Many companies that develop software and technology are unaware that the government offers generous research and development (R&D) incentive programs. And, those that are aware often fail to capture the full extent of tax credits for R&D to which they are entitled. For example, many companies may be capturing relevant expenses from their programming cost centers, but not all qualifying R&D activities take place in traditional programming departments. Additionally, many companies do not consider the aforementioned incentives because they may not develop software that is considered groundbreaking in the industry. If you think that you need to have developed groundbreaking software platforms for Fortune 500 software companies in order to be conducting qualified activities as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, think again.
If your company develops software applications in any industry, there is a strong chance that you could benefit from an R&D Tax Credit study. Let alliantgroup’s software experts help you claim the credits that you deserve!
