Cost Segregation Studies
Industrial Tax Consulting offers a strategic approach to maximizing tax benefits for businesses in the industrial sector. By meticulously analyzing a property’s components, these services aim to accelerate depreciation deductions, reducing taxable income and lowering tax liabilities.
This process involves identifying shorter-lived assets within a property, such as machinery, fixtures, and specialized systems, which can be depreciated over a shorter time frame than the overall building structure. By segregating these costs, businesses can optimize their cash flow and increase their bottom line by deferring taxes, freeing up funds for reinvestment or operational needs.
How Cost Segregation Studies Work
Property acquisitions encompass not just the main building structure but also a range of internal and external components. On average, 20% to 40% of these components fall under tax categories that offer quicker write-off opportunities compared to the building structure itself. ITC’s Cost Segregation Study intricately dissects a property’s construction expense or purchase cost, which would otherwise be subjected to depreciation over extended periods. The primary objective of this study is to identify all costs associated with the property that can be depreciated over shorter spans of five, seven, and 15 years.
In distinction, our team transcends the boundaries of a conventional Cost Segregation study. It goes further by segregating various building structural components, including the roof, windows, and HVAC units. This separation allows for claiming loss deductions when these components require replacement. Furthermore, in the context of leased properties, ITC extends its services to the division of tenant leasehold improvements, enhancing the scope of its comprehensive approach.
Who Qualifies for Cost Segregation
If you’ve acquired or constructed industrial real estate within the last 15 years, engaging in Industrial Tax Consulting’s cost segregation services can offer significant benefits.
While cost segregation may not be suitable for every investor, it becomes a strategic option when investors seek increased liquidity for new investments. As you contemplate expanding your real estate portfolio to include an industrial building, the process of cost-segregation depreciation for your other properties can lead to reduced tax obligations in subsequent years. This reduction in taxes opens up additional financial resources that can be channeled toward the acquisition of the industrial office property, facilitating your investment goals.
