If the amount is not material just account for it this year. If it is material you have to adjust accounts retrospectively and adjust the comparative information (of the last year) as per IAS 8 - Accounting Policies, Changes in  Accounting Estimates and Errors.

Dr - Retained profit a/c
Cr - Provision for depreciation
