Lowering the Cost of Emission Reduction by Dr Michael Ridley investigates a novel way to reduce the cost of carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide emission reduction. This book asks whether allowing countries to substitute emission reduction undertaken abroad in lieu of emission reduction at home will reduce the cost of emission reduction and allow more rapid and acute falls in pollution.
With powerful, clearly written advice on how to control and to reduce dramatically unemployment insurance compensation taxes, here is an authoritative, useful guide to the UIC system. The authors draw upon their extensive experience to detail intricacies and pitfalls in the UIC system; they provide principles and strategies to help employers avoid them. With information on documenting and warning employees in cases where discharge may be imminent, proper use of the information in this book can help protect a company against unwarranted UIC tax charges. The authors also guide employers through the appeals process, demonstrating how to prepare, organize, and present a UIC case. Also included are myths and misconceptions about the UIC system, a look inside a local UIC office, and in-depth examination of how to deal with the UIC decision process, from the local office to the highest level of administrative appeal. This guide is an indispensible tool for anyone involved in hiring, discharging, or dealing with unemployment issues. Complete with sample forms and letters, a sample script of a typical UIC hearing, and comprehensive glossary, Controlling Unemployment Insurance Costs is a unique resource for employers in the private sector, and can also be used effectively by federal, state, and local government agencies. Human resource managers in universities and schools, non-profit organizations, and attorneys and paralegals will also find it valuable.
Regulations to promote health and safety may be costly relative to the expected health and safety benefits and may actually have negative effects on health and safety. These negative effects, or costs, may be due to reduced private spending on health and safety, moral hazard, or the creation of new risks. The Mortality Costs of Regulatory Expenditures considers the use of cost-benefit analysis, risk-risk analysis, and health-health analysis to determine the mortality cost associated with regulatory expenditures.
This volume contains the papers presented at the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on "Magnetism and Structure in Systems of Reduced Dimension", held at l'Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques de Cargese - U.M.S. - C.N.R.S. - Universite de Corte- Universite de Nice Sophia - Antipolis during June 15-19, 1992. The ordering of papers in the volume reflects the sequence of papers presented at the workshop. The aim was not to segregate the papers into rigidly defmed areas but to group the papers into small clusters, each cluster having a common theme. In this way the parallel, rather than serial, development of areas such as preparation of films, magnetic and structural characterization was highlighted. Indeed the success of the field depends on such parallel development and is assisted by workshops of this nature and the international collaborations which they foster. The organizers and participants of the NATO workshop express their thanks to Mme. Marie-France Hanseier and the staff at l'Institut d'Etudes Scientifiques de Cargese- U.M.S. - C.N.R.S. - Universite de Corte - Universite de Nice Sophia - Antipolis for making the workshop and local arrangements a memorable success. Warm thanks are also expressed to Varadachari Sadagopan and Pascal Stefanou for their encouragement and help in making the workshop a reality. We are also grateful to Kristl Hathaway, Larry Cooper and Gary Prinz for advice in developing the workshop program.
This expert guide walks you through the practice of cost segregation analysis, which enables property owners to <b>defer taxes and benefit from “accelerated cost recovery” through depreciation deductions</b> on assets that are properly identified and classified. A relatively new practice that evolved from various court decisions and Internal Revenue Service rulings, cost segregation can be applied to new buildings under construction, renovations of existing buildings, leasehold improvements, and purchased real estate –  going back as far as 1987. <p> Cost segregation practice requires knowledge of both tax law and the construction process. In this book, the authors share their expertise in these areas with tax and accounting professionals, cost segregation consultants, facility owners, architects and general contractors –  providing guidance on major aspects of a professional, defensible cost segregation study, including: <ul type="disc"> <li>The legal framework for cost segregation, as defined by the IRS, tax courts, and federal agencies <li>Review of key IRS cases, court rulings, and revenue procedures <li>Classification and depreciation methods <li>Understanding construction plans and specifications <li>Professional takeoff and cost estimating procedures <li>Optimizing cost segregation in new construction –  from design choices to proper project documentation </ul> <p> With a glossary of terms, sample cost segregation estimates for various building types, key information resources, and updates via a dedicated website, <i>The Practice of Cost Segregation Analysis</i> is a must-have resource.
