Cost Segregation

Kimmel Consulting LLC has performed numerous cost segregation studies which have resulted in significant tax savings for clients. Whether you have purchased an existing facility or constructed a building from the ground up. Owning real estate represents a significant investment for any business or investor.

Cost segregation is a tax deferral strategy that enables you to effectively frontload depreciation deductions into the early years of ownership. This is accomplished by segregating the components of the facility into the allowable asset classifications and recovery periods for federal and state income tax purposes. The end result is significantly shorter lives for many of the facilities' components. The shorter lives allows the component's cost to be recovered over a 5, 7, or 10 year period rather than the 39-year life for commercial and 27.5 year life for residential properties. The shorter tax lives results in lower taxes in the early years which results in higher cash flow.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Completing a merger or acquisition requires you to make many strategic decisions. The importance of developing a thorough strategy cannot be overstated. Kimmel Consulting LLC has the experience to support companies through many of the aspects of a merger and acquisition including:

  • Due diligence analysis

The due diligence process should be comprehensive. It is in both the buyer's and seller's best interest to complete due diligence in order to avoid disputes later.

If you are thinking of acquiring a private company, make sure your decision is based on thorough due diligence, realistic financial projections, focused post-acquisition business and integration plans and sound valuation analyses.

We are committed to providing you with financial advice throughout the transaction that will improve your odds for success.

Estate and Succession Planning

At Kimmel Consulting LLC, we listen to our clients and help them to identify their goals. Once these goals are established, we help our clients develop and implement individual estate plans.

The state and federal tax laws provide a significant incentive to individuals of all income levels to consider the need for effective estate planning. In a business context, this also includes advance planning for the orderly transition of the management and ownership of the business. Your estate can include:

  • Bank and money market accounts
  • Investments
  • Retirement benefits from employers
  • Personal residence and other real estate
  • IRAs
  • Insurance policies
  • Collectibles
  • Personal belongings

These assets need to be protected by a well designed and implemented estate plan. An untimely death coupled with inadequate planning can create a complicated probate process, massive tax implications and significant loss of wealth. Sometimes relatively simple changes can result in substantial tax savings.

We work closely with our clients and their attorneys, insurance and investment advisors, bank trust officers, etc. We review our clients' existing wills and trust documents and offer suggestions for changes to help clients achieve their goals and minimize income and estate taxes for their family members.
