R&D Partners-Helps Educate, Train, And Help Technology Entrepreneurs Maximize Tax Credit And Grant Claims

R&D Partners was started in 2002 by two successful technology entrepreneurs – Mike Lee and Debbie Frail – who both had strong engineering and funding experience. They began advising and assisting local early-stage technology startups and quickly realized that due to the notoriously unclear guidelines on government websites, entrepreneurs oftentimes disregarded the government as a legitimate source of non-dilutive funding.

It became clear that there was an alarming need to educate, train, and help technology entrepreneurs maximize tax credit and grant claims while simplifying their life. With time, they brought on additional professional engineers, scientists, and tax professionals and began working with larger technology companies across Canada.

Today, R&D Partners has successfully claimed over $200 million in R&D tax credits and other government funding for their clients. They work with startups, leading venture-backed companies, growing tech firms, and well-known multinationals. They have received numerous awards for their work and have demonstrated a solid track record in helping their clients grow.

With a thorough understanding of R&D tax rulings and emerging technologies like artificial intelligence, blockchain, robotics, cybersecurity, internet of things, and financial technology; they have become a leading R&D tax credit and government funding advisory firm in Canada.

As a global leader in AI, Montreal has seen a spike in foreign corporations setting up research labs to collaborate with local academia and industry. R&D Partners has taken a proactive role in helping these foreign corporations take advantage of government incentives.

‘’Grants and tax credits represent billions of dollars and are simply the best source of funding in Canada. Important to note that many tax credits are refundable expenditure credits not dependent on taxes payable. As an example, a pre-revenue company doing eligible R&D can receive a refund for up to 74% of salaries in Montreal.’’
