Fixed assets depreciate at a faster rate early in their useful lives, which is known as accelerated depreciation. This method of depreciation lowers the amount of taxable revenue early in an asset's life, deferring tax responsibilities to later periods.

The primary benefit of an accelerated depreciation method is that it allows you to take a larger deduction right away. A business's existing tax burden will be reduced if it receives a bigger depreciation deduction today. This deduction is particularly beneficial to new firms that may be experiencing short-term cash-flow issues.

Accelerated depreciation is a method for determining the worth of an asset over time. It's based on the idea that an asset's value is highest at the start of its life cycle, allowing for a greater amount of depreciation in the first few years.
