What you need to qualify
  1. SR&ED is not only for the science buffs. You can claim SR&ED for many different research and development costs.

  2. SR&ED eligible expenses that can be claimed are typically SR&ED wages, contractors and materials that are consumed or transformed within the research. 

  3. Provinces in Canada also have different tax credits that can be utilized in coordination with SR&ED at the federal level. This can lead to up to 60% of your research costs refunded back to your company at the end of each fiscal year.

  4. Time and evidence tracking could make or break your claim. It isn’t a first priority for any regular business owner. CRA looks for more activity-based time tracking methods.

As of August 2022, Atlantic Canadian Businesses have received over
$7.2 million in SR&ED tax refunds through Colum Consultants Inc.
