By keeping clients abreast of new developments and industry trends, Anchin’s experts provide the practical solutions companies need to keep growing in a highly competitive market. The Technology Industry Group helps companies throughout their lifecycle obtain access to capital and financing, consider the most effective tax and equity structure of the company, and provide due diligence for merger and acquisition opportunities.  Our experts assist companies in developing key employee retention strategies, perform valuation analysis, and help management understand and execute complex revenue recognition practices.  In addition, Anchin also provides clients a seamless approach in generating and utilizing tax credits and incentives, including research and development tax credits, and other state and local incentives.

The United States has the most advanced software and information technology industry in the world. The U.S. software and IT industry has increased its revenue to more than $600 billion in recent years, representing 25% of the global marketplace. Products and services from the technology space have efficiently transformed the way most organizations communicate, coordinate, and operate. There are more than 100,000 technology services companies in the U.S., a staggering 99% of which have fewer than 500 employees. On the other side of the spectrum, a list of the world’s largest software development firms by revenue is dominated by U.S. companies which hold eight of the top ten spots.

Due to the rapid adoption and expansion of internet technologies over the past decade, the software and technology industry has undergone significant structural change, most notably a shift from commercial product release toward customized software related services. The most evident example of this is the evolution of cloud computing, mobile or wireless technologies and the “Internet of Things”. Research and Development (R&D) tax credits are available to all technology businesses that produce or develop new or improved products, processes, principles or methodologies.

Anchin’s professionals understand the important role the technology industry plays in keeping the U.S. competitive in an increasingly global economy. Our industry experience, attention to detail and expert judgment result in accurate, highly defendable tax credit calculations. Our dedicated team includes audit, tax and advisory professionals with years of experience identifying issues and solving problems for technology industry companies in the following areas:

  • Application software publishers
  • System software publishers
  • Custom computer programming services
  • Middleware, tools and integration software/services
  • Information, communication and cyber security services
  • Cloud computing, wireless and mobile platforms development

Our technology industry R&D team ensures that our clients benefit from all of the incentives available to them. Anchin helps clients assess their R&D tax credits at all phases of their business, from the time they first consider a new product, service or functionality (white space evaluation) and throughout the entire product development lifecycle. We are particularly skilled and experienced at identifying qualifying projects and initiatives in each area of your business and are experts at examining and capturing all allowable expenses towards your company’s research credit.
