To check does depreciation go in cost of sales?

    Yes

    When you depreciate assets such as production machinery, the depeciation expense is included within cost of sales.
    Vehicle depreciation for vehicles used to distribute the products to customers would be a distribution cost.
    Administrative costs can also include depreciation of appropriate assets.

    So look at the assets which are being depreciated and charge the cost to the appropriate general heading.
