The SR&ED Program uses tax incentives to encourage Canadian businesses of all sizes and in all sectors to conduct research and development (R&D) in Canada. These tax incentives come in three forms: an income tax deduction, an investment tax credit and, in certain circumstances, a refund. Eligible SR&ED work, will result in your investment tax credit being at least 15% and can be as much as 35% of qualified SR&ED expenditures. Any unused investment tax credits, can be carried back three years or forward 20 years and applied against tax payable for other years.
