Staying one step ahead of cybercriminals is a constant battle. Proprietary tenant information, wire transfers and network-enabled building management systems are high-risk areas for real estate companies. When compromised, the fallout can be costly. Don’t let your company fall victim.

Optimizing Tax Deductions

Tax rules on depreciation have grown in complexity as part of the tangible property regulations, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) and the CARES Act. Proper documentation is also required to qualify for the real estate professional status tax benefit. Expertly navigate these rules to maximize your available tax deductions.

Digital Transformation

Location, location, location; where your employees are located now plays a much smaller role in the current business environment thanks to the ability to work remotely. Ensuring your team has the necessary cloud and collaboration tools is vital to staying efficient and productive.
