The R&D Tax Credit is the biggest tax credit available to U.S. businesses, yet also one of the most underutilized.

Auto experts who really understand your business

Our 30-year track record of helping businesses of all shapes and sizes has given us a wealth of experience in managing R&D tax credit claims. We take the time to truly understand your business goals and objectives, focussing on how your business innovates in order to identify qualifying expenditures.

What counts as R&D?

If your business is involved with any of the following areas and you are not already claiming R&D tax relief, then it’s likely that you could be.

Projects that may qualify for R&D tax relief include:

  • Vehicle structural analysis 
  • Assembly line efficiency improvements 
  • Vehicle dynamic analysis and testing 
  • Noise, Vibration, and Harshness (NVH) analysis 
  • Material testing 
  • Crash testing and analysis 
  • Design and testing of manufacturing equipment and processes 
  • CAD modeling and simulations 
  • Design, assembly, and testing of component prototypes 
  • Fatigue analysis 

Why R&D Tax Credits?

With no limit on the R&D Tax Credit funding, U.S. businesses can stand to receive several potential benefits. These benefits might include:

  • A reduction in your company’s federal and state tax liabilities
  • Carrying forward money saved to reinvest in further research and development
  • An increase in your cash flow
  • Generating higher company profits and solidifying your business presence
  • Gaining the technological advancements to maintaining competitiveness

We analyze all of your expenses and activities – both past and present – in order to determine the true extent of your eligibility, not just the obvious low-hanging fruit.
