Basic SR&ED Refund Calculator

Last Update: March 2019.

This calculator is meant to provide a quick, unofficial look at how much your business could potentially recover using the SR&ED program. We built it to give your company an easy way to get an idea of what SR&ED could offer so you can gauge if pursuing a claim is in your best interest.

This is by no means a complete calculation as it is generated without insight into your current tax situation. There are a few assumptions that are made & as well as some limitations:

  • Your fiscal year end is December 31st.
  • Specified employees are not treated separately from unspecified employees.
  • No distinction is made between materials consumed and materials transformed.
  • In years where provincial tax credit rates change, the percentage has been pro-rated.
  • Capital Expenditures are excluded, even in provinces that still offer this incentive.
  • Additional top-ups dependent on specific contracts with research institutions have been excluded.
  • Expenditure limits and business size are not accounted for.

Despite these limitations, we hope you will find this helpful when determining whether it’s worth pursuing this tax credit.
