REV by Leyton Accelerates R&D and ERC Tax Credits for Startups and SMBs

Built on 20 years of experience, innovative digital platform allows businesses to maximize tax credits quickly, seamlessly and accurately

BOSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Global consultancy, Leyton, today launches its new innovative digital platform, REV by Leyton. Designed specifically to help startups and small businesses capture lucrative and underused tax breaks, initially targeting Research and Development (R&D) and Employee Retention Credits (ERC), the digitalized platform combines efficient and effective technology with over 20 years of global experience in tax and business consulting. With REV, businesses save weeks of tax preparation work and reap more returns, further powering innovation, profits, and growth across all industries.

Annually, billions of dollars allocated to R&D-related tax credits are left unclaimed, and the many businesses who received the nearly $700 million of payments through the Paycheck Protection Program are leaving eligible funds through Employee Retention Credits on the table. For the R&D Payroll Credit, the maximum benefit eligible companies may receive is $250,000. For ERC, employers can claim up to $5,000 per employee for all of 2020 and up to $7,000 per employee per eligible quarter in 2021, equating to a maximum of $26,000 per employee.

“The IRS instituted tighter controls, new legislation and more paperwork to substantiate R&D and ERC tax claims, making it increasingly difficult for startups and SMBs to take advantage of the program,” said Tom McDanell, Senior Vice President of REV. “By leveraging our new digital technology and our experts on tax law in any number of fields, such as robotics, law, hospitality, and healthcare, REV helps businesses at pivotal points in their development remain competitive and achieve their goals. Our mission is to maximize claims with a seamless, quick process, the unsurpassed expertise of in-house industry professionals, and a concrete audit defense.”

The R&D Payroll Tax Credit is a federal benefit providing businesses with cash savings for all activities relating to product development and improvement. The ERC supports qualifying businesses who retained employees while experiencing significant pandemic-related declines in gross receipts.

With REV, startups and SMBs have access to:

Summary Dashboard: One convenient location to manage your account, access claim information, and pick up where you left off as needed, enabling customers to complete their claim as time allows.

Document Center: A secure place to share relevant payroll, accounting, and project documentation to eliminate guesswork and ensure accuracy.

Messaging Center: A portal to easily communicate about claims directly with Leyton tax experts. Leyton consultants specifically trained in a customer’s field are at the ready to ensure an easy and accurate claiming process.

Seamless Integrations: An opportunity to connect users with other payroll, HR, and project management applications to directly pull data, further reducing time and effort spent. 

“The prospect of navigating tax credits on our own was daunting, and the assistance and expertise Leyton offered as we navigated the process of identifying whether we qualified for the R&D payroll tax credit was invaluable,” said Sandeep Nair, President and CEO of Metquay. “The workflow process within the beta of REV by Leyton combined with the ability to communicate directly with Leyton’s tax consultants was a game-changer. They ensured we missed nothing and had all the necessary evidence secured before submitting to the IRS for consideration. What would have before been an enormous project of determining eligibility, Leyton helped us resolve in a day.”

Leyton’s tax experts promise to produce the highest quality documentation and credit claim reports for all clients. With scrupulous detail to ensure all legal requirements for a credit are sound, businesses rest easy knowing the claim will be processed efficiently and timely.
