From Qatar ,
In financial accounting there is same accounting treatment for "Depreciation" and "Amortisation" and it generally means decrease in the value of asset through the passes of time. But the term "Depreciation" is used against "Tangible Assets" like building, furniture, machinery etc and "Amortisation" is used against "Intangible Assets" like patent, copyrights etc.
Depreciation is treated as an indirect expense and the accounting treatment of it
as follows:
(i) Depreciation A/c Dr. xxx
To Assets A/c xxx

(ii) Profit & Loss A/c
To Depreciation A/c
Term loan is a liability and hence decrease in amount of loan with each instalments does not mean amortisation in that sense what we explain it above.

Dear,
I wrote here some information about the amortisation , The total interest is calculated in advance and added to the Principal, then repaid by equal Instalment (Principal + Interest)
However, the method used for calculating the apportionment between Principal and Interest is different
The Principal and Interest is apportioned evenly over the loan period
Principal and Interest Amount is fixed
Ex
Instalment Amount =(Principal/No. of Instalment)+(Total Interest/No. of Instalment)
Thanks
