Great evening we had discussing the many Government programs out there at both the provincial and Federal levels that your tech business can source.
Richard Kun from RDP and John Dow from SB Partners shared the Top 10 Government tax credits, incentives and alternative sources of funding for you business. The audience learned about SRED, SR&ED, OIDMTC, IRAP, DTAAP and some of the employment and export grants. They alsoe learned how to recover costs in multiple areas of your business - marketing, development - as well as how to use some of these programs to leverage additional sources of government funding.
