Gartner Glossary


Amortization is an accounting technique used to spread payments over a set period of time. Amortization enables organizations to either pay off debt in equal installments over time (also known as loan amortization) or to allocate the cost of an intangible asset over a period of time for accounting and tax purposes (also known as asset amortization).
