R&D is complex

Companies spend significant time and effort collecting data and aggregating the necessary documentation to support federal and state (R&D) tax credits. And since every company is unique, there is no one size fits all approach that’s right for everyone, or even every team within an organization.

It’s hard to build technology that works for everyone, and thus many R&D service providers offer a more narrow approach. This can result in understating and/or under-documenting credits, losing some or all of them on examination.

“RCS is revolutionizing the way we serve our clients.”

“Now more than ever we must help our clients through uncertain and difficult times with innovation, improved collaboration, and efficiency.”
