International startups comprise a growing number of companies in the U.S., and these companies are consistently stimulating the economy here through growth and innovation. However, many are not aware of all the financial incentives available to them in the United States, including the Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credit. The U.S. definition of R&D is incredibly broad – as long as the U.S. operations include developing or improving your technology and that work is primarily in a hard science field, there is likely R&D occurring. As a U.S. startup, the R&D Credit would allow you to reduce payroll tax liability, which is usually one of the first expenses your business will incur, or income tax liability. Some form of the Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit exists across many countries so it might be something you’re familiar with and already claiming locally. For foreign companies with U.S. operations currently or those currently in the process of expanding here, this is a great incentive to take advantage of. Come listen to Leyton’s webinar on May 5th explaining the U.S. R&D Credit, the benefits you’ll receive from claiming and how you can set up your business operations to maximize the benefit. About Leyton: This webinar will be presented by Leyton, a global R&D Tax Credit consulting firm. Their team of highly experienced scientists, engineers, tax consultants and tax attorneys implement strategies to claim the R&D Tax Credit, ensuring maximum eligible financial return without impacting a company’s core business. With offices in 11 countries currently, Leyton was a U.S. startup just 2.5 years ago. In addition to learning about the R&D Tax Credit, you’ll also hear from Leyton’s Senior Vice Presidents about initial challenges they faced during their efforts to get the U.S. office off the ground in Boston.
