Topic: Fixed asset depreciation straigtht line

Dear all , i am trying to depreciate my fixed asset using straight line, but the depreciation value is not correct according to the method and percentage.

e.g i have and asset value of 20,000 with depreciation of 5% straight line, after depreciation the value must be 19,000 but instead it giving lesser value

anybody can help explain how depreciation works a bit more?
Does the tax affect the amount in the depreciation? @joe

thanks

You have not given proper detail for us to check. Posts which are not answered or not fixed means the person who doesn't provide enough information to understand a situation to fix it.

Explain it a bit clear, How it has to work ?

And provide a sample of calculation  and formula we have to use it for the calculation
