Life Sciences Organizations: Services Offered

Tax Services & Consulting for Life Sciences Companies

Aura Advisors works with scaling life sciences companies based anywhere in the United States as well as international companies with US subsidiaries. Many of our clients work in the digital health, drug development, or device manufacturing spaces, but we have the expertise to support firms in any area of focus.

We aim to serve as a consulting partner, working with your firm year-round to optimize your tax liability and ensure compliance.

Tax Credit & Incentive Support

As a life sciences company, you may be eligible for various tax credits, such as the Research & Development (R&D), Employee Retention Credit (ERC), or Orphan Drug credit. We help you claim each credit you qualify for.

Tax Compliance


Through federal filing, state filing, international disclosures, 1099s, estimated tax payments, and tax planning services, Aura Advisors ensures your life sciences firm stays in compliance with federal and state tax laws.

Accounting for Income Taxes

Approach financial audits with confidence thanks to ASC 740 & ASC 740-10 services. Ensure your financial statements are ready for a bank or investor requirement, new acquisition request, or as mandated for public trading by having Aura Advisors prepare your tax provision.

Transaction Planning

If your life sciences firm is involved on either side of a merger or acquisition, Aura Advisors can help with transaction planning. Set a fair purchase price, uncover unknown liabilities, and clarify areas of exposure with our M&A due diligence support.

“We have worked closely with Dana and her team at Aura Advisors for the past several years on our tax accounting and have always received nothing short of outstanding service in terms of diligence, timeliness and rigorousness. This is an A+ team, and I highly recommend them.”
