Boosting tax benefits,
cash flow and ROI.
Cost segregation can have a significant impact on your bottom line. Specifically, the process identifies and quantifies the portions of building or property renovation costs which are eligible for shorter tax recovery periods. The result? Enhanced tax benefits at the beginning of a new project or renovation which can significantly boost your after tax cash flow and return on investment.
Individuals or business owners, regardless of industry, can benefit from cost segregation as long as you own, operate or rent commercial or residential real estate.
Commercial and residential real estate are depreciable over an extended period. Cost segregation can significantly shorten the depreciation periods for certain non-structural and land improvement costs and other tangible personal property assets. Implementing accelerated depreciation methods that are not generally available to real property will further increase your tax benefits.
