R&D CREDIT STUDIES

The Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit is one of the best tax planning opportunities available to businesses of all sizes. Companies within a wide range of industries qualify for significant federal and state tax savings, thus reducing their tax liability simply by performing their daily jobs. By paying less in federal and state income and payroll taxes, the R&D Tax Credit allows companies to increase their cash flow, which in turn gives them the ability to hire new employees, invest in new products and service offerings and grow their businesses.
  • Assessment of activities and expenses that qualify for R&D Tax Credits
  • Preparation of R&D Tax Credit Study and Report
  • R&D Tax Credit Audit Support – Federal and State

SUCCESSION PLANNING

Ensuring that your business operates well in your, or a key executive’s, absence takes careful planning. Through succession planning strategies, you can be confident that your business is covered in the event a critical player on your management team leaves.

PREPARATION OF PCAOB/SEC COMPLIANT FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

PKF Texas is a PCAOB-registered firm in good standing, with a strong track record of properly handling highly technical matters in financial accounting and reporting.

DATA ANALYTICS

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) estimates that organizations lose 5% of revenue to fraud each year with an average loss of $1.5 million and a median loss of $125,000*. A proactive monitoring program can account for a 33%* reduction in the median loss and median duration of fraud at your Company. When you quantify the costs of fraud, the fees for a data program (the software costs, professional fees, and/or opportunity costs for in-house staff time) are very reasonable and affordable even for small- and medium-sized businesses.

Plus, a proactive data monitoring program will usually lead to additional operational insights that can help your organization achieve its goals.
