My guide to the technical aspects of the SR&ED program - Guide to SR&ED for engineers - is written primarily for people who perform or manage R&D, who are responsible for identifying work that meets the criteria for SR&ED, and who may be called on to justify a SR&ED claim to CRA technical reviewers.
While a great deal of information is available on the financial aspects of the SR&ED program, both from CRA and from non-government sources, there is comparatively little guidance on technical matters. CRA’s 19 papers on financial and financial/technical topics are detailed and precise; in contrast the single 12-page paper on eligibility policy is a high-level document that covers the topic in much less detail than the 28 or so documents that it replaces. It does not provide what program users need - specific, detailed advice on what to claim and how to claim it
Guide to SR&ED for engineers fills this gap. In direct, informal language, it covers the technical aspects of the SR&ED program in detail, from identifying work that meets the criteria through the claiming and review processes.
