The life sciences industry operates in a fast-paced, dynamic environment that requires you to be continuously focused on your business operations. Pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device companies operate in a highly competitive market saturated with innovation, disruption and ever-changing regulatory standards. Every company’s needs differ based on their current life cycle stage or stage of product development. Having a trusted advisor who is always available to offer sound guidance and novel and effective solutions can make all the difference in your company’s growth and success.

Withum’s Life Sciences Services Team offers innovative advisory, accounting, audit and tax solutions to privately-owned companies, companies with venture capital, angel or private equity-backing as well as and publicly traded companies. Whether you are an early-stage high-growth startup or an established and growing mature company, pursuing an IPO, secondary offerings or are entering into an exit transaction, our life sciences accountants, tax specialists and business consultants offer solutions backed by our collective knowledge and experience in the life science space.

Our goal is to give you the time you need to focus on your trade secrets, research and development, drive growth and provide unique value propositions within the market.

For early-stage and development-stage companies, one of the largest expenses typically incurred are costs associated with research and development activities (R&D). When developing new products and ideas, opportunities may exist to reduce payroll tax liability by qualifying for a refundable R&D tax credit.
