SR&ED for Tech Companies

What is SR&ED?

The Scientific Research and Experimental Development Tax Incentive allows companies and individuals to apply for tax credits or refunds for scientific research and experimental development across many industries. This unique program allows businesses to invest in technology and to recoup funds for future projects.

Who is eligible?

Canada Revenue Agency has distinct eligibility and documentation requirements for SR&ED claims. As such, it’s important to combine the knowledge and experience of accountants and engineers to ensure a successful application.

If you are extending knowledge in a particular area, or have closed a gap by developing technology, you may be eligible to claim.
