Half of startups don’t take full advantage of government funding

A recent study reveals that almost half of startups don’t take full advantage of available government funding such as Scientific Research & Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax credits and Industrial Research Assistance Program (IRAP), even though they allow companies to recuperate a large portion of the salaries invested in R&D. One of the reasons given for not applying to these programs is the fact that many entrepreneurs believe that they are too small to invest time and money in such an endeavor. However, with the help of experts like Emergex, it is possible for very small companies to apply to these tax credits and subsidies with an investment on only a few hours by the entrepreneur.
