Why did you choose Clarus R+D?
Our CEO asked me to use Clarus.
Clarus R+D was outstanding
every step of the way.
How have you used your R&D tax credit?
The credit almost covered the cost of my salary for an entire year!
What was your experience with the Clarus R+D team?
Outstanding every step of the way. We had interactions with both tax experts and the software.
What advice would you give others looking to benefit from the R&D tax credit?
Listen to Clarus R+D’s advice. Much of our development team is international and was unavailable for inclusion in the credit. But Clarus was still able to guide us to a substantial credit.
