The Quebec Technology Association (AQT) announces an additional $20 million to the AQT Tax Credit Fund. Managed by FINALTA CAPITAL, the fund is dedicated to support AQT’s SME members. The Fund converts your tax credits and grants into a major competitive advantage through its financing terms unique among financial and government institutions, including expenditure pre-financing, access to 50% more cash and a financial close in some 15 business days.
The Fund reduces the refund waiting times for companies eligible for tax credit programs in the following areas: scientific research and experimental development (SR&ED), e-business development (TCEB) and the production of multimedia titles. Created in late 2014, the fund has already paid out over $30 million to AQT members, driving their technologies to market faster and speeding up their business valuation.
FINALTA CAPITAL issues 25% of your annual loan on the first day of each quarter in anticipation of budgeted expenditures, which is three to six months earlier than other financial institutions.
FINALTA CAPITAL gives higher value to tax credits and longer overlaps on annual loans. This works out to about 50% more cash than with other financial institutions.
« The tax credit fund is a major asset for our association, a tool to support and develop SMEs working in information and communication technology. The delays they face can take months, forcing them to wait rather than move into action. »
