With consumers spending less, restaurant owners feel the brunt of a tightened economy. A cost segregation study done by Segregation Holding Limited will greatly increase your current cash flow as well as lower your federal income tax burden.

Have you recently renovated your restaurant?

The cost segregation study will help to identify personal property assets depreciation time to 5 or 7 years which will reduce the current tax obligations which in turn can increase the business’s cash flow. Imagine having more money to continue making improvements on your restaurant or to finally take that much needed vacation to Europe?

Many times once the construction is completed we are unable to reclassify the asset due to how it was completed. However, any time is the perfect time to consider having a cost segregation study done simply because it reduces your income taxes…that is always good!
