Research and Development (R&D) tax credits are a powerful though underutilized tool that can make a big difference for small to mid size construction companies. Many recent industry innovations including BIM (Building Information Management) modeling and GPS laser plotting along with a push for more energy efficient, “greener” designs have transformed development projects within the industry. Due to the increasingly technical nature of system and structure design, many activities performed by companies in the construction industry may qualify for R&D tax credits.

Anchin’s professionals understand the important issues that arise when examining potentially qualifying construction industry projects and related expenses. Our industry in accurate, highly defendable tax credit calculations.

“Our construction company is growing and we needed advisors who could help us focus on the big picture. Partnering with Terry and the team at Anchin two years ago was one of the best moves we have made as a business. We feel that that they treat our business as if it were their own. They are responsive and provide proactive tax saving ideas for our family business. With multiple generations in the business and a need for estate and family planning, we know we can count on Anchin. Anchin has helped to guide us down a path towards greater success and we’re excited to see what the future holds for our company.”
