Business Retention Tool

Increase Your Cash Flow by Decreasing Tax Liabilities Through Cost Segregation
CALED has a new tool to assist in job and business retention by providing local companies with an engineering-based, cost segregation study that allows them to dramatically increase their operational cash flow by accelerating their asset depreciation on Federal taxes. This program will provide a no-cost analysis of the potential cash benefits available. Fees for the actual study are contingent on the benefit received. There is no risk involved for the company, and no cost to the economic development organization.

"The addition of these cost segregation services allows our members to help existing companies in their communities strengthen their bottom line as California recovers from the current downturn. CALED's economic development programs are not just about attracting new business, they're also focused on assisting our current business partners to thrive and grow in California." -Wayne Schell, President & CEO, CALED
