ROSEVILLE, CA, Aug. 2, 2016: GALLINA LLP recently merged Folsom, CA based Back Bay Incentives Advisors LLC (BBIA), into its Tax Services group effective July 1, 2016. By merging and furthering their strategic growth plan, BBIA and GALLINA aim to expand existing tax offerings and opportunities to their clients.
BBIA and its principals John M. Kapral JD, CPA, LLM and Jessica Langenegger bring over 10 years of experience with them to GALLINA. They have provided R&D tax credit analysis, consulting support and successful audit defense work for their clients in diverse industries including, but not limited to, software development, engineering and construction, aerospace and defense, agriculture and food products, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, sustainable materials and products, and renewable energy.
Larry Taylor, GALLINA’s Managing Partner believes that “The addition of BBIA’s capabilities will be an important component of growth financing and tax savings for existing clients, and will also help the firm in developing new business opportunities” given the recent legislative changes including the permanency of R&D tax credit effective January 1, 2016.
Kapral will be based out of the firm’s Roseville, CA office and will take on the role as Partner in the Tax Credits and Incentives group. He states “Given the complexity of commerce today and the need to constantly innovate to thrive, R&D tax credit is one of the most useful tools for companies.” He continues “It gives them real competitive advantages and also a leverage when hiring the best people and pursuing new markets.”
