Companies in the food and beverage industry are constantly evolving to meet the demands of their clientele and keep up with the competition of others in their industry. Businesses investing in research and development for new recipes, packaging, formulas or processes can be rewarded with lucrative tax credits that can bring in a direct source of cash flow. If a company has been involved in any activities that enhance products and processes, National Tax Group can help them obtain these R&D tax credits that are dollar-for-dollar reductions in their tax liability. 

"Companies within the food and beverage industry are constantly performing activities to keep up with their competition and the industry's evolving health and safety standards," said Lee Ferry, President of National Tax Group. "Many companies are able to reward themselves with R&D credits for the steps they are already taking, and our in-house experts have the knowledge to help you receive these rewards."

Some of the qualifying activities that food and beverage companies and manufacturers perform include: 

  • Improving the shelf life, taste, or nutrition of food or drink products
  • Updating processes to comply with new legal and regulatory changes
  • Modernizing lab equipment to improve the safe handling of food products
  • Executing more energy-efficient processes that save water, fuel, and utilities
  • Packaging food or drinks in more sustainable ways
  • Developing mobile applications that provide easy communication between businesses and their clientele
  • Developing new technologies such as new software implementations, technology consultations with a firm or professional, and automation of various processes 

The research and development tax credit has a broad definition and provides many opportunities for food producers, packers, and processors to receive a generous tax credit. If a company thinks their business qualifies for R&D tax credits, they can contact National Tax Group's tax professionals today.
