Kreston GTA has a focus on growth and start-up stage entities, and our clients are entrepreneurs and operate businesses across most business sectors. Our support of these businesses is often form start-up, through their growth stage to the sale or transition to future generations. We also assist with large international corporations doing business in Canada by servicing their branches or subsidiaries.
Kreston GTA has a unique understanding of early and growth stage startups that require a solid strategy and roadmap to scale their business. We routinely service entities from startup, through their growth phase, to merger or sale. We advise at every stage of your business, from funding growth, ensuring an efficient accounting system, designing of an effective corporate structure, maximizing the use of government grants and tax credits, to delivery of financial information required to grow your business.
Many of our clients are technology startups or research and development driven. An important component in strategic financial and tax planning of such startups is the effective use of available tax credits and other government programs. The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) program is a federal tax incentive program, administered by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), that encourages Canadian businesses in all sectors and of all sizes to conduct research and development (R&D) in Canada. It is the largest single source of federal government support for industrial R&D. The SR&ED program gives claimants cash refunds and/or tax credits for their expenditures on eligible R&D work done in Canada. Kreston GTA provides clients with expert tax and financial assistance while working with our team of engineers, providing the necessary technical assistance in the identification, tracking and support of eligible SR&ED projects.
