Innovation can take many different forms: process innovation, product innovation and organizational innovation. It is one of the main driving forces behind business competitiveness because it helps improve productivity, reduce costs, boost competitiveness and increase sales.
Innovation also helps you stand out from your competitors and to better respond to the expectations and needs of your clients. In the long-term, innovating is the best way to help your business grow.
In most cases, innovation is planned. You rely on research budgets, R&D staff and patents that have been or are about to be filed. Unfortunately, innovation is sometimes unstructured, and managers sometimes don’t know that they are entitled to a tax credit for scientific research and experimental development (SR & ED).

“Tax credits and industrial research programs are an important source of funding for R&D projects. Thus, by identifying the different programs, a manufacturing, technology or food processing company can get back up to 80% of its SR & ED expenditures. Contact our team for more information.”
