Business: How property and casualty losses affect the bottom line of a business
Casualty losses can actually be deducted from income tax, but how it depends on the specific situation and the circumstances of the loss. A casualty loss can include any damage or theft of a business’s property, such as a tornado, car accident, or theft.
It’s important to keep detailed records of losses in order to qualify for deduction. What’s also important is to pay close attention to all the tax implications of the losses and factor those losses into your overall business financial plan. .
Methods for handling casualty losses in a business, such as setting up a separate line in the business' accounting record and ensuring the business has proper insurance coverage to cover any losses incurred. It is important to work with an insurance agent every year to make sure the business has the necessary coverage for any potential disasters that could occur, such as floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, or fires.
