R&D Tax Credits: Opportunities and Pitfalls
Many companies overlook a tax incentive for research and development (R&D) activities because they apply their own definition of R&D and do not view many of the day-to-day design and development activities as R&D. In our experience, many of the day-to-day activities of design/build contractors and mechanical design, engineering, and architectural services may qualify for this incentive. In addition, others assume they are not large enough to qualify for the credit or simply do not view the activities they do as R&D.
In this webinar, you will learn how:
  • To identify the types of activities and expenditures that can qualify for the R&D tax credit.
  • The R&D credit can benefit your company by reducing the current and future cash outlays for taxes and potentially generating refunds for taxes previously paid.
  • R&D credits can generate cash flow even if the economy has negatively impacted your business and profitability is down.
In addition to the R&D credit information, don’t miss out on a review of the recommended documentation to substantiate the activities and expenses qualifying for the credit.
Who should attend?
This webinar is intended for CFOs and controllers. To maximize the benefit of the webinar, we also recommend including operations executives directly involved in design and development activities.
