Accelerated Building Depreciation (Cost Segregation)
Cost Segregation is a commonly used strategic tax planning tool that allows companies who have constructed, purchased or remodeled any kind of real estate to increase cash flow by accelerating depreciation deductions and deferring federal and state income taxes.
When you purchase a building, not only does it include the building structure, but it also includes all of the interior and exterior components. On average, 20% to 40% of those components fall into tax categories that can be written off much quicker than the building structure. A Cost Segregation Study dissects the construction cost or purchase price of the property that would otherwise be depreciated over 39 years. The primary goal of a Cost Segregation Study is to identify all property-related costs that can be depreciated over 5, 7 and 15 years. The benefit of working with the team at NVIE is that we often develop a much better understanding of your business processes and facility than other firms who might offer a similar service.
Federal Research & Development Tax Credit
The R&D Tax Credit, first enacted in 1981, has been one of the most valuable credits leveraged by companies. Every year, the R&D credit yields billions of dollars in federal benefits to companies engaged in qualifying research. Thousands of companies take advantage of the credit across several industries including manufacturing. Working closely with the team at NVIE we will ensure that all of your qualified activities are properly identified and that the IRS’s four-part test is met for each. As such we will maximize your potential benefits which may include the following.
Improved cash flow.
Reduction of effective tax rate.
Carry forward of the tax credit for up to 20 years.
Dollar-for-dollar reduction in Federal Income Tax liability.
Look back studies may identify unclaimed credits for the prior 3 or 4 tax years.

Technology-Driven Market Intelligence (TDMI) is a service that provides a systematic and comprehensive approach to technology-focused market intelligence. Unlike traditional market research, TDMI directly considers the technical and market viability of your asset and provides the customized actionable intelligence you need.

"ExporTech introduced us to a lot of people who can help us and are excited to help us. If it weren't for ExporTech, I would never have known about the things I didn't know existed. It opened up my eyes to a different world. In the last 4 months since ExporTech, we made more money (in international) than we did in the previous 12 months. Not a lot of money, but it's promising."
