Bus/Financial - Finance (general)
Italian term or phrase: rapportare
From annual financial statements:

Per i cespiti acquistati in corso d’anno si è ritenuto corretto **rapportare**dette aliquote al periodo di partecipazione dei beni al processo produttivo attraverso una generale riduzione del 50%;

The "aliquote" are in a depreciation table immediately before this sentence.

I'm actually struggling with the whole phrase - to many :"al" s for me to get the picture.

TIA for any help.

"were applied" (in context)
Explanation:
"For the assets purchased during the year those (depreciation) rates were applied to the period of use of the assets in the production process by making a general reduction of 50%."
There is probably a more complicated way of saying it but the author couldn't find it at the time. Basically if the depreciation rate on computers is 20%, then in the first year you only deduct 10% on all the computers for that year whether you bought them in Jan, June or Dec.

Went to bed at 10 pm got up at half four, a good six and a half hours. Trouble is after you've seen Sea Patrol twice round on sky, there's nothing left worth watching. Time to make a coffee for my wife. I am happy about my socks, thanks :-)
