10 Questions: Increase cash flow with the R&D Tax Credit
In the July 24, 2019 installment of the CohnReznick National Tax Webinar Series, members of our National Tax Practice reviewed ways to increase cash flow with the Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit. During this webinar, they reminded our attendees that American businesses that design and develop new or improved products and processes can earn substantial tax savings through the R&D Tax Credit. In addition, our team reviewed:
- Ways to increase cash flow and immediately reduce current year regular tax liability, AMT, or FICA
- Using the credit to gain significant savings through a multiyear analysis
- How to gain permanent tax savings and a reduction of your overall effective tax rate
- How the R&D Tax Credit can be claimed in addition to any tax deduction taken for R&D expenses
- Other enhancements made to the R&D Tax Credit that you may not be aware of

Prepare your purchasing and estimating systems for potential point-earning opportunitiesThe General Services Administration (GSA) is in the process of developing a draft RFP for ASTRO, which will support a wide variety of manned, unmanned, and optionally manned system-related programs primarily within the Department of Defense. The GSA division writing the ASTRO RFP is the same division that recently took over administration of the OASIS program and the new on-ramps that permitted earning points for having approved purchasing and estimating systems. It could be likely that ASTRO will follow suit.
