What is Accumulated Depreciation?

Accumulated depreciation is the total amount of depreciation expense associated with a specific asset (usually PP&E) since it was put into use. It is a contra-asset account, which is a negative asset account that offsets the balance  in the asset account it is associated with. A credit to a contra-asset increases the value of the account, while a debit decreases its value. When depreciation expense is recorded on the income statement of a company, the same amount is also credited to the accumulated depreciation account on the balance sheet. This also leads to a decrease in the asset's met book value. A depreciation schedule is often created to track the total depreciation over an asset's useful life when building a financial model.
