2 ) = 41,667

month 2 = ((1,000,000 - 41,667) / 47 * 2 ) = 40,780

month 3 = ((1,000,000 - 82,447) / 46 * 2 ) = 39,894 and so on..

Really grateful if somebody can help up with some clue.

Thanks Thanks,

Kawi
