Date: August 19, 2015
Time: 1:30-2:00 PM ET / 10:30-11:00 AM PT

Join BDO and Unanet in a discussion of R&D tax credits.  

If your company has financed efforts to develop or improve the functionality or performance of its products, manufacturing processes, or software — or if it plans to do so — you may have an opportunity to generate cash from investments you’ve already made or plan to make.   

These efforts, whether they succeed or not, generally qualify as “R&D” for the R&D tax credit and are worth on average up to about 15% of qualified spending. Qualified spending includes taxable wage, contractor, supply, and computer-time-sharing expenses for attempts to make things better, faster, cheaper, or greener. 

In some cases the benefit of R&D credits can be significantly larger than 15%, up to as much as 40%; and even businesses that aren’t paying taxes currently can benefit currently, because many states’ R&D credits are refundable or transferable. 

To find out more, please join us for a complimentary 20-minute webcast. Our agenda: 
  • Benefits of the R&D tax credit 
  • Who’s eligible 
  • What activities qualify 
  • What costs qualify 
  • What should you do if you think you may have an R&D credit opportunity 
If you’re already claiming R&D credits, we’ll also talk about how to enhance the process by which you identify qualified activities and costs
