Government Grants

If you are planning projects in the areas of hiring, training, research and development, business growth, capital expenditures or green initiatives, funding is available from both the federal and provincial governments.  Unlike tax credits, businesses are required to apply before incurring costs and need to pre-qualify to receive funding. The challenge for most businesses lies in knowing which grant programs are available to them and how to best structure their applications for success. This is where our expertise comes in; as the largest government funding firm globally, we support your growth and innovation by helping you access these lucrative grants to subsidize your future planned investments.

SR&ED Tax Credits

Our thorough understanding of Canadian tax credits has always been one of the main drivers of our success. We are committed to adding value to your research and innovation investments by ensuring that your SR&ED claims are fully supported and maximized. We conduct a comprehensive review to identify all eligible activities, beyond only obvious R&D activities. Our proven SR&ED management services boast a 98.5% claim acceptance rate and are delivered by technical and financial experts from all industries. Our experts have been processing claims for our clients for decades and know how to make your SR&ED journey a successful one.

SR&ED Express Tax Credits

We are the first consulting firm in Canada to launch a SR&ED Express Service focused on helping early-stage companies and start-ups fund their innovation and growth through this tax credit program.

Our streamlined 3-day claim delivery process guarantees a claim is completed and delivered by the end of the third day. With our structured approach, we assign a senior member of our consulting team with many years of SR&ED experience, ensuring your claim is well-represented, properly documented and defendable.

Unlike other firms, Ayming deploys a combined funding strategy. Companies recognize that having the same firm handle their SR&ED claims and grant applications ensures there is no double-dipping of expenditures and there is consistency on how projects are presented to the different government agencies. This results in a much higher return for our clients. 

Cost Optimization

We make sense of your indirect expenses to uncover areas of savings. Starting with a detailed mapping of your usage and expenditures, we conduct an in-depth analysis to identify errors based on our database of market rates. Many of our clients have obtained savings of up to 50% following pricing negotiations and plan revisions. Even clients already locked into long-term contracts were still able to obtain additional savings of 15% – 20% due to our proven expertise. We focus mainly on the following categories: Telecom Cost Optimization, Car Fleet Optimization, Logistics & Freight Optimization, and Insurance Optimization.

Sales Tax Recovery

Companies conducting a high volume of multifaceted transactions involving multiple vendors can overlook substantial disbursements, which over time can have an impact on the bottom line. Without regular monitoring and increased awareness of where and how over-payments can occur, the combination of these elements creates room for further incorrect sales tax capturing, leading to frequent errors and ultimately, lost profits.  As part of our Sales Tax Recovery services, we conduct a comprehensive and exhaustive review of all Canadian sales taxes (GST/HST/QST) and provincial sales taxes. We identify any tax recovery opportunities and maximize those dollars with our industry knowledge, expertise, and proprietary tools.
