How the R&D Tax Credit Helps Engineering Firms

The R&D Tax Credit remains in place as one of the most valuable incentives available for the benefit of engineering firms. As new problems are tackled, and as firms adapt to the new landscape, the innovations brought forward by engineers qualify for the R&D Tax Credit. Engineering firms across America are being refunded with these lucrative tax credits for their efforts toward improving the quality of services, processes, and products.

How the R&D Tax Credit can Offset Supply Chain Disruptions

The global events in the past two years have affected many industries across the U.S., including engineering firms. Many firms faced disruptions, like material shortages, project delays, and extra labor costs. This is where the R&D Tax Credit can play a crucial role by helping engineering firms leverage federal incentives to stay ahead. Engineering firms can use this permanent incentive to invest in new technology, optimize labor costs, retain talent, accelerate growth, and increase competitiveness in the industry.
