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

Does your business operate in the Chemicals sector?

Transformation and technological development are daily challenges for companies in the chemicals 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.

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:

  • Creating new, second-generation, and improved products
  • Development and implementation of waste reduction and safety processes
  • Formula development, including pilot batch, scale-up processes, and first runs
  • And many more…

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.
