I approached 3 different R&D tax consulting firms for quotes and not only was Swanson Reed the most responsive, they were the best priced and performed the most services in the quickest amount of time. I was skeptical at first but just got my final pack and am stoked it was all true. Would give 6 stars if could.
I have been using Swanson Reed for my clients for more than a decade. Having a specialist firm that can provide practical and commercial advice that produces real outcomes is very important and we have received great feedback from our clients.
