Baker Tilly helps expanding company take advantage of government incentives

Our client’s need

A software development company was in need of government incentives to expand their business and contribute to the local economy through new employment. Not having completed this type of expansion in the past, the company enlisted Baker Tilly’s help to negotiate the incentives.

Baker Tilly solution

Utilizing their experience with state and local governments and their past experience in similar projects, Baker Tilly’s tax credits and incentives team members worked with the client to better understand their goals and financing requirements. With this knowledge and background, the team was able to work with state and local authorities to address the client’s goals.


Our team helped the client secure local real and personal property tax abatements, training grants, and the Michigan MEGA credit by persuading state and local authorities that a new company headquarters would create local jobs and capital investment. The company received total awards of approximately $5.7 million and created 75 new jobs in the first year the new company was headquartered in Michigan. Up to 125 new jobs were expected after six years.
