Barfield, Murphy, Shank & Smith works with real estate developers, real estate management companies and REITs. That experience keeps us on top of the large number of real estate tax laws that impact such things as lease terms, financing, construction, capitalization and cost allocations.
BMSS can provide services to our real estate clients not typically offered by other firms, such as onsite accounting and bookkeeping work and day-to-day review of business operations.
Our knowledge about a new federal tax law helped a client streamline the company’s reporting statement and created tax-savings potential. We advised another client to restructure the company’s debt in order to increase the amount of deductible tax losses.
BMSS real estate professionals are particularly qualified in the areas of cashflow management, refinancing of debt, lease term analysis options, asset acquisitions and dispositions including tax-free like-kind exchanges, cost-segregation studies and a variety of other real estate-specific issues.
