R&D Tax Credits – Your Business Product or Process May Qualify

Posted by:

We are currently helping a dental services company obtain R&D Tax Credits for a software they developed. Our client developed this software initially for their use, but it works so well that they decided to market it to competitors. Your product, process, or software may qualify for R&D tax credits as well.

Although billions of dollars in research tax credits are generated each year, the credit still retains elements of complexity and misunderstanding. Companies often view the efforts of developing new ...

Financing Commercial Real Estate; SBA May Be the Way

Posted by:

In the recent Great Recession, many in the industry joked about financing commercial real estate, “If it’s not SBA, there ain’t no way”.

Micro Strength; The Hope for Commercial Real Estate

Posted by:

One factor helping to drive commercial building starts is the aging of America. As the Baby Boomer generation pushes the age demographic ever upward, more senior housing and nursing care facilities are needed. The result is an increase in construction starts for these two areas over last year, according to the Seniors Housing Construction Trends Report 2011.

Let’s Talk about Time

Posted by:

Time Management, that is.  Wait, I know it’s boring, but hang with me.  Improvement here pays huge dividends.

Why Use a Tenant Broker to Lease Commercial Property? (Part 1)

Tenant brokers (representatives) almost always get paid by the Landlord and are effectively a free leasing specialist for the tenant.  Yet many small businesses go bare and DIY when negotiating one of the largest and longest term overhead expenses for their business.

Almost all commercial leases in larger metropolitan cities like Dallas have a tenant side representative.  As you move out to the suburbs and smaller towns, most leases have a landlord broker only.
