Among the many incentives the federal government provides to U.S. businesses, the research and development (“R&D”) tax credit remains largely overlooked and underutilized, meaning companies may be missing out on claiming up to thousands of dollars of credits! And probably for good reason. The phrases “research and development” and “R&D” usually bring images of lab coats and microscopes to mind. However, the federal R&D tax credit laws define “research and development” so that it can take on a much broader meaning. In fact, you may now be able to recover a significant return on your investments that involve the improvement or development of manufacturing processes, software, products, techniques, and formulas. Unfortunately, many of these credits go unclaimed because companies are unaware they may now qualify for the credit, regardless of profitability, size, or industry – even though the Protecting Americans from Tax Hikes (“PATH”) Act of 2015 enables more companies to benefit in more ways than ever from this tax credit. The PATH Act expanded the applicability of the...

Workforce Quotes ADP Expert About ACA Compliance

Workforce has posted an article titled “Despite Repeal Efforts, ACA Compliance Moves Forward” that extensively quotes ADP SME Ellen Feeney, vice president, Counsel, Global Compliance, on the need for compliance with the current provisions of the Affordable Care Act while the incoming administration evaluates its next steps regarding the law. “Given the Republican sweep in the White House, Senate and House of Representatives, the new makeup of our government represents a potentially significant change not just for ACA, but for tax policy, Fair Labor Standards Act, pay equity and more,” [Feeney] said in an email. “First and foremost, it’s important to focus on facts vs. speculation. Change won’t happen overnight. The Affordable Care Act is the law, and will remain so until it’s not. Ten million people are getting subsidies through the marketplaces and 20 million total are insured through the public marketplaces. A wholesale replacement of the Affordable Care Act would require congressional action and would take time.” Read the entire article at Workforce. Share this:Click to email...
