R&D Tax Credits for Agriculture Businesses

The R&D Tax Credit is the biggest tax credit available to U.S. businesses, yet also one of the most underutilized – particularly in the farming and agriculture sectors.

Does your business operate in the Agriculture sector?

Transformation and technological development are daily challenges for companies in the agriculture sector. However, resolving many of these technical challenges often qualifies as research and development from a tax perspective and you’re more than likely to be eligible for generous tax relief. In order to claim the full amount of R&D tax credits you may have earned through innovations in farming and agriculture, it’s often best to consult with R&D tax credit experts like Ayming.
