How to Claim
There are two options for you to claim SR&ED expenses:
Traditional Method: Claim all your SR&ED expenditures in the year, and identify your overhead expenses. This method requires meticulous records and documentation, which we can help you with!
Proxy Method: Calculate a notional amount for your expenditures, known as the prescribed proxy amount. Instead of providing every record you have, this method approximates the following expenses based on a calculation:
- Office supplies
- Salaries and wages
- Contract work
- Travel and training
- Property taxes
- Employer benefits
- Maintenance of facilities and equipment
It’s important to assess your company’s finances and characteristics before deciding on a method, since they differ in their treatment of expenditures. We can help you assess your situation adequately and ensure you pick the most effective method of claiming.
