TSGI Outclasses Competition in Side-by-Side Comparison
I was very concerned about selecting the right SR&ED consultancy for our corporation. Our financial affairs were complicated and our technical groups were 100% engaged in our R&D projects. To ensure we made the best decision we ran a side-by-side comparison between TSGI and a Big-4 accounting firm. Both firms were given an equivalent amount of work and the same operational parameters. By the end of the test it was clear that TSGI had outperformed in every category. Their project management, stakeholder communication, SR&ED expertise, and understanding of how SR&ED impacted our other tax considerations were all clearly superior. We have now worked with TSGI on more than four tax years and are fully satisfied that we made the right decision.

TSGI Is Top Recommendation From International E&P Co.
I have had the opportunity to work with both TSGI and two other major SR&ED service providers – without question TSGI is the firm I would recommend first to other companies. Their staff met all of my expectations for professionalism, reliability, and proactive service, and I appreciated that they integrated themselves into our organization to minimize the effort required on our part. I was also fully satisfied that they had the financial and technical expertise to handle our very sophisticated corporate situation. I believe that TSGI delivers excellent value and highly recommend their service to other companies.

TSGI Consistently Outperforms JV Partner’s Big-4 Accounting Firm
We are proud of our reputation for achieving great results while controlling costs. In TSGI, we have found a SR&ED consultant that matches our company. Their no nonsense style, uncommon pro-activity, and dedication to their clients’ best interests are refreshing. Their expert team has successfully guided our company’s complex research claims through what is often a very challenging CRA environment. We appreciate TSGI’s initiative and professionalism and have observed instances where they have succeeded with projects that our joint venture partners failed to claim. These accomplishments have contributed significant benefits to our bottom line and speak to the superiority of TSGI’s capabilities.”

TSGI Earns Commendation as Finest Consultants
TSGI is the finest consulting organization, of any type, that I have worked with in my professional career. Not only are their people experts in their fields, but they are responsive, organized, pragmatic, effective, and personable. I cannot recommend this firm highly enough!

Switching to TSGI Positive in Every Way
Our company is delighted to provide a reference for TSGI as a SR&ED service provider. We hired TSGI out of dissatisfaction with our previous consultant and we have never looked back. The superiority of their tax expertise had an immediate and positive impact on our claims, and their dedication to providing the best customer service has helped our technical team stay focused and undistracted. The move to TSGI has been positive in every way and we encourage other companies to make the same choice.

TSGI Earns the Confidence and Cooperation from Client Personnel
… has engaged TSGI to work with us on our SRED claim for a number of years. We have formed a great working relationship with their team. They are professional and knowledgeable and have gained the respect of our scientists and engineers. They have also been very proactive in helping us structure our projects to ensure we submit a successful SRED claim. Through years of experience and expertise they understand the fine points of SRED and are very responsive in answering our questions. I would recommend them to any of my colleagues in Calgary, and I have.

TSGI Service Saves Time and Surpasses Expectations
As a rapidly expanding startup company, our personnel face tight deadlines and a serious shortage of time. By hiring TSGI we have been able to both maximize our SR&ED tax return and, at the same time, keep our R&D experts focused on our critical technology developments. Not only has TSGI’s SR&ED performance been excellent, better than what we would have achieved on our own, their turnkey solution has saved us significantly in terms of time and the avoidance of potential mistakes. Their people have consistently exceeded our expectations and have even gone out of their way to introduce us to important customers and provide coaching assistance to help prepare us for success. It has been a pleasure to work with a company that always delivers more than what they promise.

TSGI and SR&ED Are Part of Company’s Competitive Edge
TSGI opened our eyes to the potential of the SR&ED program to help our business succeed. We had not used the program before and, in a very short time, they brought us up to speed, prepared our first (successful) claim, and assisted us to set up streamlined processes for the future. Their people were fantastic to work with – professional, informed, and helpful in every aspect of their work. We now consider the SR&ED program and TSGI to be part of our competitive edge.

TSGI Undoes Past SR&ED Mistakes
Our company’s first experience with the SR&ED program was that it was time consuming and unpredictable. As a result, we hired TSGI to manage our claims and the outcome has been excellent. Their expert knowledge of the program completely turned our claim around and resulted in a 150% increase in ITCs for a prior year. Even more significantly, they have made it easy for our management and technical personnel to understand their roles and to work proactively to maximize our benefits from this program. We are extremely pleased to recommend TSGI to any company that conducts R&D.

