Cost Segregation Studies
LVBW, in conjunction with independent professional construction cost consultants, has the expertise to perform cost segregation studies for newly constructed, acquired, or expanded facilities. Through the proper classification of facility costs, immediate benefits are realized through increased depreciation in the early years, resulting in greater tax savings and increased cash flow.
Expense Reduction Analysis
Expense reduction analysis is a process whereby LVBW can help to identify potential cost savings. The first step in the process is to identify which expense category or categories are most likely to provide meaningful expense reductions. The goal of this financial analysis is to identify those expenses that are significant or appear out-of-line. The next step is to complete a diagnostic checklist for each category selected, aimed at identifying potential expense reduction opportunities. Once the diagnostic checklist has been completed, we are ready to begin developing our expense reduction recommendations, including implementation plans.
