REDUCE TAXES AND INCREASE CASH FLOW

Cost segregation is a strategic tool that allows companies to increase their cash flow by maximizing depreciation benefits for tax purposes. Specifically, it is an analysis of the capital expenditures or investment made in a building that results in the proper classification of cost between real and personal property for the purpose of determining tax deductions for depreciation.

A cost segregation study is used to identify, segregate and reclassify components of a project into asset classes, which can be depreciated over shorter period of time and using methods that accelerate the amount of the deductions. The value of the process is the increased cash flow generated by the tax savings realized through accelerated deductions.

BENEFITS OF COST SEGREGATION STUDIES

THE BENEFITS ARE BETTER THAN EVER

Recent tax law changes provide for additional bonus depreciation deductions for newly acquired personal property in addition to the regular depreciation deduction. The bonus depreciation is not allowed on real property acquisitions. Cost segregation studies will identify items that would otherwise be classified as real property and classify them as personal property qualifying for the bonus depreciation. The bonus depreciation will significantly enhance the cash flow benefits provided by cost segregation.
