Communications provider realizes tax savings

A large US communications provider and leader in the development of new technologies and services within its industry was looking for cost-saving opportunities. They turned to PwC based on our experience of successfully working with them on tax and other consultative areas. After an initial assessment, PwC tax professionals believed the organization was positioned to claim federal and state research and development tax credits. The team then identified, quantified, and documented the client's research activities to compute its tax credit. PwC's work helped the client save in both federal and state taxes.
