Congratulations to the Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton team, headed by Michel Lefebvre, Tax Partner, Montréal office, for having been retained by the group of enterprises involved in developing e-business to conduct a study on the economic impact of government assistance in the information technology sector, more specifically to continue/improve upon the tax credit for the development of e-business (CDAE) program.

Numerous IT businesses have been benefitting from this type of government assistance, which, among other things, helps create jobs and increase the competitiveness of our Quebec businesses in the market. Concerned by the federal Minister of Finance’s decision to cut scientific research and experimental development (SR&ED) tax credits in March 2012, these businesses would like the provincial government to extend the CDAE now, as it expires on December 31, 2015.

This initiative was reported in various media outlets such as Le Devoir, Les Affaires.com , MSN Technologies  and 98.5 FM.

If you would like to be part of this group, contact Michel Lefebvre at 514-393-4717 for more information.
