Frequently Asked Questions

What method of accounting should be used with my manufacturing company?

In most manufacturing companies, the accrual method of accounting provides the best form of analysis to drive the company forward. However, with start-ups and small companies, the cash basis is an acceptable method until the business grows to stable business.

What deductions and credits are available for my manufacturing company?

There are several manufacturing-related benefits available like Research & Development tax credits, Domestic Producers Activity Deduction (DPAD), Empowerment Zone credits, Investment & New Job credits, Sales Tax savings, Work Opportunity Tax Credit (WOTC), Energy credits and more.
