The Secrets to Small Firm Success: How to Lead Your Firm Forward in this New Era

April 3 - May 15, 2023 | Online Course

Like most large-scale systemic events, March 2020 gave ‘official birth’ to a new era of work and life – one with new rules, new ways of thinking, and lots of big change. The changes we continue to see and experience in the workplace, marketplace, and recruiting space are both fundamental and generational. Our biggest opportunities for new and continued growth and success are dependent on our ability to understand, navigate, and leverage this change.

Although this is true for all firms, the opportunity is especially great for smaller firms. Time is of the essence, however, if you’d like to take advantage of the differences only you as a small firm can offer.

Learn the steps, strategies, skills, and mindset needed to understand and leverage the fact that 'bigger isn't always better', better is better.

Roundtable Discussion on Section 174 R&D Amortization

Recording | Available On-Demand

As part of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017, Congress changes how taxpayers write off R&D expenses. Starting on January 1, 2022, firms could no longer write off R&D expenses in the year they were incurred and now must amortize those expenses over five years in most cases.

There has been much confusion on how these provisions interact with the R&D Tax Credit. The Amortization and Credit provisions are governed by different sections of the Internal Revenue Code and as such, even those firms that have not taken advantage of the R&D Tax Credit will be subject to these rules. In fact, use of the R&D Tax Credit is a recommended strategy to partially mitigate the impact of the Amortization rules.

Hear from Katharine Mottley, ACEC VP of Tax and Workforce Policy, and Thomas Moul, CPA, Stambaugh Ness, about the issue, ACEC's efforts to repeal the policy, and what you can do to urge Congress to take action.
