Scientific Research and Experimental Development
The Canadian Scientific Research and Experimental Development Tax Incentive Program (SRED or SR&ED) provides support in the form of tax credits and/or refunds, to corporations, partnerships or individuals who conduct scientific research or experimental development in Canada. Any business that is involved in basic or applied research, or in advancing technology in order to improve or develop new materials, devices, products or processes may be eligible under the SR&ED program.
The SR&ED program is intended to encourage businesses of all sizes, particularly small to medium and start-up firms, to conduct research and development (R&D) that will lead to new, improved, or technologically advanced products, processes, devices, and materials. The Canadian SR&ED tax incentive is the government’s largest single support program for R&D. The program applies to numerous fields of science and technology such as information technology (IT), numerous engineering areas, and many other fields.
Jacoby and Games Chartered Professional Accountants do not conduct the technical write up, but we can direct you to organizations that can. We can assist you by assuring the appropriate method is applied and ensuring all eligible/applicable expenditures and provincial incentives are included in the SR&ED calculations to obtain the maximum allowed refund for your organization. We can submit the corporate return including the SR&ED claim or the SR&ED claim on its own.
Jacoby & Games communicates with our clients during the financial documentation review, CRA submission, responding to CRA enquires, informing clients on the CRA activity on the return or on the SR&ED claim status, and communicating the final outcome of the submission.
