How does Audit Defense work?

AuditShield from Boast

Almost all taxpayers are subject to tax obligations. As well, the business operations of most companies are examined by tax authorities. Because of this, it is crucial for business owners to employ some form of tax audit protection in order to shield themselves from costly fees, penalties, and other financial and operational ramifications that can come as a result of an official audit.

With our mission to help companies accelerate innovation and business growth by maximizing R&D tax credits, Boast has developed the ideal solution to the risk and probability of tax audits.

We provide expert guidance and regular check-ins from in-house tax professionals to ensure your audit documents are complete and accurate all year round and help you avoid rushing to meet tax deadlines. Our software consolidates data from your technical and financial systems into comprehensive and detailed audit documents passively throughout the year, while our in-house experts compile a defensible claim that will stand up under any IRS or CRA scrutiny.

What does AuditShield cover?

Audits are usually conducted when auditors spot gaps or inconsistencies in your claim. They also often entail high costs due to potential penalties for proven errors or discrepancies as well as professional fees incurred for the service itself.

The Boast process is designed to cover your business during an R&D Tax Credit claim, which is a government-sponsored incentive for companies that invest in projects or programs meant to improve a product or business process’ performance, functionality, accuracy, or quality. For instance: the development of new manufacturing processes, the construction of new software and equipment, or the employment of designers and engineers dedicated to your R&D project.
