What are SR&ED Tax Credits?

Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) is a Canadian government tax credit program aimed at encouraging businesses of all sizes to conduct R&D to develop new — or improve existing — methods, processes, services and products

SR&ED Tax Credits provide non-dilutive growth funding to eligible Canadian businesses to offset the cost of innovation.

  • Up to 69% of eligible R&D expenses (depending on your province) may be refunded from CRA.
  • Eligible expenditures include salaries, sub-contractor fees and materials.
