O'Connor Yu LLP

O'Connor & Yu LLP - Certified Public Accountants

Real Estate

Due to frequent tax legislative change and technological shifts, PE firms and real estate businesses are turning to co-sourcing for their tax and finance functions. Understanding the pressure and the needs of real estate businesses, we leverage our combined industry expertise and prioritize communication by positioning ourselves as a true partner of your team.

The real estate and Private Equity practice represents one of our largest lines of business. Prior to forming O’Connor & Yu LLP, our partners worked in the real estate group of a Top 20 national accounting firm and developed in-depth industry experience. Our expertise enables us to effectively address the most complicated real estate transactions and sophisticated business structures. We routinely handle transactions involving the acquisition, exchange or disposition of property across all asset types—retail, office, hotel, industrial, mixed use and multifamily. Beyond tax compliance and timely investor K-1 delivery, we help you choose the efficient business structure, identify tax savings, handle technical accounting, and develop successful exit strategy.
