Hi Leah, we have a similar arrangement in Oz, but you know... IANACPA etc 

I think the way it's usually done is you create two accounts. One is where you 
enter the expense for the original item, the other is where you enter the 
claimed depreciation. Ultimately the two accounts will end up cancelling each 
other out, at which point you can't claim depreciation any more :-)

It might be set up as a contra account, or you might just enter negative 
values, I really don't know the details on how it's done but hopefully it may 
be enough for you to find an answer having some new terms to google with ;-)

And if we're really lucky, my ignorant post is enough to anger someone into 
correcting me with the right way to do it!
