Description of Depletion. Explanation.


Definition Depletion. Description.

Depletion is an accounting treatment to deal with the reduction in the value of natural, non-renewable resources due to gradually "using up" the natural resource. Example of such natural resources include oil, gas, coal, gold, other minerals and timber.

The recording of depletion is a bookkeeping entry similar to depreciation and does not involve the expenditure of cash. As a non-cash expense it is deducted from revenues and thus lowers net income.
