In the US, our specific expertise is in Federal and State Research and Development (R&D) Tax Credits. Leyton uses a dual-approach methodology where both tax professionals and technical specialists with advanced degrees in the hard sciences apply the rules in a holistic fashion to deliver customized solutions for each client.

We work in partnership with each client’s outside tax advisors to support their work in the preparation and filing of returns. Our role is to maximize the client’s tax credit benefit and provide our clients with a solid foundation of technical analysis and supporting documentation. We do this in a non-invasive manner without disrupting our clients’ day-to-day business. Our process ensures that all potentially eligible projects undergo a rigorous scientific and technical assessment, that financial calculations are in full compliance with a jurisdiction’s tax legislation, and that claims are fully substantiated.

As a business, we want to help unleash our clients potential and be a strategic partner in their evolution and growth. We help find openings in processes and ways of working that others can’t see, then unlock these opportunities to create value efficiency.
