This section contains legal cases related to SR&ED.  If you’ve reached this section of our website, it may be that you’re struggling with SR&ED. We encourage the following:

  • Contact a Tax Lawyer. They are experts and can help. Learn more about the benefits of legal help in our article Lawyering Up for SR&ED.
  • Stay Informed. Take some time to understand the dispute resolution process for the SR&ED program, which we’ve outline in our SR&ED Review and Audit guide.
  • Understand the Court System. Find out how the courts are organized and the different levels of court.
*** This information is presented for educational purposes only and does not constitute legal advice. You should retain legal counsel if you require legal advice regarding your individual tax situation. *** 

*Relevance Score Legend: 

1 (High): Cases which address complex aspects of SR&ED policy not clearly defined in the collected CRA policies. These tend to set precedent for future policy and cases.

2 (Medium): Cases which deal with relatively complex matters of CRA policy interpretation but which do not necessarily set legal precedent.

3 (Low, routine): Cases with clear-cut resolutions that address and uphold relatively fixed aspects of SR&ED program policy, such as cases involving missed deadlines.

4 (Low): Cases in which the specific topic of the case is not SR&ED, but involve SR&ED peripherally.
