Industries we work with
Historically, many companies fail to make an RTC claim because they falsely assume that the program is restricted to “High Tech” companies. The fact is that virtually any company may have qualified research activities (QRAs) at any given time. In general, if some of your staff are engaged in solving technological problems for which a solution is not readily apparent, there is a good chance that the work they are doing is fully or partially eligible. Here are some of the industries we have supported in successful R&D Tax Credit claims.
Casting & Foundries
Food Science Technology & Processing
Automation & Robotics
Biotechnology & Medical Device
”That’s the difference between you and other providers - anyone can put together the numbers, but your team backs it up with science and engineering facts.
”We bid our RTC out to 4 large firms and DST was by far the best proposal. They showed better value and a better industry and business insight, spent the most amount of time with us to review our documents and have technical scope outs, and had the most thorough description of the opportunity. DST was the only firm to walk us through the steps and stages and had a clear timeline and milestone. It was a clear choice for us.
”We’ve worked with a lot of consultants over the years, but the level of professionalism and knowledge we got from the DST team was insurmountable. Their Tax Engineers worked with our operations and engineering teams to uncover qualified activities, and document them. Their Tax team walked us through the calculation and made sure that we had a good understanding of the numbers and trends. This level of full transparency is refreshing.
”DST did a tremendous job with our claim. The level of technical skills and overall organizational skills for our large company was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. They are among the best consultants I’ve worked with in my 25 year career.
”They check in with me quarterly to give updates. Our Engineers and technical staff really enjoyed working with them - what a change!
”We’ve used other providers and found that our report was a copy and paste from prior years. With DST Advisory Group, I was pleasantly surprised to see them take a fresh look at the claim every year.
”I used to have to manage the R&D process with our previous provider - it felt like I was doing most of the work! With DST they took that work off my plate and allowed me to follow the progress of the claim without having one more project to manage.
