In the rapidly evolving world of manufacturing electronic products, Research and Development (R&D) is often the backbone that gives companies a competitive edge. For products like emergency response systems, communication systems, or digital hubs, innovation is critical. While R&D is a vital component in maintaining industry leadership, identifying qualifying activities for R&D tax credits remains a challenge for many companies.
