Cost Segregation Studies

Accelerate tax deductions and improve your cash flow.

Cost segregation is an innovative, IRS-approved, tax strategy to depreciate your building faster in order to get the tax deductions now. If you have built, purchased, remodeled or expanded real estate property since 1986, you may qualify for a one-time catch up depreciation.

Cost segregation has the potential to save you significant dollars. SVA professionals have the expertise and knowledge in assisting owners like you, learn how:

  • An entrepreneur purchased and remodeled an existing entertainment facility and added a large restaurant. Two cost segregation studies conducted by SVA resulted in a combined net present value in tax savings of nearly $450,000.
  • An auto dealer built a new dealership with offices included. An SVA cost segregation study resulted in a net present value of deferred taxes greater than $330,000.
  • A new “big box” retail store owner retained SVA to conduct a cost segregation study. The additional depreciation deductions resulted in a net present value tax savings of more than $161,000.

Many different types of commercial properties qualify for cost segregation, let us help you identify whether your commercial property is an undiscovered source of cash.
