The event below took place on April 30, 2015, at the Innovacorp Enterprise Centre. Here's a PDF of the slides from the session.

The words “tax incentive” can be like music to the ears – especially at this time of year.   

The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Program encourages Canadian businesses to conduct R&D that will lead to new or improved technologically advanced products or processes.
The incentive program, administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), gives claimants cash refunds and/or tax credits for their expenditures on eligible R&D done in Canada. (No wonder it’s the single largest source of federal funding for industrial R&D in the country.)
Join us on April 30 (by sheer coincidence, we swear!) at the Innovacorp Enterprise Centre in Halifax. Our panel of experts from the CRA will explain what projects are eligible for the tax credit and what the CRA looks for when evaluating claims. This session will give you a better understanding of the program for your start-up, and most important, will show you how to apply for the SR&ED tax credit.

Here’s our panel of experts on deck for the session:

•    Chris Andrews, Research and Technology Advisor, CRA-SR&ED
•    Darryl Dawson, Research and Technology Advisor, CRA-SR&ED
•    Bruce Harnish, Financial Review Technical Advisor, CRA-SR&ED
