SR&ED for the TECHNOLOGY SECTOR
THE ARCK ADVANTAGE | SRED CLAIMS THROUGH FORENSIC ANALYSIS
Successful technology organizations are relentless in their quest to deliver cutting edge technology. To achieve their goals and systematically overcome technological obstacles, organizations are forced to draw on experimentation and scientific analysis. Efforts to improve the reliability, security and general functionality of products are often only made possible through investments in these areas.
A considerable portion of the costs associated with these activities qualify for tax credits or cash refunds under the Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) Program. Despite this technology companies of all sizes face several misconceptions about SR&ED eligible work. Many organizations have been discouraged from participating or have simply failed to claim qualified work. At ARCK we help eligible information technology companies uncover, claim and maximize their SR&ED tax credits.
