Is Utilizing SR&ED Credits without financing them absurd ? You decide



OVERVIEW – Information on the SRED tax credit loan in Canada. A SR ED financing consultant can accelerate the cash flow investment your firm has in refundable tax credits

A SR&ED tax credit loan seems like common sense logic for your firm’s R&D claim. A SR ED financing consultant is best prepared to assist you in cash flowing you claim. Here is why… and how, so let’s dig in.

If business people believe that time is truly money then the investment your firm makes in Canada’s Scientific Research and Experimental Development is true wealth! The process, especially for first time claimants can be a bit of a journey!

The role of your SR&ED financing advisor is NOT the same as that of the consultant that prepares your claim. Probably 99% of the refundable tax credit claims that are in fact filed in Canada are prepared by industry consultants who have both the expertise and reputation in preparing a claim that is both technically correct, as well as .. you guessed it… approved!

Since SRED claims are done in almost any industry it makes sense for you to pick the right firm or person that has the expertise to maximize your claim. The best people in this industry maintain solid relationships and communications with the good folks at Revenue Canada!

Over the years many changes, mostly positive have altered ‘ SHRED ‘. They include changes in per cent ages claimed/allowed, as well as the filing process itself, which has been greatly streamlined. It’s interesting to note that the majority of these consultants tend to get paid on a contingency basis – that helps alleviate the risk and time involved in preparing claims, putting the risk and pressure on the consultant, not your firm.

If you do in fact buy into our ‘ time is money’ concept then the actual time it takes to file a claim and have it either reviewed or audited by Revenue Canada just adds to the logic that you should consider financing your claim .

It is certainly not unusual to wait for the better part of a year for your refund. Therefore financing that claim either as you prepare it, or as soon as you file makes solid ‘ cash flow’ sense. If your firm has come this far in investing time and money in your research tax credit refund cash flowing it now and using the funds for any general company purpose certainly is a strong argument.

Any claim of almost any amount can be financed should you choose to cash flow your claim. Financing SR&ED claims can be done for any company, both start up, and ‘ mature’. First time filers welcome!

who can assist you with your SRED TAX CREDIT LOAN needs.
