Support for companies of all sizes.
Often times, early-stage companies are unable to peak the interest of experts that can successfully guide them through all available funding opportunities that are critical to their growth.
At Ayming, we see things differently. We believe that early-stage companies need and deserve proper support to ensure that they can grow and innovate in a non-dilutive manner. Our SR&ED Express offer is strategically focused on helping companies of any size leverage lucrative government funding.
An Express Claim, with a Plan for Success
We recognize that many smaller companies who are claiming SR&ED for the first time are at a high likelihood of being audited by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), especially after their first 2 years of claims have gone through the First Time Claimants Advisory Service (FTCAS). The financial and technical audits carried out in the third year are largely due to the CRA ensuring compliance among new applicants.
During this time, as you begin to navigate the program and criteria, it is important that you have strong representation and extensive expertise to support you. Our Express claim offer includes a 3-year action plan for this very reason – we’re here to not only help you get a fast SR&ED claim in days, but also support you for the following 3 years by building a strong, defendable and compliant SR&ED process for your business. Our goal is to set you up to use the SR&ED program as a core funding strategy for the years to come.
A claim can done within days, and a 3-year action plan is designed with our clients in mind. We know the process can be overwhelming and difficult to navigate, so our experts are here to support you every step of the way.
A Combined Funding Strategy
We set ourselves apart from any other consulting firm in Canada, as we have the ability to increase your overall government funding by also preparing you to apply for lucrative federal and provincial grants in the areas of hiring, training, R&D, capital purchases, clean technology and export growth.
This combined strategy of SR&ED and grants often results in significantly increased funding for our clients. Several early-stage companies don’t realize that they pre-qualify to claim R&D grants and see value in working with Ayming because we can assist with a comprehensive offer on both SR&ED and grant funding.
Our clients realize that having one firm handle their SR&ED and grant applications ensures that there is consistency on how the R&D projects are being presented and positioned to the different government agencies, and that there is also no duplicating of expenditures. The end result of this strategy ensures that our clients subsidize a much higher chunk of their R&D and technical costs versus just claiming SR&ED alone.
Ayming’s highly experienced delivery teams boast over 200+ years of combined SR&ED experience and over 50+ years of combined grants experience, meaning you partner with true subject matter experts who are invested in your success.

- Dealing with a short stub year,
