Cost Segregation

The new building on your balance sheet – or the property you just acquired or renovated – may generate more cash flow benefits than most companies realize. That’s because the values of short lived assets contained in construction or acquisition cost documentation are often hidden from view. Cost segregation studies, a service that uncovers these hidden assets, can be a potent tool, bringing to light substantial tax savings made possible by accelerated depreciation.

You have an opportunity to maximize their depreciation benefits under current tax law if you are:

  • Building a new facility.
  • Renovating, remodeling or expanding an existing building.
  • Purchasing or acquiring real estate.
  • Relocating and investing in leasehold improvements.
  • Not depreciating current assets properly.

As leaders in international consulting, our professionals are involved in worldwide policy-setting organizations focused on the future trends that will impact you most in upcoming years. Versed in these topical issues, we are well-prepared to help you plan effectively for future needs.

Why Pay More Taxes Than You Need To?

Depreciation continues to be one of the most significant opportunities to reduce your federal income tax liability. Without cost segregation, however, many companies fail to fully capture these benefits. The results of a cost segregation study, depending on effective tax rates and discount rates, can save clients, on a net basis, $210 for every $1,000 of property reclassified from long life to shorter life depreciation categories.
