Gaining Your Unclaimed SR&ED Tax Credit$

TaxCredits 2013

Wednesday, October 23, 2013  |  8:00 am - 10:00 am  |  Hampton Inn  |  Oakville ON Eventbrite - Gaining Your Unclaimed SR&ED Tax Credit$

The Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR & ED) is an incentive program administrated by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) since the mid-1980’s for Canadian companies who perform research and development within Canada.   It is designed to encourage the development and advancement of Canadian Technologies, as well as create hi-tech, skilled jobs in Canada.

The rules are complex; it is estimated that almost $3.5B goes unclaimed, because companies are not aware of the program, or are not aware of the types of activities that are eligible for funding, or just do not know how to claim for it.    Needless to say, every business needs to explore all potential sources of revenue - particularly credits that go directly to the bottom line.

Interactive, Participant Led Session              

There are no pre-determined contents for this session, except that the discussion will revolve around various aspects of SR&ED and cover the basic what, why and how of the program. The participants will determine the rest of the contents based on pre-event conversation with the presenter in a private Linkedin group.  It can range from the intent of the program to the eligibility criteria from hi-tech start-ups’ perspective, to what CRA is doing is to ensure that more organizations take advantage of the program. 

We will try to make the discussion as varied and useful as possible.  The presenter has successfully prepared and filed 160+ SR&ED claims valued at over $60 million [2003-‘12], mostly for software development, manufacturing, telecom and high-tech start-ups.  He will try to answer any questions you may have about the program.
