Charles Riggs

Charles enjoys explaining the R&D tax credit to anyone (really, anyone) who happens to have the fortune of asking him about it. He wants business owners to understand the credit’s potential. Having helped dozens of companies grow by enabling them to keep more money in their own bank account rather than the government’s, he wants to see the same benefit for your business as well, through appropriate usage of the R&D tax credit.

While working at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in Los Angeles, CA, Charles was fortunate to work with several large, high-profile Fortune 500 companies from various industries. He also worked for another CPA firm, Gatto, Pope, & Walwick LLP in San Diego, CA where he was able to engage with small and medium-sized businesses, again of various industries.

Current clientele varies in size and location, so no matter where your business is located, and from start-ups to well established firms, he’s happy to work with you. Drop him a line so he can help you understand how your business can benefit from the R&D tax credit.

Charles currently resides in Utah with his wife and two children. Sometimes he’s not looking at spreadsheets full of tax savings because his wife has pulled him outside for some fresh air, and makes him hike around the mountains. He does enjoy games of all types, reading books of all varieties, lounging around, and lunch. He’ll usually say “Yes” if you ask him out to lunch.

Jeffrey Ting, CPA

After spending 8 years in the Marine Corps and 2 trips to distinctly unpleasant desert locations, Jeff decided that he loved that profession so much that he decided to pursue a life as remotely related to it as possible. This decision led him to a bachelor’s degree in accounting at the Leventhal School of Accounting at the University of Southern California.

Upon graduating, he found himself under the employ of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP in Los Angeles, CA. While there, he accrued compliance experience for large capital management firms for a few seasons before transferring to the specialized tax services practice where he helped clients save an aggregate of over $100 million with the R&D tax credit. His clients ranged from tech giants that reside in Silicon Valley to household entertainment names from Burbank and Hollywood.

After his 6 year tenure at PwC, he worked with Kong Basile Consulting to bring accounting and finance services to start-ups. There he became intimate with the environment in which relatively young companies operate and the backend functions that support their endeavors. He assisted with multiple functions outside of standard month to month financial statement prep and analysis such as payroll, accounts payable, accounts receivable, and cash runway analysis.

When he’s not helping companies find their footing in accounting or saving money with R&D tax credits, Jeff spends his time putting rubber to tarmac, racing time attack with his Civic Type R in Global Time Attack and Gridlife along with other local competitions.
