SR&ED Tax Specialists

Providing both tax and technical services to clients to maximize their Research and Development claims.

What is SR&ED?

Through the Scientific Research & Experimental Development program, Canada Revenue Agency provides tax credits to qualifying companies in the research and development sector to offset the costs of developing new technology and allow them to re-invest in future projects.

SR&ED is also very subjective.

In 2008 one of our founders wrote and presented a 26 page paper discussing the definition of SR&ED at the Canada Tax Foundation in Winnipeg. The definition hasn’t changed since then, but the interpretation can (and does) change based upon who is interpreting it.

While difficult to define, it’s a little easier to say what the benefits are under the program. Small BC-based Canadian-controlled Private Corporations (CCPCs) with an “expenditure limit” in excess of $100k and eligible wages of $100k, can expect a refund of $64,325 if they aren’t taxable.

Larger corporations (non-CCPCs) can qualify for a tax reduction of $36,425 on the same $100,000 of eligible wages.

  • CCPCs can earn 64.325% of eligible wages in refunds

  • Non-CCPCs earn 36.425% of eligible wages to apply against tax payable
