Business Structure
Choosing the best business structure is critical when developing the overall tax plan for your company. The correct business structure affects operating efficiency, how you report income, personal liability, and can allow you to eliminate a layer of taxation. To determine the optimal business structure, it is critical to understand how your unique business can be integrated with the different structures options.
R&D Tax Credits & Incentives
If your company has spent time and other resources developing new or improved existing products and business processes, you may qualify for the research and development (R&D) tax credit. Only a fraction of U.S. companies qualifying for the R&D tax credit claim it. SD Mayer’s R&D Tax Credit team can help your company identify qualified research activity, quantify associated costs, properly document research expenses and calculate the credit.
Stock Option Planning

Stock options, shares, bonuses, and other benefits are significant aspects of your compensation plan outside of base salary structures. Individuals who neglect the complexity of these instruments risk a failure to optimize their values.

We are here to make sure that does not happen. The tax consultant experts at SD Mayer understand the intricacies of all varieties of stock options, ensuring you remain in compliance and are properly compensated. We take pride in our ability to remove the ambiguity from tricky compensation plans, and support your financial objectives.
