ATTENTION COMMERCIAL PROPERTY OWNERS: GET AN ABANDONMENT STUDY DONE AFTER PURCHASE!
What is an Abandonment Study?
An abandonment study is a very detailed engineering analysis of building components. These studies are used to estimate individual component costs that are being retired or abandoned. Abandonment studies are usually performed when renovations or improvements are made during the normal ownership period of buildings, properties, or tenant improvements. According to the IRS, the study can be significant. Also, the data from the study could support insurance savings or claims if there are earned losses.
Why Is It Important to Get One Done Before Renovating Commercial Property?
It is important to have an abandonment study before renovating commercial property because it provides the details and documentation necessary to write off abandoned assets that were once buried in the cost of the building. A study can generate significant additional depreciation for the commercial property. Because depreciation is increased, substantial tax reduction can be affected. The study allows demolished assets to be deducted in the year earned.
What’s Documented in An Abandonment Study?
An abandonment study identifies the value of the demolished or renovated property.
Why Will a Detailed Abandonment Study Improve Your Overall Tax Savings with Your Cost Segregation Study?
The combination of this study with a cost segregation study can help to maximize the depreciation available on 100% of the building components. This leaves no mystery when uncovering qualifying abandonment assets.
