A cost segregation study is a review of the costs associated with the acquisition or construction of a building and reclassifying the depreciable life of the various assets in order to improve the cash flow of the business by reducing the tax liability of the firm. This is accomplished by accelerating the depreciation on assets reclassified as personal property components. To determine which assets are to be reclassified, an engineering cost analysis of the facility is performed and the assets listed according to their use or function. The reallocated assets are then assigned a cost by estimation methods or from the owner’s cost records and an appropriate depreciable life determined. The end result is that the owner receives an increased cash flow by trading a non-cash transaction (depreciation) for a cash transaction (lower tax payout) over the life of the facility.
