Furniture and manufacturing companies may be eligible for R&D tax credits for performing qualified research activities. For example, the following activities may be eligible for R&D tax credits:

  • Performing technical research on new and/or improved requirements and specifications (stackability, weight, durability, environmental effects, rigidity or texture, flexibility, shrinkage, longevity)

  • Performing technical research on new and/or improved damage resistance design specifications (scratching, rust, corrosion, bacteria, temperature, water damage

  • Performing technical research on new and/or improved alternative materials (e.g. aluminum, magnesium, steel, wood, plastics, granite, glass)

  • Developing new and/or improved prototypes, samples, or assembly components

  • Developing products or processes to meet applicable regulatory requirements (e.g. safety enhancements, emissions laws and regulations)

  • Designing new and/or improved manufacturing processes through automation (increased yields, reducing manufacturing times)

  • Designing new and/or improved coating materials and systems (e.g. frame strength, fabric finish) to enhance structural integrity

  • Designing new and/or improved fabrication processes (e.g. reducing costs)

  • Designing new and/or improved manufacturing or operational processes (cost-effective and innovative operational processes

  • Designing, constructing, and testing product prototypes for specific applications (e.g. residential, office, commercial settings)

  • Integrating new materials to improve product performance and manufacturing processes

  • Integrating new and/or improved production standards, machinery, or quality assurance processes

  • Evaluating new and/or improved tooling requirements and equipment integration optimization

  • Evaluating and determining the new and/or improved flow of material processing for production

  • Testing new and/or improved metalworking protocols (e.g. casting, forging, welding, grinding)
