Cost segregation is a tax planning solution that can be used to speed up tax deductions from depreciation on commercial property. This means that you’ll pay less in taxes as your property gets older so you can use the extra cash to invest back into your business.
If you have built, expanded, renovated, or purchased property within the last 25–39 years, then Allen Accounting And Consulting LLC’s cost segregation services can help your business!

Cost Segregation Process with Allen Accounting And Consulting LLC
The best time to start thinking about cost segregation is within the first year of purchase, but don’t worry if you’ve been around for longer and would like to start now. A cost segregation study is allowed up to 20 years after you purchased the building. For you, that means that you can go back and claim earlier deductions that you’ve missed. Our experts will be able to help you get the most out of our services.
Our Four-Step Cost Segregation Process:
Inspection: We start with a professional inspection of the whole building and property, ensuring that you get the most out of our service. A building engineer or inspector will be able to judge what will be around longer and what should be claimed as an expense earlier on.
Valuation: After the inspection, we accurately estimate the value of the property, as well as its various components. Our experience and attention to detail make sure that nothing is forgotten.
Classification: We then organize every aspect into the right tax classification so it will be easier to report.
Cost Segregation Result Schedule: Following this we provide you with a report detailing how to adjust the timing of your tax deductions so that we maximize your savings.
Our Cost Segregation Services
While a structure may last a long time, chances are there are several other things inside a commercial property that will need replacing. You’ll be able to claim these items as things that decrease the value of your business property, which means you’ll pay less in taxes. You can also claim the replacement of most of these items as a business expense. Get in touch with our experts today and find out what our cost segregation services can do for your business.
