Hi all, has anyone used Time Tracker on a project for which a tax credit claim will be made? (e.g. the "SR&ED" program in Canada)
The current behavior of Time Tracker gives the most flexibility, with the user deciding when they enter their time if it is eligible for an SR&ED claim. However, I fear this approach will not be accurate enough for larger enterprise teams or departments. I suggest it would be more accurate to have the project planner or department manager intentionally create project tasks that are SR&ED eligible (or not).
An individual worker in a larger enterprise team may not understand SR&ED claim rules or the business strategy, and may forget to set the flag at all. I expect most businesses will email a table around to project and department members listing tasks eligible for SR&ED, and supervisors will spend time checking timesheets for accuracy against the table. Recording SR&ED eligibility at a task level will save work entering and reviewing time. Of course this requires that project tasks be created with SR&ED eligibility in mind, but I think the increased accuracy, reduced work, and enhanced project visibility will easily justify the setup work up front.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

At some point someone asked for custom fields on projects. I wonder if this was related to SR&ED, and perhaps could be done as part of such customization.
