Credits and Incentives

An extra return on your investments

RSM's credits and incentives team provides a broad range of services to help clients identify and secure credits and incentives across the full spectrum of federal, state and local programs. We can help you evaluate each of the areas that trigger opportunity:

  • People – including hiring, retaining and training incentives
  • Investments – including research and development tax credits, state investment credits, renewable energy incentives and certain real estate investment incentives
  • Operations – including a variety of energy and sustainability programs, manufacturing and production incentives, and excise tax exemptions and credits

In addition to the many statutory programs that exist, there are often opportunities to negotiate incentive packages that may combine statutory, discretionary and custom incentives. We help our clients build credits and incentives investigation into their strategic process because these opportunities are often lost if you don't pursue them before you begin your activities.
