• Confused by SR&ED? 
    Worried about a CRA Audit?
    Rather focus on real business?

    We understand - we've been there!  Canadian industry has a long standing love-hate relationship with SR&ED.  The benefits are great, but the rules are complex and the bureaucracy is "difficult".  One misstep can lead to years of CRA audit headaches.  You need knowledgeable expert help to get it right , but that can be expensive and how do you know it's worth it?

3 Simple Steps to SR&ED Success

1. Initial Consultation (no fee, no obligation, no pressure) – We will meet with you (virtual or in-person) to discuss your SR&ED needs.  This usually takes an hour or less.  If you have a legitimate SR&ED claim that we can help with, we’ll give you a proposal and time to think it over.  We don’t mind if you shop around (we encourage it!).

2. Claim Preparation - We will work with your technical and accounting leads to gather SR&ED input information and prepare the SR&ED claim.  This typically takes ~2 hours of your leads’ time up front.  We can usually get a first draft back to your leads for review and any additional inputs within 2 weeks, and we typically only need a single review cycle.  The entire preparation process usually takes about a month.

3. Delivery – We provide you with a completed SR&ED claim that your tax accountant can import into your corporate return.  We’ll work with your accountant if any questions arise during that process.  Once the return has been filed with CRA, we act as your representative through to completion of SR&ED claim processing.  That means CRA contacts us instead of you with any questions and audit issues.  In the event of an audit we’ll help your team prepare, attend the audit meeting(s) to facilitate, and handle any follow up communications with CRA.
