Tax credits from the Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED or SRED) program are intangible assets that can be difficult to value and monetize. Espresso Capital’s SREDLine and SREDLoan products allow companies to borrow against these future tax credit receivables and to deploy the resulting proceeds to fund growth investments sooner.
Recurring or subscription revenue model businesses are inherently more valuable than their one-time revenue counterparts, and each dollar invested in growing subscription revenues has a multiplier effect on enterprise value. However, amortizing these subscription revenues over a three- or five-year term has a significant negative cash flow impact on business in the early and growth stages.
Espresso Capital’s RecurringRevenueLine provides cash to offset the customer acquisition costs and keeps your cash working – growing your company.
In many Canadian provinces, special tax credit programs exist that are similar to, and that often supplement, the federal SRED program. These provinces recognize that multimedia will form much larger industries within their borders in the future, so they are encouraging digital media growth in various ways.
