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.

A corporation that disposed of a property used in research and development, or converted it to commercial use, may have to report a recapture of any New Brunswick research and development tax credit previously calculated on that property. Any recapture will create or increase New Brunswick tax otherwise payable.
