Strategic Growth Planning Overview

To attract and retain growing businesses, state and local governments often provide valuable economic incentives including tax abatements, payroll tax credits, infrastructure grants, low- or no-interest loans, training grants, tax increment financing, and more.

When your clients are considering relocating, expanding, making capital investments, or adding new jobs, McGuire Sponsel can help businesses take advantage of these economic incentives and guide them through our strategic growth planning process.

Case Study

General Atomics

General Atomics planned on investing over $60 million in their current Lee County, Mississippi location. The company looked to McGuire Sponsel to procure incentives for the growth project. McGuire Sponsel worked with Lee County to negotiate a fee in lieu of taxes (FILOT). With the help of McGuire Sponsel’s credits and incentives team, General Atomics will save around $6.8 million in tax payments over the first 10 years of the FILOT agreement.


Can Incentives Benefit My Client's Business?

The truth about credits and incentives for small and medium sized businesses: Most businesses don’t think they are eligible for or qualify for incentives because they aren’t the Amazons, FedExs, Apples or Googles of the world. However, many businesses make qualifying activities every year and never receive benefit. In this webinar, we explore what makes incentives accessible to small and medium sized businesses and the potential pitfalls to navigate around.
