Negotiated Credits & Incentives

We help support your site selection process via our tax credit and incentives negotiation services.

Get more value from discretionary credits and incentives 

Expanding to new regions can drive significant business growth — and create opportunities to offset associated costs.

When companies consider expanding existing operations or investing in new locations and facilities, they are in a position to procure significant benefits in the form of tax credits and incentives. While some tax credits are automatically applied to qualified businesses, others are discretionary and must be negotiated.  

Our integrated, partner-led team of tax and industry professionals helps companies identify and obtain these discretionary credits and incentives. We work closely with state and local economic development agencies throughout the site selection process to evaluate opportunities and help reduce risk for our clients.  

With our negotiation support, you can take full advantage of discretionary credits and incentives, no matter where your expansion journey takes you.
