March 22 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


As a startup, you’re committed to developing new ideas and projects. You pour time and energy into your product, looking for new services to deliver to the world. You’re doing R&D, even though you’re not wearing that stereotypical white lab coat. AND, did you know that even if you don’t have revenue yet, the Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit could save you thousands of dollars? Better yet, did you know that adding jobs each year could save you even more money. Join Aprio’s Carli McDonald, partner-in-charge of R&D Tax Credit Services, as she explores the world of R&D and Jobs Tax Credits and how those credits could save your business money every year.
