Web Development Companies
Website developers can qualify for R&D when they are performing research used for implementing a new system or process. Finding innovative solutions and technologies to improve the processes and value of a website often uses qualifying research activities that are able to reap the benefits of R&D credits.
Qualifying processes include
- Making websites mobile friendly
- Moving services online
- Rewriting a CMS
- Backend technology
- Programming software source code
- Coding and application development
- Merging and integration of legacy systems with new platforms or releases
If a website developer is only taking steps to improve the face, and user interface of the site, it will likely not qualify for R&D tax credits.
