• Site Selection
    and Incentives

Maximizing investments in people, capital, and facilities.

In today’s competitive landscape, the location of a facility – and the level of incentives secured – can have a profound impact on the bottom line. As thousands of jurisdictions and elected officials around the world aggressively compete for new jobs and investment dollars, it is more important (and more difficult) than ever for corporate decision-makers to determine the true value of incentive packages. At the same time, actually collecting on the promises made over a multi-year project can be an even more daunting task.
BDO’s Corporate Real Estate Advisory team has decades of experience negotiating and securing some of the largest incentives packages ever offered in North America. BDO has earned a credible reputation with senior government officials based on our deep experience and long track record of advising companies with site selection and corporate relocations.  This allows us to provide our clients with the strongest incentive results.
Our team has diversified industry experience working on major projects ranging from locating new corporate headquarters, advising on back office relocations and renewals, and finding new greenfield sites for major manufacturing facilities.  Our political, geographic, and technical tax knowledge of the incentives programs, combined with our relationships with key political players provides our clients with a distinct competitive advantage.
Our methodology is customized to be project specific and is designed to identify, maximize, and secure usable tax and business incentives.  Most importantly, our 100% dedication to the incentives compliance process ensures that every dollar awarded is actually collected.
