Use this tool to determine if the research & development (R&D ) work you did has a probability of meeting the SR&ED requirements. Complete the questions for each project that you have undertaken.
The tool is intended for self-assessment and educational purposes only. Only the CRA can determine the eligibility of the projects and only after receiving a complete claim.
You should focus on the R&D work performed during the tax year for which you are planning to make a claim.
Please file a claim for each project that gets an affirmative result. To help you submit a complete claim we recommend that you review the Guide to Form T661 and take advantage of the services we offer prior to filing an SR&ED claim. Your SR&ED claim must be filed within 12 months of the filing due date of your income tax return.
If a project receives a negative result and the explanations given are not clear, please contact your local SR&ED representative for clarification or advice.
