Review by Mohammad Amer, PMP; EIT

It was a enlightening seminar given by Jason to claim significant government incentives via the Federal government's Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR & ED) tax credit program. This is particularly useful to small and mid-size companies, to be aware of simple process in claiming the benefits offered by government.

Prior to seminar, I did not know that SR & ED program is applicable to other types of projects and not restricted to R&D product. In the presentation given during seminar Jason has exhibited that this program is also applicable to experimental projects and as well as not limited to 'high tech' companies.


Seminar on how the government Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) program can bring bottom-line benefits to your organization


If you or your company are involved in developing new (or improving existing) products, processes, or materials, you may be eligible to claim significant government incentives via the Federal government's Scientific Research & Experimental Development tax credit program. Attend this seminar to learn about more about the program, including eligibility criteria, the kinds of expenditures which can be claimed, the amount you could expect to recover, and what kind of documentation is required to support a claim. For companies already taking advantage of the program, you will gather important tips to maximize your claim size, how to more effectively deploy SR&ED within your organization, and to understand how the new filing process works for 2009. You will quickly see that qualifying for a claim and putting your company on a path to dollar recovery is a straightforward and uncomplicated process.

Jason Schwandt will be speaking about these topics on September 15th, 2009 at the Malvern Library Community Room
