The R&D tax credit program / SRED tax credit program

The R&D tax credit program / SR&ED tax credit program (Scientific Research and Experimental Development) is a financial incentive endorsed by both Revenue Canada and Revenu Québec to encourage innovation, creation, invention, improvement and development of new skills within your company. This program is open to all industries and offers the largest source of financial support through reimbursement of your investments in research and development (R&D). In most cases, these payments are made by check.


Indicators of R&D / SRED activities in your business

Many companies invest large sums of money in research and development (R&D) every year but fail to file an application for R&D tax credits / SR&ED tax credits either because they are unaware that the program exists or because they believe to be ineligible. If you have developed or improved a product, device, equipment, process, prototype or started a pilot project, it is likely that the activities you have undertaken qualify for a tax credit for R&D / SR&ED. If you have started a project in the last two (2) years and encountered technical difficulties resulting in unexpected costs due to budget overruns and / or delays incurred, these can also be indications of R&D / SR&ED.

Wages are often one of the largest expenditures incurred by a company.
