Research and development tax credits are a powerful weapon in this competitive global marketplace. Yet, most small businesses don’t take advantage of them.

If your company develops or improves on products, processes, software, techniques or formulas then this seminar can have an important impact on your growth and success.

In our session, we will:
• Discuss the value and bottom-line dollars R&D tax credits bring;
• Review the rules and activities that qualify;
• Look at how to document your activities to streamline the R&D credit calculation;
• Walk through the application process in Arizona to generate refunds;
• Review case studies to see the impact the R&D tax credit can have on a business.

Companies in the Bioscience, Aerospace/Defense, Software, Technology, Engineering, Semi-conductor, Engineering, Food & General Manufacturing will benefit from this critical information.
