From independent accountants to global mega-management consultants like Ernst&Yonge and Price Waterhouse, there are plenty of SR&ED Consultants to choose from. So many that choosing the right partner is a problem in itself.
If you have a global business and would like to deal with a single partner for all of your tax filing needs, by all means, stick with the big four.
For most of Canada’s SME’s, there are a few good reasons to partner with us:
We focus solely on SR&ED and digital media tax credits. Over and over. We’re comfortable navigating the twists and turns in the winding claim process.
Comprised of PHDs and Masters in several disciplines and industries, our staff can appreciate what you’ve done and what it took to do it. We take a no-holds-barred approach to maximizing each and every claim.
To minimize friction for your team, we use a staged approach. Each stage is handled by a dedicated, specialized department. From technical interviews and financial analysis to submission and reviews with the CRA, we do all of the work.
We’re proud of our ISO certification. ISO 9001:2008 is the highest industry certification that ensures our processes align with the International Standard for Quality Management Systems.
It’s a pat on the back from a third party that matters. It lets us know that our focus on process, customer satisfaction, and continuous improvement is recognized. Learn more about ISO 9001:2008 Certification.
We’re committed to providing your organization with long-term financial benefits, rather than short-term gains (though both work fine).
We provide education and post-claim guidance, so you understand the tax credit options available and we can propose actionable change to improve your claims without interrupting day-to-day operations.
Our fees are based only on the tax credits your company receives.
Tracking and documentation is the single responsibility of our clients that can make or break a SR&ED claim. A new technical guide for claimants and RTAs sets forth strict new requirements for documentation, evidence, and supporting arguments needed to support a SR&ED claim. Claimants who do not seriously consider the importance of documentation are at risk for claim denial, according to the CRA. BeneFACT will help establish a system for tracking and documentation that works for your organization. By creating a customized solution, we can improve the success rate of your claims.
BeneFACT’s job isn’t done when tax season has come and gone. We conduct regular check-ins to ensure your SR&ED activities, documentation procedures, and funding opportunities are being maximized to their full potential. We also consult with you in the early stages of a project to help align project planning with tax credits you may be eligible for. BeneFACT keeps thinking about your tax credit claims year-round, so you can focus on your business.
