Why Choose Acena Consulting?
Working with the staff of Acena Consulting made the process way less painful, and very beneficial in the end. Their patience and knowledge of the R&D process was well worth the time that my staff put into the research. In the end, we were extremely surprised to get back a whole lot of taxes that we already paid.
Technology Company, Hawaii
The team at Acena has been great to work with and they've gone above & beyond to deliver great service. I had been solicited by an unknown company to do the R&D Tax Credit process but was nervous about the risk of it, so I asked our accountant for guidance. He referred us to Acena instead, and they really helped us throughout the entire process. I definitely recommend Acena!
