Cost Segregation Studies

For new construction, renovation, or significant leasehold improvements, Byrne & Clayton provides cost segregation studies to assist clients recover investments in capital expenditures by minimizing federal and local taxes.  The greatest savings are generated by properly classifying both direct and indirect costs in the appropriate Modified Accelerated Cost Recovery System (MACRS).  Opportunities may exist to reclassify a portion of these costs from thirty-nine-year deppreciable life to a shorter, more accelerated five-year, seven-year, or fifteen-year MACRS class life.  


Asset segregation does not eliminate tax, but does defer tax to future years generating immediate tax savings.  Businesses improve cash flow and minimize business taxable income through cost segregation analyses.
