RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
The Research and development (R&D) tax incentive encourages companies to engage in R&D
benefiting Australia, by providing a tax offset for eligible R&D activities. It has two core components:
- a refundable tax offset for certain eligible entities whose aggregated turnover is less than $20 million
- a non-refundable tax offset for all other eligible entities
We can determine if you’re eligible and help you to optimise your tax credit opportunities.
Industries that often qualify for this tax credit include:
IT | manufacturing | green technology | construction | medical | pharmaceutical | agriculture
