FINANCING SR&ED TAX CREDITS IN CANADA & THE SBL LOAN
Government business loan funding in Canada, as well as the ability to access SRED tax credit loans, are two excellent ways to help fund your company. While many clients we speak to are looking for the proverbial 'grant,' the concept of applying and qualifying for grants is a challenge - but if your company does qualify for a grant many of those grants can be financed.
Want to raise capital and generate more cash flow - Let's dig in!!
For companies seeking SME COMMERCIAL FINANCE solutions, these programs stand head and shoulders above - these 2 programs fund over 12 Billion dollars each year when we consider both programs.
THE BENEFITS OF FINANCING YOUR R&D CLAIM - GROWTH FUNDING VIA SR&ED FINANCING
Cash flowing your tax incentives is a fast efficient way to get working capital back to your business.. and working!! The ability to receive funding within a short period of time ( usually a week or two ) allows you more effectively manage the cash available via government funding programs such as SR&ED. The ability to be cash flow positive at a time when your company is growing and making further investments in r&d for future growth is what the SR ED tax credit financing loan is all about.
Business owners should view financing strategies such as SRED loans for sr ed tax incentives as funding for their refundable investment tax credit that is non-dilutive to the equity in their business, while at the same time delivering more cash at a time when it's needed most. It's r&d capital on your terms and timelines and delivering predictable cash flows based on your investments and eligibility.
You can also finance the accrued credits of your ITC refund prior to filing your year-end claim - Grants can also be funded in a similar manner under the accrued spend process.
You’ll receive the accrued portion of your ITC refund or a future portion of your grant funding paid to you on-demand.
BEATING THE SR&ED WAITING GAME!
It's not a secret that government processing time can take longer than expected - in some cases a full year or more depending on claim size, audit request, etc - Funding sr ed claims gives you working capital now and more control over your spending.
THE CANADA SMALL BUSINESS FINANCING PROGRAM
While many may consider anything to do with government as 'overwhelming,' the reality is that both programs are straightforward. The Government Small Business Loan, aka the ' SBL, 'it's available to all new or established firms with revenues under five Million dollars. We also note that the program does not apply to publicly listed companies.
How can you qualify for the program, and, more importantly, do you qualify? Customers need to review the classes of assets that can be financed. The program's true power is that the rates are only 3% over prime. Terms of repayment are 5-10 years, and are you ready; a full personal guarantee of payment is not required!
How do firms such as yours (or your competitors!) use this type of loan financing? Typically these programs are used by companies to acquire assets, improve their business, purchase or develop software, and even in some cases, buy commercial real estate.
While we note that even business real estate can be financed with limited guarantees and great rates and terms, although the program is typically utilized for the purchase of equipment and funding leasehold improvements.
If business principals feel adequately prepared to source out this program's financing power, we strongly recommend that they begin this process. However, not everyone has the time for what is necessary to maximize their refundable tax credit, as well as the financial skills or acumen, and the ability or comfort level to complete this financing and maximize the sr&ed tax credit calculation.
Those people should seek out the aid of a trusted advisor and business financing expert to maximize their participation in the program for your sr ed tax credit claim.
WHAT IS THE SR&ED REFUND VIA SR ED TAX CREDITS?
The sr&ed refund for sr ed tax credits is an Investment Tax Credit ( ITC) for a Canadian controlled private corporation participating in CRA's Scientific Research & Experiment Development Program that is available to business taxpayers investing in R&D based on numerous eligibility factors.
Still, looking for that 'free money? Does it exist? Again, not really. But would you like to receive a check from the government for any processes, research or innovation that your firm has developed? If so, you want to maximize your participation in the government's SRED tax credit program via CRA / Canada Revenue Agency.
TAX CREDIT FINANCING
Looking for a faster option for your SRED claim? Once your firm or your SR&ED consultant has filed and prepared the claim for your tax credits, your refund can be financed, generating immediate cash flow via a bridge loan.
Claims that are financed under sr ed financing are structured as short term bridge loans - no monthly payments are made for the loan period, and typical loan to values are 75% of your claim via sr&ed tax credit eligibility.
