quick note - for many of our small / medium businesses they don't know to give their accountants the costs associated (can be somewhat estimated) for their time and expenses (these should have receipts) for process changes (ie new layouts, process training, etc) for that R&D tax credit. if you don't tell the accountants they are not necessarily asking these companies for the data. Not bad accounting service, they just rely on clients knowing the details in their business
Christine Shimizu
I just made a note to reach out to my accountant. Thank you Kathy
