Used Cost Segregation to Increase Cash Flow
Our client was considering purchasing an office building at a cost of $19 million. We suggested a cost segregation study, which generated an $800,000 net present value of after tax benefits. Cost segregation analyzes buildings and identifies components that can be depreciated over 5, 7 or 15 years rather than the standard 39 year period. This reduction allowed our client to defer income taxes and increase cash flow.
