Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) is a tax incentive program in Canada. This program is administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and is designed to encourage Canadian businesses of all sizes and in all sectors to conduct Research and Development (R&D) in Canada. Crowe MacKay’s SR&ED team is made up of Technical Specialists, Financial Specialists, and Tax Specialists, who have significant experience in the Engineering, Life Sciences, and Information Technology sectors.
We take the time to learn about your business, your team, and the key drivers that make your operations successful. We then use this knowledge to establish a foundation to prepare your SR&ED claim. In order for us to prepare a strong SR&ED claim, we must understand how your business works to develop a claim that is driven by the functions and actions of your business. From the data, we gain a better understanding of what SR&ED projects exist and what should be claimed. We also identify any weaknesses in your documentation per our information gathering process and work together to strengthen your claim.
Our team can assist you with all of your SR&ED considerations.
Some examples of this support include:
