Richard Moore

Former CRA Auditor

The CRA employed me to audit hundreds of taxpayers’ SR&ED claims in software, hardware, IT, and multimedia from 1996 to 2000. I’ve worked at IBM, Blackberry and NorthernTelecom, and founded 6 startups. An Electrical Engineer, MBA from UBC I taught at Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia, University of Victoria, and commercialized research at the University of Waterloo.

I'll navigate the CRA's approval process for you

The CRA hired me and 2 dozen specialists to interpret the Income Tax Act during the formation of SR&ED department in Vancouver during the late 1990s. I was an “Expert Witness” for the CRA’s Special Investigations Unit and Department of Justice.

Asset 12

I monitor CRA's policy changes.

The underlying financial calculations are complex, different in each province. Most accountants get them wrong.  CRA’s perspective is arcane. 

Read my blog.

Asset 9

I understand the CRA's perspective.

We’ll explain to the CRA why your activities qualify for SR&ED, from the CRA’s perspective. Your SR&ED claim is more likely to be approved… without an audit.

Asset 8

The CRA is therefore more likely to approve your SR&ED claim.

We’ll prepare a 4-page explanation for the CRA to understand why your activities qualify, and prepare documentation so we’re ready to justify your SR&ED claims.

You'll benefit by interacting with just one person.

Other SR&ED consultants require 2 people:
an accountant and a technical writer.

I perform both these functions… so you’ll pay less and receive better  service, faster.
