Have you heard about the Scientific Research & Experimental Development Tax Credit Program? The program uses tax incentives to encourage Canadian businesses of all sizes and in all sectors to conduct research and development in Canada.

On February 12, join us for a Lunch + Learn with Paul Farmer, as he explains the program and how it can help your company. He will explain everything from project categories, how the CRA defines an SR&ED project (versus an R&D project), eligibility criteria, what costs can be claimed, filing due dates, what needs to be submitted, and CRA’s processing timelines.
