Financing SR & ED Canada program claims in Canada comes with issues that can either slow down your claim or speed it up. Knowing what works and what doesn't in SRED CRA finance goes a long way towards a successful acceleration of R&D cash flow.

 

SR&ED Financing  To Access Your  Refund Before Filing  & Auditing  Of Your Claim

 

Let's dig in on your sr&ed guide to tax credit financing under the federal government of  Canada's Scientific Research And Experimental Development ' Program, aka  ' shred tax credit program Canada, 'via the Government of Canada!   Canadian businesses that file claims received cash via refundable tax incentives around their work in scientific or technological advancement.

 

SRED Loans are non-dilutive debt financing for your sr ed work that help clients avoid a focus on additional equity that might be required to fund operations - this is especially important during the early stages of business growth in the development stage of a company. Many software firms fund their sr&ed claims as an example as they fund software development for their innovative applications. Accessing working capital without the need to give up any equity ownership in your firm is a valuable tool!  A sr&ed claim is not a grant so your firm can monetize and cash flow sr&ed claims. Public companies can still claim sr&ed incentives, but claims are not in the form of a cash refund.

As we've said, numerous obstacles exist in the SR&ED program that can hamper your ability to recover funds quickly for qualified sr ed expenditures. Having said that, doing certain things right can have the opposite effect - reversing the R and D development activity sr ed tax cash flow drain when you are successful with this type of funding and financing option.

 

GETTING UP TO SPEED ON SR&ED TAX CREDITS AND THE SRED BRIDGE LOAN PROCESS

 

Recent changes in the last couple of years really levelled the playing field regarding the SR ED refundable tax credit and the claim you file with your corporate income tax return. However, seen by some as a ' sred grant, 'in fact, it's a refundable tax credit. SRED eligibility comes down to the quality of your claim under government guidelines, helping you avoid audit risk for your eligible project.

 

THE ROLE OF YOUR SR&ED CONSULTANT IN THE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT TAX CREDIT CANADA

 

Business owners certainly have the option of preparing their claim themselves - in fact, who better understands what they are trying to achieve in research and development than the business owner/manager themselves regarding your sr&ed eligible expenses? Consultants help establish work done under the CRA guidance around scientific or technological advancement

 

 

 

SR&ED FINANCING TIPS TO GET YOUR REFUNDnt

 

Yet, as in any ' government' program with some complexity attached to it, sometimes some experience is helpful. Enter the SRED consultant for the r&d tax credit Canada  - someone who prepares and helps file your claim at tax return time.

As a financing tip, you should known consultants can be compensated on a strict ' fee ' basis. In most cases, they work on a contingency basis, ‘taking a percentage of the total amount recovered under the refundable tax credit program.

 

Your consultant's quality vis credibility and expertise play a key role in sr&ed financing. While the industry seems to have eliminated the ' bad actors,'  the key point here is that a reputable consultant maximizes your claim and adds credibility to the CRA validation process around your claim - which in fact may include an audit and meeting with the CRA rep.

 

Preparing your claim yourself, of course, saves you a ton of money. At the same time, it also raises a flag to CRA SR&ED folks that your claim has the potential to be 'non-compliant to the rules of the program re-audit risk etc., while also potentially adding to processing time.

PREPARING YOUR  SRED BRIDGE LOAN APPLICATION - EASIER THAN YOU THINK 

 

What government program isn’t associated with paperwork for any business opportunity ?!   While that might be a ' myth vs. reality ' statement, the fact is that the govt has tried to streamline the program re online applications, initial screening to ensure validity, etc.

 

While we can go round and round on the merits of a good claim and who prepares it and how, at the end of the day, it's simply ensuring your claim is ' eligible ' and that you have the ' documentation' to back it up, accompanied with your income tax return.

 

EXAMPLE OF A SR&ED LOAN ON YOUR SR ED CLAIM REFUNDABLE INVESTMENT TAX CREDIT

 

As far as we're concerned, financing tax credits is easier than the time your sr&ed consultant spends writing one up for your eligible expenditure. Claims are financed uniquely - they are financed as  ' bridge loans ' - providing you with funds for up to 70% of the combined value of your claim under a bridge financing mechanism.

 

No payments are made during the loan duration, and you receive the balance of funds from 'Canada Revenue Agency CRA' when your cash refund claim is approved, less financing costs that are mezzanine rates in nature.  That's a solid cash flow solution.

In many cases, your firm can also set up an ongoing credit facility for your SR&ED financing for future claims, allowing you to access funds much earlier for a future government tax credit claim.
