SR&ED Claims Preparation

Black Pepper Group helps Canadian business owners recover money in the form of refundable tax credits from the Federal and Provincial governments.    We do most of our work with the Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Tax Credit.  

A typical engagement with us can help your company recover from $50,000 to $150,000 depending mostly on your labour costs   This money is often in your bank account less than 200 days after you start working with us.   

Think of us as investigative journalists.    Our job involves discovering where you are building or creating things that go beyond what could be considered common in your industry.   We can work with you to properly structure, describe and account for the costs of the work in a way that will get you the maximum benefit possible.  

If you're trying to make your product faster, stronger or better in a quantifiable way, we use the right words and concepts to ensure you are eligible for a significant tax refund.  Our job is to get the story right and keep it clear and approachable. Canada Revenue Agency needs to be convinced that technical obstacles, uncertainties, or significant challenges had to be overcome along the way.

We identify the essence, scale and cost of your work and carefully craft an argument that explains its significance.
