What is SR&ED?

The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax incentive program is a federal tax incentive program designed to encourage Canadian businesses of all sizes and in all sectors to conduct research and development (R&D) in Canada. Each year, the SR&ED program provides over $3 billion in tax incentives to over 20,000 claimants. Of these, about 75% are small businesses.

Many businesses confuse innovation with SR&ED – but the policies that govern SR&ED are very strict. If you believe SR&ED and innovation are the same, you may be in for a surprise!
