Information on SR&ED loans in Canada. Financing the refundable sr&ed tax credit delivers cash and working capital back to your business. Factoring sr&ed claims makes business sense - here's why!
Sr&ed Factoring , or in effect the financing of your Canadian SRED claim is a unique and innovation method of financing your tax credit .
For many Canadian business owners and financial managers the amount that their company has invested in research and development of innovative products and services represents a significant amount of their budgets.
Naturally Canadian business appreciates the amount of funds that the Canadian government refunds as non-repayable cash grant for your firms investment into product and technology advancement.
When we meet with customers who wish to finance, (factor) their SR&ED claim it’s all about timing. They want to get the immediate benefit of that cash flow and working capital back into their firm. The financing of the claim is the way to do that – it’s a case of immediately receiving the cash refund for your claim as opposed to having to wait anywhere from several months to a year to get the refund . And if your firm is filing a SrEd claim for the allowable period of two years prior well that cash flow and working capital has now doubled and provides a significant amount of cash flow if you finance the claim today.
As we have stated the whole scenario of financing a Sr&Ed Tax credit is essentially the process of factoring, or ‘discounting the claim ‘. We would point out that the whole process is applicable to film tax credits also, which a growing and robust industry is given that the government has heightened its grants in many areas of film tax credit financing.
So whats involved in monetizing your SR&ED claim? And perhaps as important, what amount of funds can you get today for the claim. We have stated the claim is discounted or factored - business factor because they need immediate access to cash when current assets such as accounts receivable cannot provide cash flow in a manner that allows your firm to have the working capital it needs. In some cases the factoring of receivables or a SR&ED claim may be one options for cash flow generation, however in a great deal of the cases it in fact is the only option .
That is because Canadian banks are reluctant to finance SR&ED claims because of the partial uncertainty in the final approval of the claim, and the reality is that many Canadian small and medium companies currently are challenged in obtaining all the business financing they need.
How much can I get? Is the typical question asked by Canadian business when financing their SR&ED claim? The answer is typically 70% now, and generally financing is structured along the lines of no principal or interest payments on the SRED loan financing until the government approves and funds the claim. At that point your firm gets the additional 30% of the claim, less financing costs associated with the claim which vary based on size of claim, overall financial situation of your firm, etc.
We want to clearly point out that no company should be deterred from financing a claim because they are in a pre- revenue state, or if they have other financial problems or challenges, as the essential security of your SR&ED itself is the prime collateral for the financing.
