Navigating R&D Tax Rules with Tax Reform

Event Details

Maximizing your organization’s available research and development (R&D) tax credit requires specialized knowledge of the industry, tax law, and regulatory oversight. Does your team have the necessary skills and processes?

The R&D credit is now even more valuable under tax reform. Overlooked and improper interpretations of the R&D tax credit can cost organizations a lot in terms of time and resources invested in claiming the credit and losing portions of the credit under IRS exam. Established organizations can easily fall into a routine of only claiming credit for the same activities that they did the year before, without re-examining what changes have occurred in the business that could open up new credit opportunities. Conversely, emerging leaders in the life sciences arena are often unaware of how the R&D credit can help their business grow. A yearly "fresh look" at company activities could result in an increased credit benefit, new areas of credit opportunity, and potential safe harbors available under a new Large Business and International (LB&I) directive.

During this webinar, we will explore specific examples of how specialized knowledge in life sciences and tax law are directly affecting companies' bottom lines each year. After participating in this webinar, you should be able to:

  • Compare your current R&D tax credit effort to industry benchmarks
  • Perform a gap analysis of your current filing practices
  • Articulate what specialized knowledge is required to help maximize each year’s applied credit
  • Explore how tax reform and the new ASC 730 LB&I directive may affect your claim

In an industry that is often private about the inner workings of its financial operations, this is your chance to benchmark your efforts against leading practices and determine what opportunities your team might be missing out on each year.
