Offer more specialty tax services for your clients


Get more clients

By adding cost segregation and other “fully engineered tax solutions” to your service offering, you provide a wider range of services and tax benefit analysis in your offering to potential clients. The added tax strategy shows your business to bring more value than the competition. This is especially the case with clients that work within the real estate industry or own the buildings they occupy. Delivering better tax strategy secures more new clients.

Retain more clients

Your valued clients are always looking for the best tax strategies to reduce their tax burden. If they invest in rental homes, are owner occupiers of their business building(s), or are involved in the commercial real estate industry, depreciation optimization through cost segregation can deliver HUGE tax benefits on their building components. When you recommend these services and mitigate (or eliminate) their current tax liability, they will remain loyal and committed long-term client relationships.

You can offer your clients a fully engineered and accounted cost segregation study + other engineered tax solutions by partnering with ELB.

Effective management tool.

Fixed Asset Detail

Our methodology breaks down every component of your client’s property to get the most benefits possible. The detail and precision that we’re able to accomplish on our studies serves as a comprehensive fixed asset tool that meets (we actually exceed) all requirements of the IRS Tangible Property Regulations. This asset management tool can be provided to our client, and to you the CPA in an Excel file to import into your platform and effectively handle future disposition and abandonment, as well as ridding the asset sheet of any “Ghost Assets”.

We identify every detail.

Equal Treatment of Components

Every component straight-line and accelerated has value in our eyes, no matter how small. In our process, we assign a value to every component in the building, whether its acquired or new construction. Then once priced out completely, we assign a life class to each component. As a result, you get maximum benefit from accelerated property and complete detail on the straight-line property components. Other methodologies tend to cherry-pick the easy items and bundle the rest. As a result, they leave money on the table.
