SR&ED consultant salary

Looking at the books: what are SR&ED consultants making each year?

Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) claimants often wonder — and rightfully so — about how much of their claim return goes into the pockets of SR&ED consultants. Furthermore, claimants are also curious about the annual salary of consultants, be they technical writers, file managers, etc.

This week, we’ve rounded up five SR&ED consultant job postings to compare average salary amounts in this sector.

DisclaimersIt should be noted that these salaries reflect various experience levels and job descriptions. Furthermore, these salaries do not necessarily reflect SR&ED consultant salaries on a larger scale. Lastly, these job postings/salaries are accessible online as of December 26, 2014, but hyperlinks or postings may eventually expire.

Final Thoughts and Further Reading

By averaging the five salaries listed above (including the mean value of salaries listed as a range i.e. $55k-70k = $62.5k/year), the SR&ED consultants in these specific job postings would have an average annual salary of roughly $85k. However, despite there being a number of listings for positions at SR&ED consultant firms, very few postings listed salary amounts — most were commensurate with experience and qualifications.
