Government incentives spanning the border

The Canadian and the US governments have long persuaded businesses to set up local operations by offering tax credits and other incentives. For businesses currently operating, or looking to operate, in these strong pro-growth countries there are many opportunities to maximize financial incentives related to a company’s research and development, facility, or operational investment.

Discover new ways to tap into government incentives that offer permanent tax savings and provide avenues to new capital by joining us for our third in a series of complimentary Canada-US tax webinars, Government incentives spanning the border. The program includes:

  • Benefits under Canada’s Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) Program and the US’s research and development (R&D) tax credits
  • Overview of the US Domestic Production Activities Deduction
  • Conducting a facility review of credits and incentives (cost segregation, repair and maintenance regulation considerations, IRC section 179 deduction)
  • Overview of Canada’s more than 200 incentives (credits for hiring new employees, training, purchasing new equipment, developing new technologies, or attending trade shows)
