Engineering businesses may think they don’t qualify for the credit, or may be aware of the credit, but are not taking advantage of the incentive. The definition for the R&D credit encompasses engineering activities, including designing or developing new systems or improved solutions. The U.S. has put these incentives in place and wants these businesses to take full advantage of them. In doing so, engineering businesses can continue steady and strong improvement and innovation in the Unites States.
Structures are exposed to various forces and loads, as well as environmental elements, requiring a high degree of engineering and testing to ensure safety and structural requirements are met. Civil, electrical, environmental, mechanical, product, or structural engineering firms can obtain research and development incentives by way of performing certain day-to-day activities. TTG will help evaluate your activities and expenses to help you take full advantage of the incentives available.
