So, if on the account of your enterprise listed building, belonging to the 8th group Classification, the initial value of which is equal to 15 million rubles, its useful life will be equal to 25 years or 300 months. Monthly depreciation calculated by the formula, will be equal to: = (1 / 300) * 100% = 0.33%. In this case, the monthly amount of depreciation will be: 15 million rubles. * 0,33% = 49,500 p.
