The federal government has firmly established that commercial Research & Development (R&D) is to be incentivized as the primary driver of technological innovation. Because of this, the federal government supports business R&D through a tax credit for incremental increases in R&Dspending.
The IRS has taken an aggressive position that requires companies to provide significant engineering and cost nexus support to obtain R&D Tax Section 41 Credit and Section 174 Deduction benefits.
Section 174 and 41 Research and Experimentation(R&E) Tax regulations provide companies of all sizes and from most industries the ability to receive economic incentives for innovation. If you’re a company that invests in attempting to design, develop, or improve products, processes, techniques, formulas, inventions, or software; you may be eligible for this benefit.
One of the primary challenges facing tax departments is having the engineering technical expertise to adequately justify and defend tax claims. Because we have the engineering and technical knowledge and the tax expertise, we understand how to talk and maneuver within organizations to maximize internal cooperation and understanding.

IRS regulations often provide indirect opportunities to taxpayers and/or require specialized analyses to support various taxpayer positions. In these circumstances, Companies often need to develop one-off, defendable models to support their tax claims.
BCP has developed several analytical models to support various tax positions. Two such models are the warranty Cost Modeland a Fair Market Value (FMV)Model for historical warehouse inventory.
BCP is developing a data-driven risk and statistical-based model to develop the cost of warranty estimates associated with routine and non-routine capital equipment purchases. The model applies the principles of Probability Risk Analysis (PRA).
Fair Market Value (FMV) Model
BCP developed a unique methodology to evaluate and determine the historical FMV for warehouse inventory. The approach developed was based on asset components and included an assessment of the marketplace during that time period for available and willing purchasers
