Each digit is then divided by this sum to determine the percentage by which the asset should be depreciated each year, starting with the highest number in year 1. Depreciation is a method of asset cost allocation that apportions an asset's cost to expenses for each period expected to benefit from using the asset. Depending on the chosen cost apportionment or depreciation rate, depreciation charges can be variable, straight-lined , or accelerated over the useful life of an asset. Accelerated depreciation uses decreasing charge methods, including the sum-of-the-years' digits SYD , providing higher depreciation costs in earlier years and lower depreciation charges in later periods.
Under the SYD method, the depreciation rate percentage for each year is calculated as the number of years in remaining asset life for the same year divided by the sum of remaining asset life every year through the asset's life. As the depreciation rate decreases over time, so does the depreciation charge. It makes sense to use an accelerated depreciation method such as the SYD method when an asset will lose most of its value toward the beginning of its useful life — as is the case with automobiles, for example.

In a highly controversial decision, the court ruled there was "no evidence whatsoever" of anti-Semitic motives. Jews in Germany and the foreign media were outraged. The chairman of the Jewish Community Wuppertal declared the ruling as "an invitation to further crimes.
