In Canada, the SR&ED program distributes over $3 billion to approximately 23,000 Canadian companies conducting research. These don’t have to be research companies specifically; they’re often for-profit companies in a variety of sectors that encounter technological uncertainties when trying to develop unique or improved products and services.

This includes medical professional corporations. And the good news is, thanks to legislation that’s over ten years old, medical doctors can incorporate themselves and become just as eligible to make SR&ED claims as any corporation.

Medical research and development in a wide range of scientific activities qualifies for SR&ED funds:

Companies that fit this profile include:

  • Treatment protocol and therapy development.
  • Clinical trials for devices and drugs.
  • Medical device development and invention.
  • Fundamental science.

However, there are compelling reasons to call upon SRED Unlimited‘s years of experience when embarking on a SR&ED claim in this field. As in all claimable sectors, the SR&ED eligibility requirements can appear vague at times, or you might be unsure of what’s claimable.

Medical science also presents unique challenges compared to some sectors. Incorporated doctors could be performing research in partnership with universities or hospitals, and it becomes convoluted who can take credit for what, or how much can be claimed when a project is already receiving grants.

SRED Unlimited can help to clarify many of the questions you have about SR&ED claim eligibility, intellectual property, and what percentage of costs can be claimed.

Remember, medical research and development includes dentistry/dental surgery and aesthetic medicine. These are constantly evolving fields of research that can require a systematic approach to determine if a process improvement or a newly invented appliance/implant is safe to use, has the intended effect, and is feasible from a cost perspective.

  • We have been using SRED Unlimited for 5 years at Addictive Mobility. SRED Unlimited greatly simplified the application process for us. From data collection, recorded interviews and technical write ups, our SRED claims are always done on time and are well documented and easily defendable. I have already recommended SRED Unlimited to other companies.

  • “I found that other SRED consultants did not understand the technology intricacies of our products, and left the bulk of the technical work to my staff to complete. SRED Unlimited has shown a strong aptitude for determining where the technical uncertainties are and how they apply to SRED eligibility – without impacting my development team. They accurately assessed the scope and difficulty of our R&D projects with a few meetings – and without requiring that my staff do all the work first.“

In addition, he works tirelessly on researching and analyzing potential SR&ED projects. When an audit occurred, SRED Unlimited did not leave us to fend for ourselves, and successfully led us through the audit”

  • “We have been working with SRED Unlimited and Dmitry Brusilovsky for the past 7 years. He has guided us through our first claim, our first audit and really helped us understand the process of uncovering all of our SRED type projects. We have pure research projects, research projects with the aim of commercializing new product lines and research projects aimed at improving our process. And each and every project is dealt with in a thoughtful step wise approach to maximize our refund. Dmitry has shown a unique ability to grasp the underlying core of the research to help keep our narratives on track. It is hard to admit but when we were first contacted by Dmitry to let him help us prepare our SRED claim we were somewhat reluctant. Needless to say we would highly recommend his company to anyone. You have nothing to lose.”

We were a small 3-person tech startup back then when Dmitry took us as a client. He simplified the mystery of SR&ED and helped us with keeping clean records that eventually allowed us to focus on building our product instead of worrying about tax filing and writing reports. I would recommend Dmitry to any hi-tech company any minute.”

  • “After working with other SR&ED consultants, I found the team of Dmitry and John to be much easier and more pleasant to work with. We have recently been using SRED Unlimited exclusively, and right from the outset, we noticed they excelled at applying themselves and managed to assist us better than the others. John is always available to offer advice and he usually seems available to lend a guiding hand and keep us on track. Trying to run a business and file an SR&ED claim on your own is not always easy. However, it’s less overwhelming when you have the right consultants to guide you through the process. Their technical writing skills are professional, accurate and lend a smooth, professional feel to the project description. I would not hesitate in recommending SRED Unlimited’s services to anyone.”

  • I think it’s safe to say the SRED Unlimited has saved us thousands of dollars that we would have otherwise “left on the table” had we relied on our own internal resources. Dmitry worked extremely well with our teams, often putting the required documents together under tight timelines and often with only minimal support from our developers when they were busy meeting their own deadlines. The service has been very worthwhile and I would recommend SRED Unlimited to any software company looking to maximize their available credits.
