Does depreciation apply to a claim if you have Replacement Cost Coverage?
yes - you are given the depreciated amount up front - you need to make replacement and spend above the depreciated amount to make a supplementary claim for the actual replacement cost amount. this protects the insurer from overpaying the claim

Your mortgage company wants you to insure for the value of the loan but you think insurance should only cover the replacement cost of the structure what is the minimum coverage required?
You have to have it insured for at least the amount of mortgage. That is the mortgage companies "insurance" that it will be paid for if it is totally destroyed. Answer If you agreed to insure your house for the amount of the mortgage when you obtained your mortgage then you are bound by that agre…ement and will have no choice but to comply. Actually, the purpose of homeowner's insurance is not to insure the loan, it's to insure the property. You cannot purchase more than the replacement cost of the house. In the event of a total loss, you will only be paid the cost to replace the house up to the limit shown in the declarations, regardless of what the loan amount is. It is against the law for a mortgage company to require you to secure insurance for the value of the loan. They can be fined. (MORE)
If you own your home and have no mortgage against it should you be given a depreciation value on damages to your home after a hurricane even if you have cost replacement in your policy?
Answer . \nGenerally, most insurance policies that afford "Replacement cost coverage" will only pay the depreciated value (or "actual cash value") up front until the repairs or replacement actually takes place. In the event you will not repair or replace the home where it stood, you would only b…e entitled to the actual cash value. Otherwise, they will pay the difference between the ACV and actual replacement cost (less your deductible) only after the repairs are complete. Most policies have a time limit on how long you have to make a claim for the replacement cost.....usually 6 months! (MORE)

Answer . \nClaims made policies must have an occurrence occur and be reported to the carrier within the policy period. The tail protects against claims made subsequent to the effective termination date of the occurring policy period.
Answer \n. \nWhen we use asset in business due to general usage it bears some wear and tear. Eventually it will be completely destroyed or it will complete its useful life (e.g. due to technology improvements). So rather than write the asset off from the balance sheet in the final year we divide …the cost of the asset by the number of years in which we expect to use it (to find the annual depreciation charge) and allocate the charge to all years in which we use the asset. This process is called depreciation. We use depreciation because the asset is used for earning income. That's why the average value of the asset should be allocated to all those years in which it is used. If we don't distribute the cost to all years then profit will be higher than it really was and when in the last year of asset the asset is written off we would get less profit than was actually earned. This is not in accordance with accounting principles. . Also to reflect the expenses that went into production to produce the end result. . A piece of asset is bought and are broken down into segments as if each is a stand alone unit that contributed to your end result. Depreciate. Think of it as regular business expense that don't get used up in one go. . (MORE)

Answer . Now try in proper English.. The deductible is not a payment. That is in essence what you pay before the insurance co pays. In other words, if the loss is $1000 and you have a deductible of $300 you will only get a claim check for $700
Yes it is a fixed cost. Reason being that a fixed cost remains unchanged in total as the level of activity increases or decreases. Example of fixed costs include depreciation of plant and equipment, cost of council rates and rent.

Depreciation is a sunk cost, so you should ignore it in relevatnt costing. you shoud be asking yourself the following question: can I avoid depreciations once I have bought the asset?

Y…ou have already incurred the cost of the asset and as a result you can not avoid deprecition, that is why it is a sunk cost.. Peace Tshepo (MORE)
Your contractor's insurance company - damage was their fault - wants you to settle damages at depreciated value - ACV. Aren't you entitled to full replacement cost -RCV- because it wasn't your fault?

Most (not all) dwelling coverages have an inflation protection on them now, which would rebuild the structure in a total loss, this depends on the form etc. If you policy is an 'actual cash value' settlement, then the amount is determined by the replacement cost (now) less depreciation. If you would… like more assistance, please provide specifics. (MORE)
That depends on the terms of your specific policy. You should read it to find out. . It depends whether the insurance is 'like for like' or 'new for old'. If it's not clear from your policy speak to your insurance company or broker.
It depends on the policy you have with the insurance company. Replacement cost phrasing should include 20% or so over the value of the home. Closely question the agent about the contents--like cabinets, appliances, fixtures and so on should the home become a total loss.

Consistency is a concept used when applying accounting methods to a business, the business must continue to use that particular method. For an example if a company is charging depreciation using the straight line method, they must stick with the straight line method. According to this concept…,whatever accounting practices(whether logical or not) are selected for a given category of transactions,they should be followed from one accounting period to another to achieve compatibility for example:if depreciation is charged according to a particular method it should be followed year after year for the purpose of comparison.

Can you get homeowners full replacement coverage up to a specified amount IE 500000 even if the actual replacement cost is 6500000?
If you can support that your home's true replacement cost is $500,000 instead of $650,000 - which is different from market value OR tax value, your insurance company will probably reduce the amount of coverage at your written request. However, if you owe more than $500,000 your mortgage company may …not approve and you may have a bigger problem to deal with. Coordinate with your mortgage company in advance, and ask them to remove the land value from the homeowner's insurance requirement. That said, however, talk with your agent first because some things, like additional living expenses and debris removal - come out of the coverage limit - and you don't want to be underinsured! (MORE)

Depreciation can be either a direct cost or an indirect cost, or it can be both direct and indirect. Let's illustrate this with the depreciation of a machine used in Department 23 of a manufacturer. The depreciation on that machine is a direct cost for Department 23 . It is direct because it is tr…aceable to Department 23 without any allocation. The depreciation of this same machine will be an indirect cost of the products manufactured with that machine. It is indirect because the depreciation is allocated to the products. Perhaps the machine in Department 23 has depreciation of $50,000 per year (cost of machine of $500,000 divided by 10 years of useful life). The $50,000 of annual depreciation is then assigned or allocated to products based on the number of hours that products use the machine. For example, if the manufacture expects 20,000 machine hours of use in the current year, then it assigns or allocates $2.50 ($50,000/20,000) per machine hour to each product using the machine. If Product #189 requires one hour of this machine's time, Product #189 will have $2.50 as part of its indirect costs. Indirect manufacturing costs are also referred to as manufacturing overhead, factory overhead, or burden. (MORE)
Yes. Under some circumstances the insurance company would "absorb" the deductible if the claim for that particular line of coverage exceeded that policy limit.

In the US, the answer depends on what depreciable assets you are talking about. Depreciation on any depreciable asset that is directly used in the production of goods is part of Manufacturing Overhead , and therefore is a product cost, which is included in the calculation of the value of both… inventory and cost of goods sold. So, depreciation on a factory building and factory equipment directly used to manufacture a product are both product costs. Conversely, depreciation on equipment that is NOT directly used in production (e.g., depreciation on office computer equipment) is NOT a product cost. (MORE)

As for cancelling your policy due to a claim. No, Insurance companies in the U.S. do not cancel your policy simply because you have a claim. Additionally if you've had too many claims that make you no longer eligible for the program or claims resulting from negligence or if the company perceives a moral hazard then your policy could also be non renewed.

Depreciation is a fixed cost as it does not vary with variation in production volume and even charged when there is no production at all.
This is defined as the cost to repair without regard to depreciation. All the homeowners policies that I have seen have a cap of 4 time the ACV or the policy limit, whichever is less. When you have a full replacement cost policy you also have the requirement to carry full replacement cost value on y…our policy at 100%. What this means is that if you don't have enough coverage to pay the full replacement cost, then you will be penalized on every claim whether large or small. For this reason, you only want to carry full replacement cost if you are sure that you have enough coverage to avoid the penalty. (MORE)
