In this blog, we will be answering some commonly asked questions when it comes to SRED credits.
SR&ED stands for Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) nation-wide tax credit or incentive devised by Canada Revenue Agency (CRA). It is a reliable financing scheme that has been running to help eligible companies gain financial authority and make use of tax credit early in the form of a loan and enjoy significant tax reliefs.
By now, you’d be wondering what is the eligibility of SR&ED claims?
The answer is simple. If you are a Canadian startup or a business performing research and development activities you are eligible. Canadian-controlled Private Corporation (CCPC) can qualify for 35% in Investment Tax Credits (ITC) up to the first 3 million dollars of the qualified expenses for SRED as well as 20% on excess amounts.
Other Canadian proprietorships, corporations, trusts and partnerships can enjoy 20% in ITCs of the qualified expenses for SRED.
