Through the years it has been recognized that a few corporations in Chemical Industry don’t consider that they are qualified for R&D tax credits. The truth is that you can recapture a considerable portion of your eligible SR&ED expenditures such as salary and wages, materials, subcontractors as well as some overheads in the form of cash or tax credits. For Canadian Controlled Private Corporations (CCPCs) the refundable tax credit is 35% up to the first $3 million of eligible expenditures and 20% on the excess expenditure amounts. Non-CCPC organizations can acquire non-refundable tax credits of 20% of the eligible expenditures if the SR&ED has been performed in Canada.
