Greater Innovation & Faster Growth

The global systems integration market is growing exponentially; the pandemic has further accelerated this growth. But many integrators are struggling to find enough technical talent here in the U.S. to keep up with the increase in demand. Shortage in STEM talent and the higher competition for workers are already well-documented issues the industry is losing sleep over.

It is incentives like the R&D Tax Credit that will help system Integrators mitigate these challenges and stay ahead of the curve, while uncovering additional dollars for innovation and business growth.

Importance of the R&D Tax Credit

The Research and Development (“R&D”) tax credit has continuously evolved since its inception in the 1980s. Introduced to increase the competitiveness of U.S.-based businesses to conduct innovative activities, it has now grown into one of the largest tax credits available. The credit has since been made permanent to incentivize companies to hire technical talent and continue innovating.

R&D Tax Credit isn’t always associated with beakers and lab coats. In fact, the eligible activities extend beyond product development to include daily activities such as:

  • Programming control systems;
  • Implementing automated systems; and
  • Designing and installing custom control and automation solutions.
