New Brunswick research and development tax credit
You can claim this credit if you have a permanent establishment in New Brunswick and you made eligible expenditures for research and development to be carried out in New Brunswick.
The amount of the credit is equal to 15% of eligible expenditures.
The credit is fully refundable, but must first be applied against total taxes payable.
