SR&ED Tax Credit Calculator

The SRED calculator will estimate how much money your company or startup could save by applying for SR&ED tax credits. Many of our clients use it to estimate how much they can get back from their development costs, which are eligible for SR&ED tax credits.

How are SR&ED Tax Credits calculated?

The first step is to determine whether or not your company is a Canadian-controlled Private Corporation (CCPC). The amount you get back for your SR&ED claim can change significantly depending on the answer.

The CRA gives Canadian-controlled Private Corporations (CCPCs) a higher SR&ED refund than non-Canadian controlled private corporations (who can receive a non-refundable credit), people (proprietorships), or trusts. Partnerships are ineligible for the SR&ED programme since they’re not a taxpayer, however a tax credit can be provided to the individual members.

  • CCPCs get up to a 35% refund of their SR&ED tax credit qualifying spend, from Federal SR&ED.
  • All non-CCPCs get a non-refundable tax credit at 15% for qualifying SR&ED tax credit spend.

What doesn't the SR&ED tax calculator consider?

The SR&ED tax credit calculator is a helpful tool, but it can’t replace expert consultant advice or consider all factors to maximize your SR&ED tax credit. A few of these limitations or assumptions the SR&ED tax calculator has in calculating your SR&ED tax credits are:

  • Employees who are ‘specified’ are not treated differently than those who are not.
  • There is no distinction made between materials that have been consumed and those that have been transformed.
  • The percentage is pro-rated in years where provincial tax credit rates have changed.
  • Even in provinces that still offer this incentive, capital expenditures are excluded.
  • Additional top-ups based on specific research institution contracts have been excluded.
  • Limits on spending and the size of the company aren't taken into account.
