Client Testimonial


The group assigned to working on R&D credit made my job as Controller easier. I did have to dig up reports such as prior returns and W-2 statements, etc. However, Leyton worked with a hand full of employees at the company directly and explained what they needed and determined what was worthy of the credit. A very professional report was completed at the end and what I like most is if we are audited Leyton has documented numbers properly.

Patricia Hersey – Controller New Castle Systems


HSI engaged Leyton in early 2019 to build a case and establish eligible R&D tax credits, both historically and for the current year. To date, Leyton have proven to be very knowledgeable in all technical areas of the tax laws and have been approachable and responsive whenever called upon. The end document to support the historical claims is comprehensive. We will continue to use Leyton in future years.
