It takes constant innovation to remain competitive in the printing industry. There are two ways that claimable research and development commonly happen:

  • Generic research and experimentation. This can include modifying ink formulas, printing on new substrates to expand the product line, and other experimental activities where the outcome is unknown/success is not guaranteed.
  • Special/custom orders requiring experimentation. This can be claimable whether or not the project was a commercial success, provided that it results in reusable new technological knowledge.

Of course, there could be other types of projects that qualify.

SRED Unlimited has many years of extensive experience with the printing industry. We have worked with companies that use different processes (ex: offset, web, flexo, digital, large format, screen, embroidery). We have also worked with finishing companies such as binderies and die cutting companies. Having successfully worked with so many different printing and finishing companies for so many years, we have accumulated substantial in-house expertise in the industry. SRED Unlimited can spot eligible projects that other consulting companies might give up on.

  • “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.” read more

  • “After working with several SR&ED consultants and getting no success in filing our claims, we became skeptical of going into this process again. Our perspective was totally changed after we accepted a proposal from SRED Unlimited. Not only did experts from SRED Unlimited help us to successfully file four claims, but they also showed in-depth understanding of our business (environmentally friendly offset printing production) and assisted us in supporting our environmental commitment. read more
