R&D and government incentives


Enhancing our R&D Tax services 

Deloitte has acquired Paramount Refund Management, a boutique provider of R&D Tax services in Langley, British Columbia. The acquisition expands our local R&D team and enhances our ability to offer the complete range of tax services to clients in the Lower Mainland region.

R&D and government incentivesMany countries offer generous grants, credits and incentives in areas such as the digital economy, energy efficiency, environment, globalization, innovation, sustainability and training. In particular, Canada offers some of the world’s richest, most broadly applicable research & development (R&D) tax incentives—worth up to 82% of the development costs for new or improved products and/or processes. All technology-based companies developing new or improved technology have a basis for an R&D claim, as do all manufacturing-based companies developing or improving products or processes.

With practitioners who are fluently trilingual in engineering, tax and “CRA”, we have assisted thousands of public and private companies to realize a sizable R&D tax credit. It’s a no-risk proposition: only a few hours of time with your senior technical people can lead to more opportunities than you previously imagined.

Our services include: 

Research & development claims preparation 

Identifying eligible R&D activities and preparing robust supporting documentation is often unfamiliar territory or you may not have the resources to complete the paperwork required to file a claim. Deloitte can assist with the whole process from scoping through document preparation and submission. Deloitte combines deep tax technical expertise with highly experienced scientists and engineers to help ensure all aspects of an incentive claim are fully understood and considered. We utilize technology-based solutions worldwide to ensure a smooth process with increased transparency and compliance with all regulatory changes.
