Cost Segregation | unlock tax savings from your real estate
Cost segregation is a way to accelerate the depreciation of certain real estate building and renovation costs, leading to a direct reduction in income taxes owed and a corresponding improvement in cash flow.
A StoneBridge Business Partners cost segregation study applied to real estate is almost certain to save a company significant amounts of money if the real estate:
- is worth more than one million dollars and
- has been held for less than 10 years.
Benefits for most clients outweigh the cost of the study by factors of 10 or more.
Put your assets to work
Every $1 million in assets reclassified from a 39-year to a five-year recovery period results in a net present value of more than $200,000.
- Income taxes are reduced
- Cash flow improves; other opportunities are suddenly possible
- Companies can claim prior years’ depreciation without amending prior returns
