Ask an Expert: How to Monetize the R&D Tax Credit


Life science companies generate a significant portion of the annual R&D tax credits claimed every year. Yet, the majority of startups and small-to-midsize businesses do not take advantage of federal, state, and local tax credits.

ADP Tax Credit experts will hold 20 minute virtual appointments to answer your questions on the federal tax credit and help determine the likelihood of your company qualifying for the tax credit.

What to expect in the overview & 20-minute Zoom session:

  • Federal R&D credit overview and ways to monetize the credit
  • Eligible costs and requirements to qualify
  • Examples of qualifying activities in the Biotech industry
  • State R&D credits
  • R&D project lifecycle
