Although the research credit is often thought of in connection with companies in the high-tech, pharmaceutical, and biotechnology industries, it is certainly not limited to those industries. Companies in a wide array of other industries can reap substantial financial benefits from the research credit when they invest in research to make lighter, stronger, cheaper, or more reliable products; design more economical and versatile internal processes; or develop new customer-interfacing or internal software programs.

Other industries benefiting from the research credit notably include:

  • Manufacturing
  • Automotive
  • Aerospace
  • Engineering
  • Software
  • Textiles
  • Construction
  • Food

Speaker, CLE/CPE credit information, and additional details will follow.
