vrijval: could it be the name of the organization


Explanation:
Afschrijving here is to be translated by "amortization", not depreciation. Depreciation is used for tangible fixed assets, amortization for intangibles.
Maybe they mean the contributions to "vrijval", name of a magazine, organization ..?

amortization


Explanation:
The context is unclear. If more text is provided we can get a clear picture.
