Chemical manufacturers engage in a wide array of activities that can qualify for the R&D tax credit. This extends from product development and formulation to the intricate design and creation of large-scale production plants. Companies that focus on developing a few chemical products often allocate significant resources to product development, safety validation, and regulatory approval. On the other hand, larger enterprises may incur substantial expenses in designing and building plants for mass production. The use and development of pilot plants for testing and scaling up the production process can also qualify for the credit. Moreover, activities related to the safety, stability, and packaging of chemical products often involve extensive R&D efforts and thus may qualify for the tax credit. Eligible sub-industries within this sector include consumer chemicals, industrial chemicals, cosmetics, textiles, and many more.