TSGI Delivers Superb Value
We chose TSGI as our SR&ED service provider because of their top-level expertise and all-inclusive approach to claims. Their detailed understanding of the program, and what expenses could be claimed, ensured that we received all the benefits we deserved. Also, their initiative and guidance in assisting us to document our work proved invaluable when we were audited by the CRA. There is no question that TSGI’s comprehensive SR&ED method returned excellent value.

Long-Haul Partnership Approach Earns Trust
I have worked with TGSI for more than a decade and they have earned my trust and respect. They have consistently impressed me with their high level of professionalism and their dedication to our best interests over the long haul. I am frequently approached by other SR&ED service providers but am not interested in undoing what has been such a reliable and constructive relationship.

Multi-National Corporation Finds TSGI’s Services Invaluable
When I assumed my role as product development manager for a large multi-national corporation, we had three years of outstanding SR&ED claims as well as a filing for the current year to accomplish. My team and I also had a mountain of operational development work ahead of us. The only way to solve the problem was to bring in outside help and we chose TSGI. From day 1 their staff immersed themselves in our business to create a compelling picture of the SR&ED we were conducting in our daily lives. They understood what the CRA’s staff was looking for and we were eventually able to recover the vast majority of credits owed to us. TSGI’s efforts were invaluable to our company. So invaluable, in fact, that its team of science and finance advisors became a part of our operational processes. This was a tremendous burden lifted off our shoulders and it allowed us to more confidently proceed with our development activities and future submissions to the CRA. I highly recommend TSGI as a SR&ED solution.

TSGI’s Dedication Keeps Researchers Focused on Technology Development
We are pleased to confirm that TSGI has managed our firm’s SR&ED claims for the past several years. During this time, their people have worked hard to ensure that we maximize our tax credits with the minimum disruption to our busy technical group. Their methods and efforts were also instrumental helping our company to succeed during a detailed review by the CRA. Working with TSGI has been both a pleasure and a tremendous financial benefit to our company.
President, Software Firm
TSGI Puts Client’s Interests First
We found the TSGI team to be very professional, thorough, tenacious but always considerate. They always put our company and our people first even though it meant more work for them. They were so knowledgeable about the SRED program that they had anticipated when, where, and how issues could arise in our claim and either prepared our team or prepared themselves to properly respond.

TSGI’s Fills Gaps Missed by Other SR&ED Advisors
Our company had a record of more than 3 years of success with the SR&ED program before we switched service providers and engaged TSGI to manage our claims. Despite our previous positive history, we noticed immediate and significant benefits in working with this company. Their holistic approach, integrating and tracking both financial and technical aspects of the claim from start to finish, resulted in tax savings that more than covered the entire cost of their fees. I would unreservedly recommend TSGI’s services to any company.
President, Environmental Consulting Industry
SR&ED and TSGI are Key R&D Performance Enhancers
The SR&ED program has significantly impacted our business by allowing us to engage additional staff and to refocus our efforts on our research work. This, in turn, has enabled us to achieve first-in-industry capabilities that have enhanced our ability to serve our customers and our competitiveness. TSGI’s role in our SR&ED success has been pivotal. As a small firm we could not possibly devote the time and attention to SR&ED that they have been able to, nor do we have the expertise to achieve their results. For us, the SR&ED program is a crucial performance enhancer and outsourcing the management of it to TSGI is the ideal solution.

TSGI Brings Confidence and Discipline to SR&ED Claims
Every tech start up has to manage their two most critical resources, their time and their cash, with the utmost care. The SR&ED program is a key component of our funding equation, and there is no question that TSGI is a key component of our SR&ED strategy. Their profound understanding of the program gives us the confidence we need to budget prospectively and ensures that we receive our full share of tax credits. Importantly, they achieve these benefits without wasting our time. Their proven claim strategies and documentation methods help us stay on top of SR&ED requirements, and reduce the time needed to file solid claims. We highly recommend the TSGI professionals to help emerging companies get the most from their SR&ED entitlements.
