Business Incentives & Tax Credits

We help you identify and secure business tax credits and negotiate discretionary incentives.

Fund your future with tax credits and incentives

Opportunity takes investment — and to invest, businesses need financial flexibility. 

Businesses can free up funding by taking advantage of the wide range of tax credits and incentives available at the federal, state and local levels, as well as internationally. However, meeting the criteria to qualify for the different programs can be a complex undertaking.   

BDO helps you capture business tax credits and discretionary incentives across jurisdictions. We guide you through the entire process, from identifying attractive opportunities for current, retroactive and future tax years, to procurement and negotiation, to ongoing compliance. We also advise on how to apply business tax credits and incentives to support strategic business objectives – whether you’re seeking financing for innovation  or focused on improving margins. For businesses that are onshoring or expanding U.S. operations, in addition to incentives negotiation, BDO can provide site selection support to determine an optimal location for new facilities, achieve operational synergies and additional cost savings.

Through our holistic, technology-enabled approach, we are proactive in bringing cost-saving and cash generation ideas to our clients.
