CATA SR&ED Tax Credits 2020 Survey: Update for COVID-19

Input requested by Tuesday 24 March for consultations with CRA

The Canadian Advanced Technology Alliance has a long history with SR&ED and remain actively engaged with CRA. We have been gathering recent experiences, data and guidance on the SR&ED program, views on the recent budgetary changes to SR&ED credits, and on CRA’s efforts to improve their delivery of the incentives.

Since the COVID-19 health, economic and liquidity crisis we have received a flood of new concerns, including the efficiency of the program under a presumed remote work environment.

Action Item:
Please complete this survey at so we can assure our communication with CRA includes your current issues and suggestions. We invite you to also provide recommendations on how other programs could support your business during this time.

Stay Strong,

Suzanne Grant
CEO, CATAAlliance
