Taxation – R&D and Innovation (SR&ED)

The business world is a field in which the landscape is constantly evolving. To thrive in such an environment, companies need to keep up with the technological and scientific advances in their industry. All optimal growth strategies include a research and development component and start with a well thought-out financing plan.

To this end, a number of tax incentives exist to encourage innovation and to support those companies that take the necessary financial and technological risks:

  • Scientific Research and Experimental Development Tax Incentive Program (SR&ED);
  • Tax credit for the development of e-business (TCEB);
  • Tax credit for the production of multimedia titles (PMT).

Being thoroughly familiar with the ins and outs of these complex and frequently changing programs (Canada Revenue Agency, Revenu Québec, Investissement Québec, etc.), our specialists will not only guide you through them but also help you get the most out of them.

Our turnkey services take into consideration the specific needs of your company and industry, so as to obtain the ideal combination for you—thus, freeing you up to concentrate on what you do best.
