Companies leaving money on the table
The federal government provides $3 billion dollars in funding claims made under the SR&ED tax credit program. It is estimated that there is almost $2 billion dollars in funding that goes unclaimed, because companies are not aware of the program, or are not aware of the types of activities that are eligible for funding.
A common misconception is the belief that the SR&ED tax credit program was created exclusively for the high-tech sector. SR&ED is not performed in laboratories only. It can happen in an office behind a computer or on the shop floor.
When modifying a product to make it more durable or precise or when altering an internal process to make it more profitable or efficient, workers are not necessarily “just doing their job”. The work they are doing may actually be experimental development and might qualify for an SR&ED tax credit. more
