Brooklyn Office Space Tax Credits & Incentives

Whether you are a tech startup or a large established firm, moving your office to Brooklyn makes you eligible for lucrative financial incentives. Please contact our Two Trees commercial leasing team to learn more about how your company can qualify.

Relocation Employment Assistance Program (REAP)

REAP

Relocation Employment Assistance Program

$25

Up to $25 per Square Foot to Tenants

$3,000

Annual benefits for each full-time employee

This city program benefits companies relocating to Brooklyn from Manhattan (below 96th St) or outside of NYC, by providing $3,000 annually for each full-time employee. Eligible companies must sign an office lease for at least a 3-year term and may collect the REAP benefits for up to 12 years. Companies may redeem their REAP benefits as a tax credit against city taxes, however, in the case of start-ups or small businesses not generating sufficient taxable income, REAP benefits may be collected as a direct payment from the city.

Calculate how much you can save with REAP by relocating to Brooklyn.

EXAMPLE: A Manhattan-based company relocates their office with 30 full-time employees from Manhattan to DUMBO. The asking price for the 5,000 SF office is $52.00 PRSF, which is $260,000 in rent a year. Shortly after submitting an annual NYC tax filing, they receive a REAP benefit check from the city for $90,000 ($3,000 x 30); thus reducing the rent from $52.00 PRSF to $34.00 PRSF and their annual total from $260,000 to $170,000.
