What activities qualify for SR&ED?

You must generate new technical knowledge, and learn the CRA’s jargon:
Technological Uncertainties” are problems that you couldn’t solve by applying generally-available knowledge;
Technological Advancements” are solutions to those problems, new technical knowledge that you generated. 

Systematic Investigation

Designs, tests and plans.

Data analysis

Measure something, so you can  validate your hypothesis.

Documentation of your activities

Keep a diary and records of who did what, when.

Contractor's fees

You’ll receive 33.2% of fees you paid to contractors.


You’ll recover 41.5% of the costs of physical materials “consumed”.


75% of your CEO’s time can qualify for SR&ED.

THE cra's perspective recently changed

The CRA needs to know
"Why" and "How” 
you performed your activities:

The CRA's definition of Technological Uncertainties and Technological Advancements remain unchanged, but these are the new buzz-words:

The "Why” requirement:

The reason why you performed your activities must have been to understand new things about the technology you utilize, not merely to apply it.

The "How” requirement:

You must attempt to verify a hypothesis by experimenting to test potential solutions, measuring results and analyzing data.

Why should you hire 
a former CRA auditor?

The CRA’s perspective is different from your viewpoint.

We’ll extract information from your technical records and IRAP Application to explain why your activities qualify to the CRA.

Your SR&ED claim will be clear, concise and complete,
so the CRA will likely approve it promptly.

We’ll identify eligible expenses in your General Ledger,
then I’ll prepare all SR&ED financial data for your accountant
to enter into your T2 corporate income tax returns. 

If the CRA decides to audit your SR&ED claims we’ll both defend them.

Save your time

Don’t overlook any.

You’ll receive your cash more quickly

I understand how how the CRA’s arcane rules apply to your facts and circumstances..
