Grants

Canada is, perhaps, the most generous country when it comes to assisting innovative companies. Numerous programs exist, both at the federal and provincial level, to give subsidies, loans and financial assistance. In fact, there are so many that it can become impossible to find and identify those that are the most relevant.
Emergex SR&ED has acquired a solid experience in this matter and can accompany you in the selection process and help you attain the best possible return on investment by combining the most relevant programs.

More than just a service provider, we consider Emergex a valued partner. I would not hesitate to recommend Emergex to anyone who needs help to claim government tax incentives. Emergex even went as far as flying in their national SR&ED practice technology leader from Montreal to our offices in Hamilton to give a tailored SR&ED seminar to our entire technical team!

During the preparatory meeting and the audit thereafter, we have been privileged to observe and appreciate the professionalism of the Emergex team, both by the presentation they had prepared and by the explanations they put forward. The quality of a consultant in the field of R&D tax credits cannot be determined at the time the initial claim is made, but rather, through the efforts they undertake to deal with an inspection. Big thanks for your excellent work!

Serge Bonenfant, CEO, Qualicode

Emergex multidisciplinary team’s ongoing support, availability and exceptional responsiveness are part of the strengths that make them stand far above others in the market of SR&ED firms. Emergex SR&ED technology consultants understood very well the intricacies of Axon ID development projects. Throughout the year, Emergex guided us in order to better structure our processes, as well as our SR&ED and e-business claims. With Emergex tax and financial advisors’ excellent knowledge of the government assistance programs, we have substantially optimized and increased our tax credits.

Over the years, I have worked with several consultants from Emergex and I can say that they all have met our high expectations. Emergex Subsidies has always delivered the goods! I speak from experience, having worked with two other SR-ED firms before.I want to thank the technology advisor from Emergex for his guidance and his dedication during the preparation of our SR-ED claim. Because of this team effort, we were very well prepared the day of the technical inspection by Revenue Canada.

Allow me to tip my hat to Emergex for the tour de force that represents the technological description of our SR&ED projects, which I find quite frankly of outstanding quality, not to mention that I am especially impressed that you could do so much, in terms of both quantity and accuracy, based solely on our few hours of discussion!

Since the creation of IQware in 2003, we have retained the services of Emergex to help us structure our R&D department in order to maximize the benefits from government subsidy programs.

Emergex has prepared and supported us efficiently during and after the two technological and fiscal inspections by Revenue Canada. Their technology advisors have been able to guide us and to identify our eligible work.

This year I am looking to finance my tax credits in advance, and not only did Emergex introduce me to the right people, but every lender is very comforted by the fact that I’m working with Emergex. They have a reputation of working with solid companies and that reputation is a big benefit to all of their clients. There are so many things we need to manage closely as owners of a fast-growing startup. Emergex ensures that our SR&ED claim is NOT one of these things. Emergex handled the entire process from start to finish so professionally, I couldn’t be happier with their services. Thank you Emergex for being awesome!

Emergex showed us that even though it isn’t our primary activity, we too can claim tax credits for R&D projects in IT ! Thank you !

For the past five years, Emergex has been in charge of preparing our R&D and multimedia claims. This way, we save time and it gives us peace of mind. As software developers, we don’t always know how to approach this kind of thing or how to present our R&D activities in order to meet the requirements of the program….
