Fixed Asset Inventory
An accurate Fixed Asset Inventory helps identify common issues many companies face, such as ghost assets, partial retirements, assets eligible for exemption, assets eligible for beneficial classification and embedded non-taxable costs. For these companies, we conduct line-by-line reviews of both owned and leased assets, and reconcile the assets on the floor to those on the balance sheet.
Benefits of Fixed Asset Inventory and Reconciliation include:
It Can Pay for Itself
Clients can see a potential 30-40% reduction to property taxes, income taxes and insurance premiums.
Reduced Property Taxes
Recognizing previously unrecorded disposals will prevent over-reporting on personal property tax returns. Tax liabilities will be reduced in the future and in some cases, the two most recent tax years. Additional tax planning can be incorporated into the process, including identification of partial retirements, exempt assets (e.g., software, intangibles and pollution control equipment), maximization of abatements, as well as assets eligible for beneficial depreciation.
Reduced Income Taxes
Assets physically disposed of in a prior year, but which are still capitalized and depreciated for Federal and State income taxes, can be written off in the current year. Any un-depreciated tax basis will be written-off against current year taxable income.
Independent verification of assets provides assurance in the face of government audit and compliance with Sarbanes-Oxley, J-SOx and similar regulations is enhanced. Our process can be tailored to fit you internal control requirements and assist in meeting the strict testing necessary to assure the confidence of the financial statements.
Avoid Unnecessary Purchases
Idle assets identified by the process can be efficiently redeployed to areas of need.
