SR & ED (SR ED) factoring is a viable consideration for any Canadian company that files SR ED claims and is looking for additional working capital. Not all Canadian business owners and financial managers are aware that SR ED claims can be monetized (financed!).
For an overview of SR ED financing it’s important for us to validate some of the basics -
- Have you filed a SR ED CLAIM?
- How much was the dollar amount of the claim
- Who prepared the claim?
- What amount of cash or working capital do you need in conjunction with the claim filed?
If you are looking for cash flow with respect to your Canadian SR ED claim you either have working capital financing in place now with your bank or finance firm (a factoring company perhaps) or your firm is self financing and you are looking for the SR ED to supplement additional cash flow.
Canadian business owners and financial managers are aware that when they finance their receivables and inventory these ' current assets ' are' margined ‘. By margining we of course mean the amount of funds you can borrow against these assets.
In SR ED financing you are generally financed 70% of your claim, and that is the combined total of the Federal and Provincial claim.
So if you have filed a SR ED claim, of say, for example, $ 350.000.oo you are eligible for 70% of that amount, or 245,000.00
Funds can be advanced as soon as you have filed the claim, but not before. Naturally it is somewhat important to ensure your claim was filed by a qualified party - usually an accounting firm or consultant. It's these consultants that are in the field daily on the program, wresting with all sorts of changes around Form 4088! ... Defining and backing up your project.
