Amortization, like depreciation, is the process of spreading the cost of a long-term asset or revenue over multiple periods. The key difference between amortization and depreciation is based on the nature of the item. Tangible long-term assets (such as computers and machinery) are depreciated. Intangible assets (such as trademarks, goodwill, copyrights, and patents) are amortized over the period of time which is considered the useful life of the asset. The term amortization is also used to refer to the process of splitting deferred revenue over multiple periods.
