Understanding the recent changes to SR&ED

Mark Twain famously said in corresponding with an acquaintance, “If I had had more time, I would have written you a shorter letter”.

With that in mind, what will be the real impact of limiting the number of words to describe your SR&ED (Scientific Research and Experimental Development) projects? And what will be the impact to you and your organization of the most comprehensive changes in recent memory to SR&ED filings?

PricewaterhouseCoopers in Toronto is hosting a seminar on January 29th where senior members of their SR&ED group will discuss the implications of these recent changes on the preparation of your SR&ED claims and your claiming processes.

The seminar will highlight:

  • What the changes are (and what has not changed)
  • How to adapt to the changes
  • Transitioning from the old form to the new form
  • Old vs. new terminology

Anyone involved in the SR&ED claim process (financial staff and engineers) or R&D planning should attend.

The seminar will take place in King West Rooms 1& 2 at PricewaterhouseCoopers, 11th floor, 145 King Street West. Registration starts at 7:30am and the presentation and Q&A runs from 8:00am to 9:30am. Register by January 26th online or by contacting Simone Knott at simone.knott@ca.pwc.com.

UPDATE: The morning and early afternoon seminars are now full but an second afternoon event has been added. Registration is from 2:30pm to 3:00pm and the presentation and Q&A run from 3:00pm until 4:30pm.
