“SR&ED” (also known as “SR & ED” or “SRED”) refers to the Canadian government’s “Scientific Research and Experimental Development” program. This robust 3 Billion dollar annual CRA SR&ED program awards 20 000 companies SRED credits annually. SRED credits are not just for traditional “high tech” companies. Any company in any industry likely may have certain parts of their business that qualify them for CRA SRED Credits at any given time. Many businesses are completely unaware that they qualify for the lucrative SRED tax credit program until they speak with a SRED tax consultant.
