The Advantages of Easly Advances
Reinvest Easly Advances into Additional SR&ED Eligible Work and Increase Your Refund
Some companies use their Easly Advances to fund more SR&ED-eligible work. Doing so increases the amount of SR&ED tax credits they accrue, which generates a larger refund from the CRA. This strategy is a great way for companies to boost their R&D investment while increasing their refund by as much as four times the cost of capital!
Take a look at our Boost Your R&D Budget blog post for more on this.
Fund Existing SR&ED Projects
Receiving Easly Advances quarterly is a great way to fund ongoing operations. For example, you can fund up to 33% of your annual R&D budget in your first year using Easly Advances, freeing up operating budget while retaining equity. There are no costs throughout the year; repayment is made directly from the SR&ED refund. This keeps the whole process cash flow positive to your business.
