Increased Demand for Health and Fitness Products Opens the Door for Companies to Receive Tax Credits

The health and fitness industry has experienced a massive spike in popularity over the last couple of years. There has been an across-the-board increase in gym memberships, at-home workout equipment and organic food consumption as more people are becoming more aware of the value of health and fitness. The need for better products and services is increasing, leading health and fitness companies to invest in more product research and development, a key factor in qualifying for lucrative R&D tax credits which our team at National Tax Group has helped multiple companies receive.  
“More companies than ever before are able to benefit from the R&D tax credit for the activities they’re performing,” said Lee Ferry, President of National Tax Group. “However, less than 1/3 of companies utilize this credit, and it’s our job to make sure people are taking advantage of the credits they are eligible to receive.”
There are multiple types of businesses, products and services within the health and fitness industry that would benefit from these tax credits. Some of these examples include:
The tax credits that companies receive can help offset the costs that it took them to develop all the products or services they produce. They are dollar-for-dollar credits that are used to cover the cost of hiring staff, materials used, third-party contractors or freelancers hired. For most businesses, hiring a team of tax professionals to help can ensure these credits are being claimed properly as well as save time, money and additional resources.
