Strategies to Maximize the R&D and Employee Retention Credits
The CARES Act, Consolidated Appropriations Act, and American Rescue Plan have created and expanded numerous programs to assist businesses with navigating through the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the more prevalent programs from these laws is the Employee Retention Credit (ERC). As companies continue to pursue these programs, it is important to understand the impacts that utilizing these programs may have on other incentives, including the R&D Credit. During this session, we will discuss:
– What constitutes qualified research activities
– The types of qualified research expenses
– The interplay between the R&D, ERC, and other wage-driven incentives for tax years 2020 and 2021
