Join us for a comprehensive presentation on SR&ED credits. During this two hour seminar our speakers will take you through the planning process of applying for a SR&ED Tax Credit, how the 2012 Federal Budget will impact SR&ED claims, and steps you can take to improve your chances of success.

Occasionally, SR&ED claims are rejected for a variety of reasons. We’ll also discuss what to do if the claim is rejected, determine if the CRA is has erred in reviewing the claim, and how to use expert witnesses to support your claim.

The seminar is ideally suited for business owners, executives including Chief Financial Officers and Vice-Presidents of Finance, Controllers and other in-house accounting department staff, in-house counsel, in-house tax department staff, and engineers involved with SR&ED.

For those wishing to attend from outside of Winnipeg, the seminar will be simultaneously broadcast via webinar.
