Run data through A.I. and rules-based classifiers to determine Qualified R&D time for each employee.
Create contemporaneous Qualified Research Activity (QRA) documentation to protect the credit in the event of an audit.
Get your clients the tax credits they've earned through R&D and watch them grow. To the moon!
Use AI to eliminate the tedious manual parts of a traditional R&D study. Focus your time on the biggest value adds for your clients. Be confident the tax credits you help clients claim will stand up to a rigorous IRS audit.
RetroacDev is for clients in any industry. It can get its data from project management tools (all industries), Git (software development), and surveys (all industries, including companies that don't have any other data).
For R&D employees who are not engineers, such as C-Suite execs and Product Managers, we're able to use data from popular project management software like Jira, Pivotal Tracker, Rally, and more to document their involvement in R&D.
The data and information your clients share with you cannot be used to reverse engineer their product(s) or process(es). For software engineering (Git or other version control data), clients do not share their actual code or IP. They only share metadata about changes made to the codebase during the development process. Additionally, regardless of industry, your clients have total control over and visibility into which metadata they share.
We are not licensed to defend you before the IRS, but if your client is audited we will make ourselves entirely available for audit support. Our data-driven methodology and documentation are the value we bring to our accountant partners.
The first R&D Studies we powered were in 2018, so no clients have been audited yet. However, the accountants that use RetroacDev are confident the reports and contemporaneous documentation we produce will stand up against an IRS audit.
