R&D tax credits are available to technology businesses that produce or develop new or improved products, processes, principles or methodologies. In addition to “revolutionary” activities, in some cases, the credit may be available if the company has performed “evolutionary” activities such as investing time, money, and resources toward improving its products and processes.

The Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (PATH) Act of 2015 made the R&D Tax Credit permanent and made the R&D Tax Credit more available than ever to small and mid-sized businesses. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 lowered the corporate tax rate, while preserving and keeping permanent the R&D Tax Credit for qualifying US businesses. Changes to the PATH legislation include:

  • US businesses and business owners with revenues less than $50 million can now use the R&D Credit to offset their alternative minimum tax (AMT) and
  • Start-up companies with gross receipts less than $5 million can now use the R&D Credit to reduce their payroll tax liability

The R&D team at Anchin ensures that you can benefit from all tax credits and incentives available to you. Anchin helps you assess your R&D tax credits at all phases of your business, from the time you first consider entering a new market (white space evaluation) and throughout the product lifecycle. We work with clients interested in claiming the R&D credit for the first time, clients who have difficulty meeting the contemporaneous documentation requirements needed to support their R&D claim, and clients who need to reassess their R&D credit calculation because the nature of their business has changed.

We are particularly skilled and experienced at identifying qualifying projects and initiatives in each area of your business and are experts at examining and capturing all allowable expenses towards your company’s research credit. Our dedicated team includes audit, tax, and advisory professionals with years of experience identifying issues and solving problems for every sector within the technology industry including:

  • Communications Equipment
  • Electronics Equipment, Instruments & Components
  • IT Services
  • Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment
  • Software
