Tax Incentive - Foodservice Equipment Buyers Take Note! Take Advantage While This Offer Lasts!

Posted 1:30 PM by

While perusing some months-old issues of Foodservice Equipment Reports magazine, I noticed a small article that I wanted to bring to your attention immediately! If you are looking to buy foodservice equipment in the near future, you might want to look into purchasing sooner rather than later. The article below outlines an amazing opportunity that allows foodservice operations to write off equipment costs immediately, instead of spreading it out over several years, you must purchase before the end of the year to receive the maximum benefits this bill allows! I included a copy of the article found in the magazine's online archives followed by a link to the particulars of the Act on http://www.irs.gov below:

Tax Incentive Makes Sense For Equipment Buyers

04/01/2011

April may be tax month, but there are still eight months left this year to secure some important tax perks for purchasing or selling equipment. The Small Business Jobs and Credit Act of 2010, signed by President Obama last September, provides tax relief for foodservice operations and small businesses and assistance in gaining access to capital.

The legislation allows foodservice operations to write off up to $500,000 of equipment costs immediately, rather than recovering the entire cost over a multi-year depreciation schedule. The purchase must be completed during the ’11 tax year.

The bill also extends expensing limits to restaurant structural improvements, new construction and leasehold and retail improvements. As part of the proposed $500,000 limit, operators can expense $250,000 of those costs the year they incur them, through ’11. Previously, operators could recover these costs only through a 39½-year depreciation schedule.

The legislation also includes incentives that make it easier to obtain Small Business Administration-backed loans.

This article can be found at: http://www.fermag.com/about-us/current-issue/single-issue-article/tax-incentive-makes-sense-for-equipment-buyers/461c372276.html

Diagnosing Non-Warranted Refrigeration Problems

Posted 4:48 PM by

Is your refrigerator or freezer not holding proper temperature?

Before making a service call that could turn out to be unnecessary and expensive, please be sure the following guidelines have been met:

1. Make sure the condenser is clean and not blocked by dust or dirt which WILL prevent a freezer or refrigerator from holding proper temperature. For example: If a refrigerator's holding temperature is a few degrees or more higher than a manufacturer's spec, there is a good chance that the condenser needs to be cleaned. Dirty condensers block the outside air needed to remove heat from the cabinet. Dirty condensers can also cause component failures. Be sure to clean every 4 to 6 weeks with a brush or vacuum!

2. Make sure the interior temperature control is NOT set to high which could cause the evaporator to freeze thus preventing the cabinet from pulling down to proper temperature. If the evaporator is frozen, unplug the unit overnight to thaw. Plug back in the unit in the morning.

3. Make sure the cabinet is level. Unleveled cabinets caused by uneven floors can prevent the doors from leveling and sealing properly thus allowing outside warm air inside the cabinet. Please call C&T if castor shims are necessary to level the cabinet.

4. Make sure product temperature is being checked which is normally 33° to 38°F inside a refrigerator, 41°F at the top of a prep table and minus 0° to -10°F in a freezer depending on the product load.

If these suggestions do not correct your temp issues, please call your nearest C&T Design location today.
