R&D Tax Credits for Consumer Goods Manufacturing

The consumer goods industry, encompassing everything from- electronics and clothing to furniture and sporting equipment, is a prime candidate for claiming R&D tax credits. This program, established in 1981, encourages innovation within US manufacturing, and consumer goods manufacturers form a significant portion of its beneficiaries.

But what qualifies as R&D in this industry? It's not just about salaries; the credit extends to:

  • Developing new products and improving existing ones
  • Experimenting with new materials and processes
  • Designing and building prototypes
  • Testing and validating product performance

These activities, crucial for everyday innovation within consumer goods companies, translate to significant tax savings through R&D tax credits. By claiming these credits, manufacturing companies can reinvest in further innovation, enhance competitiveness, and ultimately drive growth.
