Depreciation charge will show massive losses on accounts

Hi everyone,


A Club is looking to buy a new building for the business costing £400,000. The Club currently breaks even on the accounts. If the new building is depreciated 20% per annum, the accounts are going to show a very large loss. Is there any ways to combat this? And, what is the best way to explain this to the members that will be funding this new building, and then getting terrible accounts?


Thanks in advance for any replies.

Depreciate or not to depreciate, is not the answer?

Saving of existing cost?
