Our Team

AN EXPERIENCED TEAM

The ENTAX team brings big firm consulting experience to a boutique, client-centric firm with hands-on client experience with SR&ED claims in all sizes. Don't trust your SR&ED claim to inexperienced, fly-by-night, or self-taught practitioners. We are not a "one man shop" or a large anonymous firm. We pride ourselves on the quality of the people we work with and the experience we bring to our clients.

As SR&ED experienced practitioners, we have been formally trained in being high-quality SR&ED consultants and have dealt with claims of all sizes - from large, publicly traded multinational corporations to early stage start ups. Our team consists of the following roles: Project Managers, Sr. Technology Consultants, Technical Writers, Project Coordinators and Financial Accountants.

ENTAX is one of the most honest and reliable companies we have ever worked with. Not only they charge a very reasonable fee, but they also provide an excellent job of getting you the maximum refund, and at the same time keeping the claim compatible with CRA rules.
Kamyar Asadibeiky - CEO, President & Founder, MACHOOL TECHNOLOGIES LTD.
We ran a comprehensive, national search for a SR&ED consultant, and got proposals back from a number of well-known SR&ED advisors. Ryan and the team at ENTAX were the clear winners, and the last 4 years he and his team have proven repeatedly that we made the right decision. Unlike other firms, who will take you through a flashy sales process then pass you off to a Jr. Associate, ENTAX has walked us through the process every year. Through millions of dollars in claims, ENTAX has advised us on how to legitimately maximize our claims while minimizing the likelihood of on audit.
Jae Reichel, CEO, LIGHTSHIP WORKS INC.
Ryan is a very detailed oriented professional with a strong technical and business background who adds value to SR&ED claims. I enjoyed working with Ryan for three years on successful SR&ED filings as he shares the passion for technology startups.
P. LUONG, FOUNDER & CTO, FUSIONPIPE SOFTWARE
Ryan did excellent work for Aquatic Informatics. He provided valuable insight into the process, great advice on technical details and delivered reliable follow-through. I would strongly recommend Ryan and hope to work with him again in the future.
