How SR&ED can be useful in the Software & Technology industry

The SR&ED program can be very useful for companies in the software, AI, blockchain, big data, and cybersecurity industries, as it can help to fund R&D activities that are necessary to innovate and stay competitive.

Eligible activities may include the development of new algorithms, the improvement of existing software or blockchain applications, the creation of new cryptographic techniques, or the implementation of new cybersecurity measures. Companies can receive tax credits or refunds for eligible R&D activities, which can help offset the costs associated with innovation and reduce the financial risk of developing new technologies. This can be especially valuable in fast-moving industries like software and cybersecurity, where the ability to stay ahead of the curve is critical to success.

Partnering with our dedicated team of SR&ED experts can help turn your innovative ideas into reality and maximize your returns on R&D investments!

Examples of activities eligible for the SR&ED tax credit

  • Creating decision-making tools based on predictive and optimization models;
  • Automatize network risk scoring by analyzing historic cybersecurity datasets and determine vulnerable network areas with AI;
  • Improving the encryption standards in order to enhance their resistance toward quantum-based attacks;
  • Implementing AI methods to identify threats and prevent cyberattacks by creating a model of analyzing big datasets and recognizing patterns of malicious activities;
  • Developing a machine learning algorithm capable of detecting phishing and spam.
