salvage value

Popular Terms
Estimated residual value of a depreciable asset or property at the end of its economical or useful life. In all methods for determining depreciation (except the double declining balance depreciation method) salvage value is deducted from the asset's purchase price. When the cost of an asset less its accumulated depreciation equals its salvage value, no more depreciation may be taken.
