Changes to Alberta’s SR&ED Prescribed Proxy Amounts (Posted May 30, 2013)

By | Uncategorized

As has been speculated over the past several months, the Alberta Tax and Revenue Association (TRA) has gone forward with an erosion of the provincial SR&ED proxy amounts, parallel to the Federal proxy reduction:

  • 65% on salaries associated with SR&ED work done prior to 2013;
  • 60% on salaries associated with SR&ED work done January 1, 2013 – December 31, 2013;
  • 55% on salaries associated with SR&ED work done after 2013


Bill 23 received Royal Assent May 27, 2013, but the changes to the proxy amounts (Section 26.6) are retroactive to January 1, 2013.
