Course Description

Are you missing out on significant cash flow that can help your client's business grow multifold? Your tax clients expect you to provide guidance and advice that lead them to where growth opportunities lie — increasing their ability to make profitable business decisions. Many CPAs focus on performing tax accounting only as protocol demands and overlook longstanding tax incentives such as the Research & Development (R&D)Tax Credit as a way to put cash flow back into the business and minimize the tax burden.

The R&D tax credit is one of the most powerful incentives in the tax code. Due to the broad definition of “qualified research”, businesses in nearly every industry take advantage of the credit. The R&D tax credit is based on “qualified research expenses” (QREs) – for every dollar spent on QREs, you can earn up to 8.0% in federal tax credits! Additionally, over 40 states offer similar R&D tax incentives that can double benefits in some cases.

As a game-changing tax credit, the R&D tax credit provides both federal and in most cases, state tax credits for efforts centered around developing new and improved products, processes, techniques, software, formulas, or inventions. The new permanent research tax credit provides new opportunities for small businesses to reduce or eliminate Alternate Minimum Tax (AMT). 

This free online CPE webinar covers the following key topics:

  • The explanation of Qualified Research Expenses
  • How to claim this R&D tax credit?
  • Myths associated with the R&D tax credit

If you are in Industry this webinar will help you in identifying opportunities to save tax for your company. If you are in public practice this webinar will help you in advising clients in tax saving through R & D Credits.

I have not had to deal with this issue and don't expect to but I appreciate that I at least have some knowledge in case I do come across it in the future.


Great presentation - right on the subject I needed it to be. Lots of information in the one-hour time slot. I really learned more than I expected to about what to consider in taking the R&D tax credit.


The class was good and I learned a lot, however, at this point I don't have any clients that would benefit. It is good information to know as a preparer..


The presentation was very well organized and the presenter was very knowledgeable. The slides were probably one of the best illustrated from conferences and webinars I have attended: succinct and eye-catching graphics. Well done


For me, the entire webinar was a great help. I had the opportunity to get knowledge about the credits for companies of research (R & D) I was able to know form 6765 and Form 8974 and who can applicable for this credit.


The speaker was so easy to follow and really made the R&D credit understandable. Excellent webinar.
