Yes I am interested in filing an R&D claim but I will be working with my accounting firm.
Accountants are not engineers. We do not compete against accountants, but work closely with them to capture the costs for the projects that qualify. To properly prepare a claim in order to maximize the full financial benefits, it takes over 300 hours of our time plus travel. That is why we work on contingency because very few companies would elect to pay us by the hour up front and then to possibly have the claim rejected. Anything less, comprises the success of the claim and the tax credit potential. We will put in as many hours necessary to maximize your tax credit or refund without burdening your cash-flow position and consuming your budget.
