How CTI makes tax incentives easy


Resource Constraints

An architecture firm engaged CTI for an R&D study. But due to cutbacks and workload, CTI was limited as to how much time they could spend directly interfacing with technical staff to learn about operations and departments’ R&D activities.

Reconstruct Expenses

CTI kept interviews with key staff to a minimum and reconstructed project expenses for wages, supplies, and materials by meticulously reviewing invoices and other documentation. CTI quantified all qualified expenditures and exceeded the original R&D credit estimate.

CTI identified almost $2 million in R&D tax credits over three years. We’ve built a rapport and consistent methodology with CTI that makes for an efficient study process and credit amounts beyond our expectations.
