Course: Avoiding Common Errors with SR&ED Forms - A Tutorial (LU)

The Scientific Research and Experimental Development ("SR&ED") tax credit program is a generous tax funding program available to clients that you may not have considered.  Medical doctors and many other professionals are presently benefiting from this program - don’t let ignorance or lack of confidence prevent your clients from accessing this funding. 

This webinar focuses on the practical application of financial policies with specific attention to common scenarios encountered when preparing a SR&ED application. The first portion of the session discusses multiple, interrelated policy documents, guides, and forms providing clear examples of both what to do – and what not to do – when submitting a SR&ED application.

In the second portion of the session, we will use the costs generated from the example to complete SR&ED related tax forms using TaxPrep software. We will provide a live walk-through, highlighting common mistakes and areas that require special attention.
