R&D Tax Incentives

Almost all my clients are involved in R&D according to the definition of that term by the Australian Tax Office.

In short, investigative and experimental activities qualify for the R&D tax incentive if:

  • their outcome is uncertain
  • the outcome can only be determined by experiment
  • the activities are for the purpose of acquiring new information
It is important to understand that you may be overlooking activities that you consider routine. The scheme provides a net after-tax benefit of 10 cents and up to 15 cents for companies with a group turnover of less than $20 million. Here is the link to the AusIndustry website: http://www.ausindustry.gov.au/programs/innovation-rd/rd-taxincentive/Pages/default.aspx


I'm no tax expert, but this is surely not an opportunity to be overlooked. Please do contact me if you're interested. I would be delighted to point you in right direction - barry@beagar.com.au
