WE ARE THE BEST AT WHAT WE DO. WHY?
Accountants are simply not trained to answer engineering questions. The IRS uses degreed engineers to audit the R&E credit; your company should have the same advantage.
Our team of engineers can quickly understand the projects that your company is working on and how to properly qualify each activity. Typically, CPA groups only focus on the simple, low hanging fruit of research and development for their clients.
A team of pure accountants lacks the expertise to maximize these credits in a manner that will withstand the scrutiny of an IRS or State review(s) . As a result, innovative companies either miss out on precious funds that give them an advantage or run the risk of losing their lucrative credits under audit.
