Update #2: PWC SR&ED Seminar – Thursday, Jan 29

Those tickets went fast! By popular demand, the good folks at PWC are going to run an Afternoon SR&ED Seminar Thursday, January 29 as well.

SR&ED is easily the largest tax credit program available to Canadian companies for recouping R&D spending with over $4 Billion being distributed each year. SME’s can recoup 35% of their R&D spending from the Federal program and then layer on Provincial tax credits as well. Thousands of tech entrepreneurs across Canada have used SR&ED to bootstrap their companies and stretch R&D dollars. This is not a government program you want to ignore. So you might be concerned by the recently announced changes to the SR&ED claims form (T661) and process.

pwcWell then register now for the upcoming PWC SR&ED Breakfast Seminar. There is no cost to attend, but seating is limited, so you’ll want to RSVP as soon as possible.

We invite you to join senior members of the PricewaterhouseCoopers SR&ED group as they discuss the implications of these recent changes on the preparation of your SR&ED claims and your claiming processes.

The seminar will highlight:
• What the changes are (and what has not changed)
• How to adapt to the changes
• Transitioning from the old form to the new form
• Old vs. new terminology

We hope you can join us. We know you will not want to miss this opportunity. If you have questions related to this topic that you wish to be addressed during the seminar, please include them in your RSVP.

    Thanks for posting this Jonas. SRED is a really useful and helpful programme that probably can be taken advantage of by almost every startup.

    In the interest of disclosure, was StartupNorth paid to advertise this event? Just wondering.

    StartupNorth was not paid to advertise this event. That said, PwC has sponsored many community events and projects including StartupCamps and StartupEmpire. We definitely value PwC's participation in our community and their seminars are always really informative. Since you are curious, part of the genesis for this SR&ED seminar was a conversation we had at StartupEmpire about getting authoritative information out to the community, something we hope to do more of this year. Hope to see you at the morning session!

    SRED is a useful program. I’ve used PWC for help with the application in the past but I was a bit underwhelmed by the results.

    Recently, I’ve talked with Advance-Tek (www.advance-tek.ca) about using their services to help with SRED filings. I definitely get a better feeling from these guys.
