How CTI makes tax incentives easy


Resource Constraint

A food manufacturer engaged CTI for a R&D study, but due to cutbacks and workload, CTI was limited as to how much time could be spent directly interfacing with staff to learn about operations and the department’s 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.

I really liked the audit protection, operating with the knowledge that CTI stands behind its work. Audit protection, personal relationships, and the ease of the step-by-step process...I could not be happier with the results.
