Commercial/Residential Energy Efficiency Investments
The most efficient way to balance energy supply and demand is to control the demand side. When property owners increase the energy efficiency of their commercial and residential buildings with upgraded windows, LED lighting, HVAC equipment, automated controls, improved insulation and building envelope, it’s a win/win for everyone. Property owners and tenants save on their energy bills, the buildings are more comfortable to live in, and utilities don’t have to build additional power plants, transmission lines and gas lines — the cost of which eventually gets passed down to the consumer. This is why energy efficiency investments will likely continue to receive government tax incentives.
Rodman & Rodman’s Green Team can help you determine what projects and investments will provide the best return on investment, calculate potential tax benefits and depreciation, and help you structure your partnership or corporation to take maximum advantage of these incentives. In many cases we can even help you identify and secure the best financing options.
Partnership and Corporate Structuring
One of the biggest struggles facing new startups is organizing their entity in the most effective way. From the initial question of “should we choose a corporate or partnership structure?” to “how will the stakeholders be affected by the results of operations?”, our team can help you make informed and effective decisions. We can assist your strategy and decision making by:
- Structuring your organization to maximize tax benefits for stakeholders
- Working with attorneys to facilitate operating agreements
- Communicating with partner or investor financial teams
Ongoing Tax Advisory Services
Our Green Team CPAs closely monitor proposed and executed changes in the federal and state tax codes and advise our green clients on how they might be affected. We propose new ideas, and adjust strategies to take advantage of the changes. In addition to regular news updates, we can provide research and planning to prepare for project or company changes throughout the year.
