« What distinguishes NovaFisc from our previous consultants is their capacity to truly understand what we do. They do not work from an office on the 20th floor. In fact, they put their work boots on and walk through the plant to take a first-hand account of our SR&ED activities. It makes all the difference.”

On-Site Analysis + Evaluation
Too many tax credit specialists rely on second-hand information or simple phone calls to determine eligible scientific research and experimental development (SR&ED). They tend to see things in black and white. But identifying qualifying activities is more of an art form than a science. Indeed, it has a lot to do with taking advantage of grey areas. And not taking everything at face value… At NovaFisc, we provide you with a quick, thorough and accurate read of your tax credit opportunities.


Knowing what to look for
Your people know every facet of your research and development operations. But they are so focused on the business of innovating that they don’t necessarily see how certain activities relate to qualifying criteria for SR&ED tax credits. At NovaFisc, we make it our business to take that wider view to understand the issues, identify eligible activities and build sound tax credit claims. Our keen sense of what constitutes a tax credit and our ongoing curiosity are the keys to our success.

 

Knowing where to look for it
We don’t wait for information to come to us. In fact, NovaFisc experts make regular visits to your facilities to see for themselves how SR&ED is conducted, what developments are planned and how operations have evolved. This commitment is at the heart of our ability to identify every opportunity and exploit grey areas. Indeed, our extensive knowledge of the tax credit program gives us more freedom to interpret qualifying criteria and maximize tax relief for your organization.

Research + Structuring + Validation
When unsure, firms underclaim. They like to play it safe and avoid the added burden of extensive enquiries along with the risk of being challenged by tax authorities. Or they simply may have received poor advice on the extent of project eligibility. With NovaFisc, nothing is left to chance. Every potential SR&ED activity is assessed in order to see how it meets qualifying criteria. We base our strategies on solid data and compelling arguments.


Sharing the right informatioN
Many qualifying activities take place outside the traditional R&D department, so innovative companies may be eligible for tax relief in areas they never suspected. At NovaFisc, we look in every nook for ways to maximize your tax credit opportunities. But it takes more than good data, it also takes good partnerships. That is why we establish trust in all of our working relationships, with executives, engineers and finance people alike. We are always on the lookout for that nugget of information that will make all the difference.

 

Piecing it together
Tax credit claims are only as strong as the weakest link in the chain of arguments, so we only develop strategies we know we can defend. Every NovaFisc professional is driven to find meaningful figures and gather useful facts in order to support your tax credit claims. Furthermore, we use a fully integrated approach, so the right hand knows what the left hand is up to. Every team member shares our proven methodology and strives to deliver results.

Technical Descriptions + Financial Reports
To successfully manage thousands of projects on an annual basis, NovaFisc uses proven techniques that simplify and optimize the claims process. For instance, we focus on uncovering core data that directly supports our claims strategies and objectives, thereby reducing the need for client intervention. And we remain up‑to‑date on key tax credit information that allows us to capitalize on grey areas and, ultimately, maximize claim amounts.


Joining the dots
To successfully articulate a strategy for obtaining SR&ED tax relief, you need a thorough understanding of tax laws and of all the innovative aspects of a client’s projects and activities. With the invaluable input of our engineers, NovaFisc’s team of financial professionals combine all the required scientific and tax expertise, along with practical skills and industry knowledge, to develop incisive arguments geared to achieving superior results.

 

Creating the big picture
Come time to write up technical and financial reports, we consolidate information and build documents with the specific aim of defending those arguments before fiscal authorities. So our reports are prepared in a way that addresses their needs. But we do more than simply file a claim correctly. When clients are entitled to several tax credits, we develop our strategies and reports accordingly with the aim of maximizing tax savings for the current year and for the future.
