 Spanish term or phrase: aceleraste la amortización por \$12 millones La amortización de ese activo es \$9.3 millones por año y según tus propios números **aceleraste la amortización por \$12 millones**. En mi mundo una aceleración de \$21 millones en un año es material.

 English translation:increased depreciation by \$12 million Explanation:There is something called accelerated depreciation. I supposed if you extrapolate you can say that you accelerated depreciation by \$12 million. I gather that the \$9.3 million is based on the straight-line method if it is a set amount per year. However, you can't just change depreciation methods form one year to the next.
