Medical SR&ED FAQ


Can a Department structure involving pooled revenues and group responsibilities be eligible for SR&ED?

Having a complicated corporate structure simply means you need a SR&ED expert. Upon review, we are often able to define or, if necessary, create the financial ‘path’ to your SR&ED expenses and thus, make your company SR&ED eligible.
       
My company and I do R & D, however, our efforts are paid from various
sources such as universities, pharmaceutical companies, government grants/ subsidies and the like; is my company SR&ED eligible if they are involved?

Having external sponsors pay for R&D does not necessarily exempt you from being SR&ED eligible. Being clear about financial structures uncovers opportunities and avoids “double-dip” issues.
       
Do I need to have a professional corporation in order to be eligible for SR&ED refunds?
In most cases individual doctors make claims based on wages paid by their professional corporations. The SR&ED claims are made by the professional corporation and not the individual.

Funding Medical Researchers


Medical research and development in a wide range of scientific activities qualifies for SR&ED funds:

  • Development of treatment protocols and therapies.
  • Clinical trials of drugs and devices.
  • Invention and development of medical devices.
  • Fundamental science.


Medical researchers with clinical revenue in a professional corporation can significantly increase their income with the SR&ED program.
