Medical / Dental / Veterinarian
Medical / Dental facilities, much like standard office buildings, lend themselves well to cost segregation. Additionally, owners can expect larger five-year benefits due to the requisite interior finish out. Veterinarian clinics also work along similar lines.
Our cost segregation studies identify all qualifying interior items, focusing on cabinetry, special electrical and special plumbing often associated with these assets. Our studies also break out the IRS mandated Units of Property when considering the long-term components present in your building.
Medical/Dental facility studies typically pay back the cost of the study in the range of 15 to 1 up to more than 200 to 1 in the first year of study use. Note the actual results highlighted in the table below.
First year savings range from roughly $45,000 up to in excess of $680,000 for a very large asset!
