Boast SR&ED (Canada)

Fund greater
with SR&ED

Boast helps you drive Canadian innovation by seamlessly maximizing your access to Canada’s premier R&D funding program, SR&ED.

What is SR&ED?

Perhaps no other funding program gets as much attention as The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credit—and for good reason, as it helps CCPCs recoup a share of their innovation investments.

SR&ED is a federal innovation tax incentive program administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) that encourages Canadian businesses of all sizes and in all sectors to conduct research and development (R&D) in Canada.

SR&ED allows companies to claim upwards of 64% of their R&D expenditures as a tax rebate, helping CCPCs gain greater ROI on costs for innovation.

Accessing funding hasn’t always been easy

Tax credits are critical to accelerate innovation. But you need a partner who can help you access R&D claim dollars earlier, grow your claim size, and increase your claim accuracy.

Boast brings decades of experience and the latest technology together with experts who know your industry to offer the Boast advantage.
