Business Incentives

Our goal is singular. Reduce your total real estate cost with the shortest, clearest path to financial success by implementing strategies for the development, expansion, consolidation or relocation of facilities.

Location Decisions are Valuable

Your firm’s presence in a particular location has tremendous financial implications not only for your company but also for the local municipality and state. We create competition for that residency, unearthing financial opportunities through the procurement of local and state economic incentives. We identify, evaluate, and negotiate incentives such as cash grants, infrastructure improvements, tax reductions, and job training. We evaluate local labor and area amenities to ensure that your business can be properly scaled. Our experience lives within all industries and sectors, with clients ranging in size from Global 2000 firms to individual owners, occupiers and developers.

How We Can Help

  • Develop a comprehensive strategy based on each client’s individual tax and business assessment
  • Expertly engage local and state officials through our time-tested relationships
  • Create competition for your residency
  • File necessary reports and applications
  • Effectively compare multiple incentive offers against a wide range of quantitative and qualitative factors
  • Track real-time financial incentives awarded nationally for comparison
  • Negotiate to ensure all possible benefits are secured
  • Monitor terms for compliance
  • Provide a seamless connection to a full range of in-house services including brokerage and construction management

What We Seek

  • Tax abatements, credits, and refunds
  • Recruitment and training assistance
  • Relocation expense reimbursement
  • Favorable utility rates
  • Taxable and tax exempt industrial revenue bonds
  • Infrastructure and fixed-asset grants
  • Transportation improvements
  • Low Interest loans
  • Forgivable debt 
  • Expedited permitting and variances
