SR&ED Tax Credit Preparation

Do I Qualify for SR&ED?

If you’re engaged in enhancing existing materials, devices, products, or processes, then the SR&ED tax credit program could be of great interest to you. At the very least, it’s worth having a conversation about it. While specific requirements must be met, the scientific research and experimental development program is available to Canadian corporations across all industries. We’ve encountered a wide range of projects, from preserving berries to recycling tires as well as exciting AI initiatives, so there are numerous avenues through which your company may qualify for SR&ED credits. We would be delighted to discuss your SR&ED eligibility whenever it suits you best.

How Much Will I Get Back?

At Bloom, we specialize in maximizing the benefits of the SR&ED tax credit program for eligible corporations. Depending on the province where you operate, you can potentially qualify for a refundable tax credit ranging from 50% to 64% of your qualifying expenditures. Our team of experts can help you navigate the program’s guidelines and rates specific to your province, ensuring you make the most of the available credits.

Qualifying expenditures include salaries, sub-contractor fees, and materials consumed or transformed during your R&D activities. With non-extendable deadlines, it’s essential to take timely action. By discussing your unique situation with Bloom, we can determine your SR&ED eligibility and help you maximize your claims, so you don’t miss out on any potential funds.
