Depreciation policy can be different for same class of asset even if they are in same company, if conditions or nature of use are different. for example 1 factory can be in dry area and other factory can be in costal area, factory in costal area may be depreciated in accelerated manner because of moisture content.
If policy can be different in same entity it can be different in holding and subsidiary as well.
