We achieve high client satisfaction and retention by recognizing “unseen” claims, sending monthly tracking reports and offering competitive fees from the outset.
Why shouldn’t we do our own SR&ED claims – we’re clever and already know how our own business works?
Answer: You know all about your technology and accounting but it is unlikely you are familiar with the path to a successful SR&ED claim. The criteria for submitting an “Accepted As Filed” SR&ED claim is extensive and can be fraught with many unseen and protracted loopholes. The criteria for each company is different too. For your company to figure out how to navigate this path to a speedy and maximized SR&ED claim would be time-consuming and a big distraction from your core business focus. Relying on a SR&ED expert gets your claims done faster, more accurately and with a lower risk of a CRA review and subsequent downward adjustments. If your claim does go to review, Goulet Associates champions the claim and works to keep your accounting and R&D people’s involvement to a minimum.
How will I save money?
a) eliminate part-time in-house SR&ED person;
b) less R&D personnel time wasted, since we know the right questions to ask;
c) less accounting work;
d) refund cheque arrives sooner.
What will it cost me?
Answer: Our fees are competitive and typically calculated as a percentage of your SR&ED refund. We are proud of the value of our service and confident of your repeat business. And of course, will not file any claim we do not believe will be 100% successful.
When do I pay you?
Answer: We are paid on a contingency basis, so you pay us only after you get your refund.
