Depreciation Calculation Type: the date which your depreciation reports are based on - either Purchase Date or Install Date
Depreciation Module: a calculated method to determine the decrease in value of an asset over several years or a lifetime
Note: The “Depreciation Reports” is an optional module that must be enabled in a Hippo program on the Global Settings grid for Depreciation Reports to work. Depreciation Reports are calculated using the Straight Line Method.
