Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Tax Credit These tax credits support Canadian innovation and may apply to businesses who improve a process, product, material or device. Over the past 15 years since they were introduced, we have helped many clients with their claims. Although the program is complicated, the SR&ED tax credit helps keep more cash in your business and can be very advantageous for you. Our clients typically handle their own technical writing or hire a technical consultant for this and we handle the number crunching. We work for an hourly rate, not on a contingent fee basis as do many other accounting firms. We’re here to maximize your tax credit options.
