The reasons why CRE owners should be using cost segregation studies as part of their cash flow strategies are simple. The reasons to use CRE Cash Strategies for the work are even simpler.

1 – You could increase this year’s depreciation by as much as 100% of the value of your CRE, decreasing your income taxes by as much as 40% of the value of your property.

Cost segregation accelerates the depreciation of your commercial real estate by breaking a building down into all of its various components and depreciating each item, according to its short life.  Items receive a short life when they can be classified as a type of personal property, instead of real property. Depending on the details of your particular property, as much as 100% of the cost of the property can be depreciated immediately.

2 – Our work is guaranteed. If we don’t identify savings, our work is FREE.
