AuditYou are a savvy business owner. Part of your business acumen includes knowledge of potential tax credits that can benefit your bottom line. However, the words “potential for audit” linger in the back of your mind.

Audits rightly concern business owners. But that concern can be mitigated if you partner with a firm possessing the experience and resources your business deserves, like CTI. Not all consulting firms are created equal.

CTI regularly provides audit defense as part of our product offering. Our professionals work to substantiate credits while identifying documentation and information to assist in the event of an audit. We work with your subject matter experts to identify the information that quantifies and qualifies costs towards credits.

Furthermore, CTI stays current on rulings and regulatory changes that could affect the ultimate credits. We proactively implement modifications and updates that result in well-rounded studies. We also follow pending legislation through Congress to be able to provide up-to-date benefits that maximize the potential savings for your business.
