          What is SR&ED?

          The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax incentive encourages Canadian businesses of all sizes and all sectors to conduct Research & Development in Canada.

          With SR&ED you obtain a deduction or credit based on income expenditures and costs associated with R&D activities.

          The Federal Credit rate varies between 15 and 35% depending on the previous year’s taxable capital and if it is private/public, and Canadian controlled or not.

          Provinces may also offer a complimentary credit.
