Case study – This TPR compliance plan boosted a manufacturer’s profit
Our client is a regional manufacturer of corrugated paper products with several production facilities located throughout the Midwest. The company produces over 125M in annual revenue across several entities, and has a significant number of fixed assets consisting primarily of machinery, equipment, and real property. As of late 2013, this client’s capitalization policy was rather informal, had not been memorialized in writing, and varied across its related entities. The policy did not allow for the expensing of capital purchases greater than $1,000. In addition, the company was capitalizing many repair and maintenance activities.
