Hello and welcome
Why choose us?
First Canadian SRED Consultants Inc.’s approach is unique. In short; we work with you to establish a plan for your projects, to teach you how to conduct your projects so as to use the SR&ED program with confidence. We help you understand what elements of your projects are eligible, and the specific reasons why. Then we assist you in an ongoing project and activity assessment, to be sure you are documenting and recording your progress. Finally, we prepare confident and well vetted claims in cooperation with your technical staff and accountant, to be certain your credits are processed in the shortest time frame.
Integrity moves the process forward. CRA representatives have told us they know the names of the companies they need to watch for. That’s why we always stay on the right side of any question. We like to say: “you can’t be an honest person on a part time basis.”. Count on First Canadian for a worry free claim.
We are teachers first and foremost. We teach you valuable concepts that keep you gaining credits on a daily basis. Then we are coaches. We visit regularly and help you keep up your game. Finally, we are advocates. We help you file your claim, and we defend it vigorously.
We get the job done.
Tax credits are your right, but only if you meet all the qualifications. This is an ever changing standard. So how do we meet the challenge? By setting our standards higher than the government’s.
More about us
We are experienced and conscientious tax credit advocates. We study the laws, attend the seminars, absorb the frequent regulatory changes, and generally spend the greater part of our time sharpening our knowledge and methods to get you your deserved tax credits.
We promote and teach valuable concepts for qualifying your R&D work for tax credits. We assist in organizing and presenting your claims for review. We catalogue your efforts on an ongoing basis, not just at the year end. We write expert interpretations of your technological efforts using the terminology of your industry.
It’s a living! But its also exciting to help science, industry, and business mesh with the government for such positive outcomes. Canada is first in many things, but we’ve fallen behind in innovation. But every person we meet in our line of business…they all want to change this. We are witnessing change.
We work hand-in-hand with you and your people. We are knowledgeable in general technology, and have direct experience in computer science, internet and communications engineering, manufacturing, robotics, aeronautics, the food industry, and many more. You won’t be bothered with struggling to convey your ideas, we can keep up. Our interview process is casual and minimally intrusive. We are always just one phone call away to answer questions or provide advice.
Is it worth it?
It’s not only worth it, it may be the most valuable work you do this year.
Let’s consider the following scenario.
You do work worth 25,000.00 on your invoice. It takes 3 men 2 weeks to do it. Let’s assume a shop rate of 45$/hr
You use $400.00 in general costs, and $1200.00 in materials.
In an overly simple example we have made a gross profit of $157.50/hr in the last 2 weeks from this job.
Based on these figures I can make this refund estimate if 50% of the work qualified.
If you spent 1 hour with us to document and claim 50% of this work as SR&ED you made $3379.12 in that hour (minus our fee of course)
What our clients say about us
- I have to say that this write up has gotten me totally excited - you have been able to articulate all my work better than I could have. Not only is it accurate, you've validated all my thinking, which is more than just a little helpful.
- There's times when your people seem to know our project better than we do. Your project descriptions were bang-on.
