Need to Re-Energize Tax Based Support for Innovation, says CATAAlliance in Open Letter to Federal MPs

Federal MPs
Dear Federal MPs

Re: Need to Re-Energize Tax Based Support for Innovation, says CATAAlliance

We would like to recognize your leadership in helping Reset proposed government tax policies and legislation. As you can see below, there are other opportunities for Reset:

CRA’s management made changes to the SR&ED interpretive and management practices without proper due diligence and consultation with impacted groups and apparently not with the Government itself. As a result, we have lost much of the impact and benefits of this innovation incentive program…And, tax based reform needs to be holistically applied against a genuine Plan to advance Canada’s innovation and competitiveness rankings.

Speaking on behalf of the CATA Innovation Leadership Council, can we again count on your leadership support in restoring this most important tax based innovation incentive.
