# Dynamic depreciation formula

Hi everyone.

I have a list of assets (many thousand) with different purchase dates. I would like the cost to be depreciated over 4 months in line with the lower table (% varies by month) and I already have a formula which works well for assets 1 and 2 in the table. However is there a formula which adjusts for number of days, so that for asset 3 (purchased 8 March) : March would be ~23 days of the 40% cost, and April would be ~8 days of the 40% cost and ~23 days of the 30% cost?

Many thanks for your time Peter - much appreciated!

This doesn't quite work. If an asset is purchased 8th March, I would want March to be 23 days of the 40%, and April to be the remainder 8 days of the 40% and 23 days of the 30%, with May being 8 days of the 30% and 23 days of the 20% and so on. Where as your solution results in the correct position for March, but the corrections don't arise until the final month.

Difficult to succinctly explain and conscious of your time. I think I've established a more manual calculation method, so happy for this to be left unless you can think of a swift fix.

Thanks again - David

Yes, I should have realised that.

See if this monster is better. Note the change to the lookup table in rows 9:10
