The half-year convention for depreciation refers to a depreciation plan applied to evaluate depreciation for tax purposes in which only half of the full-year depreciation is permitted in the 1st year while the outstanding half-year of depreciation is deducted from earnings in the final year of depreciation. This assumes that a fixed asset or property have been in service for one-half of its first year, regardless of the actual purchase date.
