As part of an ongoing and important effort to ensure that government incentives are properly allocated, CRA guidance issued in March, 2013 clarifies that all claimants must declare whether they employed a consultant to help with their SR&ED claim preparation, and if so, to name that consultant. This action is in direct response to observed abuses of the program by those who would twist the rules for personal gain. It is of vital importance to ensure that those who help you with your claim preparation are above reproach. TCA has always supported such efforts and will never charge a contingent fee. Our engagements are dedicated to finding the true extent of eligible SR&ED activities.
