Submission + - SR&ED – is it worth it? (

An anonymous reader writes: SR&ED (Scientific Research and Experimental Development) is the name of the largest, most generous and most important tax incentive program in Canada. The program has been around since the 80s, overhauled in the 90s, and firmly embedded in the income tax act and indeed the very fabric of the Canadian economy. Without it, Canada would see a swift exit of many international companies that set up shop here due to this very program that guarantees sizable tax credits in exchange for operating here and employing our citizens.

Thus spake the master programmer: "Time for you to leave." -- Geoffrey James, "The Tao of Programming"
