mid-month convention


A precedent established by the United States Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in order to simplify the recording of asset depreciation for businesses. According to the mid-month convention, a business may record a depreciable asset that was disposed of during a given month as having been disposed of at the mid-point of that month, instead of requiring the exact day for calculating depreciation.
