SR&ED for Start-ups

SR&ED (Scientific Research & Experimental Development) is a government program that rewards companies that perform R&D in Canada. The program makes Canada a more economically competitive and technologically advanced nation and it has been in existence since the 80’s. The Canadian incentive program is one of the most generous R&D programs in the world. This is not a grant – you are entitled to this money under the Income Tax Act.

Many start-ups in the technology and science sectors qualify for the SR&ED Program. 

If you answer yes to any of the following questions you could be sitting on an untapped refund.

  • Are you incorporated in Canada with a Business Number (BN)?
  • Do you operate in a sector of science, technology, or medicine?
  • Have you or will you incur labour, subcontractor, material, or overhead expenditures?
  • Have you developed any prototypes?
  • Are you facing technological or scientific uncertainty with products, devices, or technologies?
  • Are you attempting to achieve an advancement in knowledge in a field of technology, science, or medicine?

There are only 3 criteria for eligibility plus evidence.

  • Scientific uncertainty
  • Scientific advancement
  • Systematic investigation
  • Scientific content and evidence

We can set you up for success with the SR&ED Program
