“Owing to the special nature of the R&D projects we undertake, we write the project descriptions required for the claim report ourselves. However, even though our activities clearly satisfy Canada Revenue Agency criteria, we struggle to present and explain our research and development work in a way that is understandable to a third party. One way Leyton adds value is through its remarkable ability to identify the key points of our claim and support them in language that is concise and convincing and demonstrates that we meet the program eligibility criteria.”
“Because of the nature of our work, we are engaged in numerous R&D activities. When we need to report to government groups, we want the consultant advising us to be attentive to our needs and provide the best possible solution in light of our preferences in the matter.
For us, this means that the consultant must be involved with us in finalizing the research report and preparing accounts for the claim. Leyton’s consultant is always professional with us, gives excellent counsel, is available to us and accommodates the occasionally tight deadlines we impose! Furthermore, the firm always lets us know when CRA procedures, directives, or criteria change.”
“Many other firms specialized in this area solicit our business, but for five years now we have chosen to put our trust in Leyton. Our objective is not to secure the most tax credits at any cost but instead to submit an unassailable claim. We view tax credits not as a way to finance our company’s business but as financial assistance that facilitates technological knowledge and advances bearing on our research and development work.
To date, we have been audited twice. In each case the preparation and support we received from our Leyton consultant was exactly what was needed. The long-standing relationship we have with Leyton gives us a sense of security and peace of mind. At the end of each of these audits, we received 100% of the amounts we applied for.”
