Cost Segregation Studies

Real property represents one of the largest investments your business will ever make. If you’re not handling it correctly from a tax perspective, you could be paying significantly more to the IRS each year than necessary and facing a tighter cash flow as a result.

At Brady Ware, we help large and small companies perform cost segregation studies. In short, we help you identify asset costs—equipment, furniture, and fixtures—that are buried in building costs. Then, we reclassify those assets to the shortest allowable depreciation life, allowing you to maximize your depreciation deduction and lower your taxes.

To do this, our engineering, construction, and tax experts:

  • Analyze architectural drawings, cost information, and invoices for your site
  • Personally visit your site to identify and uncover assets not shown on architectural drawings
  • Perform an engineering review to divide composite systems into their real property and personal property components
  • Reclassify your assets based on the most current IRS rulings and pronouncements
  • Generate the reports and forms you need for tax filing, and we back up our findings in case of an audit

Some tax firms outsource cost segregation work to a specialty firm. At Brady Ware, our experienced, we will collaborate with you to uncover potential cost savings. When necessary, we partner with one of the country’s leading engineering companies to complete detailed engineering analyses.

We’ve performed hundreds of cost segregation studies over the past 10 years, generating millions of dollars in financial benefits for our clients. We’re often able to reclassify as much as 20% to 55% of building and real estate assets, depending on your facility’s use.

Employment Tax Credits

Sadly, most federal tax credits available to businesses go unclaimed because of the cost, complexity, and time required to access them. The potential savings simply do not justify the laborious effort involved. But what if your business could hand off the calculation and administration of these federal credits to a trusted business advisor?

A strategic partnership with us allows your company to take advantage of alliance partner’s technology and its processing center’s years of experience. This list shows only a few of the many sources of unclaimed dollars available to businesses:

  • The Work Opportunity Tax Credit (up to $2,400 for each qualified new hire who is):
    • A qualified food stamp recipient
    • A qualified Aid to Families with Dependent Children recipient
    • A qualified veteran
    • A qualified ex-felon, pardoned, paroled, or work release individual
    • A vocational rehabilitation referral
    • A qualified summer youth employee
    • A qualified Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipient
    • A qualified individual living within an Empowerment Zone or Enterprise Community
  • The Empowerment Zone Tax Credit (up to $3,000 for each employee living and providing services in an Empowerment Zone)
  • The Renewal Community Tax Credit (up to $1,500 for each newly hired or existing employee who lives and works in the Renewal Community)

Our strategic partnership can help you take advantage of these federal tax savings. The administrative process involved is facilitated with these programs at no risk to interested businesses.

Research and Experimentation Tax Credits

Brady Ware’s expert tax team brings significant experience in identifying business activities that may qualify for the Research and Experimentation Tax Credit. This credit is not a deduction. Instead, the credit is used as an actual reduction of your income tax liability. Our review will ensure that you receive any share of this valuable credit for which you may qualify, thus giving your business a competitive advantage and improving cash flow.

Brady Ware’s tax team will review all aspects of your business to determine which activities qualify for the credit. We can assist your business in either applying for the credit for the first time or maximizing the credit you already receive.

The federal government and many state tax authorities have provided a credit for businesses that invest in research and experimentation. The definition of costs qualifying for the credit is different than what many businesses view as customary research and development activities. Creating new products, developing process changes, and implementing new manufacturing methods are common credit activities.

Brady Ware’s tax team will partner with you to develop a customized approach to your credit study. Examples of our credit services include:

  • Complete credit study
  • Update current year credit activities
  • Review prior year credit calculations
  • Plan for use of future credits

Many common business innovations meet the qualification standards and are eligible for the Research and Experimentation Tax Credit. Our tax professionals have helped many businesses calculate and take advantage of their credit. We can help yours, too.
