SR&ED Tax Credits

How confident are you that you are receiving every $ of SR&ED tax credit you deserve? For over 30 years, RDP Associates has been providing SR&ED tax credit services to thousands of Canadian businesses. We continue to build on our vast experience to improve our services and results. Our flagship SR&ED platform is Innovation Connection Program (ICP), which connects innovation with your bottom line. ICP ensures that you receive every $ you deserve. This platform is designed with the objective of maximizing your SR&ED claim while minimizing your staff time.
Canadian businesses engage RDP because they see the value in taking advantage of RDP’s proven SR&ED claim process. When compared to the competition or preparing SR&ED claims in-house, RDP’s proven process is more cost efficient than any other option. Our process gives our clients peace of mind that RDP is taking care of their SR&ED claim while they take care of their day to day operations. In addition, our clients are confident that every $ of SR&ED tax credit that they are entitled to is received.

Government Grants

Every year, the Government of Canada provides nearly $29 billion in grants and incentives to Canadian businesses across the country. Most businesses we speak to do not have the time to determine which grants are relevant to their business, let alone going through the process of applying for them. Therefore, they choose to hire RDP. We take over this function by identifying all relevant grants, preparing the grant application, handling all questions and queries raised by grant programs, and filing for grant claim reports to receive funding once approved.

There are grants for innovation/R&D, hiring and training, accessing foreign markets, and business expansion. Funding for grant programs ranges from a few thousand dollars to millions of dollars. As a first step, RDP offers a short and free introductory call in which we identify the right and relevant grants for your business. Don’t hesitate to contact us to learn more about our grant services.
