Economic Development Incentives


Frequently companies fail to fully benefit from credits and incentives they have negotiated and secured.  Incentives programs commonly require on-going compliance maintenance over multiple years. Companies often do not have the time, in-house expertise, or resources needed to administer, report, comply with, and claim business incentives. DAI offers an incentive compliance service to assist companies who have secured economic development incentives by ensuring they fully benefit from their incentives package.
