The Adviser: Picking the Right Depreciation

The Adviser is a monthly activity where students take on the role of an accounting adviser. Each month, your students will accept a challenge from a local business who needs accounting help. Through a variety of individual and team exercises, your students will learn and incorporate both technical accounting concepts and soft skills needed to be successful.

This month, your students are working with Lamar Bermuda of Lamar’s Lawn Care Service to help figure out which depreciation method is best for their newly purchased equipment. This activity will allow your students to practice Straight Line, Units of Activity, and Double Declining Balance Depreciation. The downloadable activity includes a student worksheet and a teacher answer key (must log in to access).
