Business Trends: Benefits of Fixed Asset Planning & Cost Segregation

Course Description
Fixed asset planning is an excellent way to identify deductions that maximize cash flow and reduce income tax liability. Opportunities arise when looking at building and building improvement assets that are associated with a building purchase, new construction or renovation. Typically these assets are given a long-lived recovery period and useful life. However, for tax purposes, a portion, or all, of the asset's cost may receive a shorter recovery period with bonus treatment, and may even qualify for full expensing. Fixed asset planning utilizes cost segregation engineering techniques to realize the significant tax savings embedded within building and building improvement assets.

This webinar will discuss the process and benefits of fixed asset planning.

Learning Objectives:

 - Discuss the importance of fixed asset planning when considering your tax strategy
 - Explain how tax reform and bonus have changed the fixed asset landscape
 - Identify the triggers within your fixed asset listing that lead to accelerated deductions
 - Demonstrate how to utilize cost segregation engineering techniques to unlock unrealized tax savings
