We've Saved Businesses Over $1 Billion Dollars In
Unclaimed Tax Credits, Incentives & Operational Expenses
DID YOU KNOW?
Most businesses today fail to take advantage of legitimate deductions and incentives, due to complicated and ever-changing tax laws that confound even the best Accountants and CPAs.
In addition, many businesses are unknowingly overpaying for operational expenses that can add up to thousands of dollars a month. Money that could be used for improvements, inventory, staffing or working capital.
WHAT WE DO
We analyze specific areas that can uncover significant benefits and savings. Our expert research team has helped thousands of businesses recover lost deductions, incentives and credits, as well as reducing ongoing operational costs. Focus areas include:
Property Tax Mitigation
Outside of income taxes, the single largest recurring charge for commercial property owners and real estate investors are property taxes. Our in-depth assessment of asset value has the potential to decrease expenses and create immediate cash flow.
Cost Segregation is an IRS-approved tax strategy that permits commercial real estate owners to reclassify property as more rapidly depreciating personal property, resulting in significant cash flow benefits, both in the present, as well as in the future.
R & D Credits
Manufacturers and other technical based operations are often eligible for lucrative tax credits, as defined by The Research and Development Tax Credit, which was enacted in 1981 to encourage American investment in innovation.
Over 70% of all companies have been or are being currently overcharged for their workers’ compensation plans. Our Audit identifies and recovers premium overcharges by reviewing the past five to seven years of classifications and ratings.
Parcel & Shipping
Through our Shipping Audit service, clients can expect to see up to 3% hard-dollar savings in the form of refunds from their carrier. Our clients average an additional 7% savings through the use of our reporting tools and cost saving optimization analytics.
The Energy Policy Act of 2005 allows companies to claim a tax deduction of up to $1.80 per sq. foot for improving the energy efficiency of their existing commercial buildings or by designing higher efficiency into new buildings.
Waste & Recycling
80% of commercial businesses can benefit and save with a Waste Audit. Our comprehensive audit lowers monthly expenses for solid waste, medical waste, and recycling of disposables by finding billing errors and overcharges.
Local, State and Federal tax incentive programs allow private-for-profit employers to reduce their taxable liability on the hiring of qualified individuals. Tax credits can range anywhere from $2,400 to $9,600 per qualified hire.
