Under an initiative known as “Process Review” the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) has engaged Canadian corporations to transform the method used to prepare and audit SR&ED claims from the traditional project based audits to audits that focus on how claims are prepared.

"Process Review" is a CRA audit of the claimant's SR&ED claims preparation process as realized through their SR&ED system. With the participation of ScienceTree, clients engage to complete a Process Review Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the CRA, and provincial tax authorities to launch SR&ED Process Review.

Our Process services include;

  • Transition to Process Review
