Research & Development
Research and Development Tax Incentive Program &
Government Grants for the Commercialisation of Technology
The practice has developed a core specialisation of assisting unique Australian businesses operating within intensive
knowledge based sustainable industries, to access relevant R&D tax incentives and government grants to commercialise
their proprietary technology.
The principal has successfully lodged since 1987, on behalf of private SME companies and also publicly listed companies,
numerous claims under the existing R&D Tax Concession. Clients have ranged over a broad spectrum of industries, with
particular emphasis on the advanced manufacturing, mining and mining services, information communications technology, agribusiness, cleantech energy and technology sectors.
All R&D claims prepared and lodged by the principal in the past have been processed and audited by both the ATO and
AusIndustry, without adjustment. The principal takes a "hands on" approach to preparing all R&D Tax Incentive claims and
is personally involved in all aspects of these claims.
The principal has a demonstrable 100% success rate in responding to ATO and AusIndustry initiated audits/reviews of
R&D claims lodged on behalf of clients.
The practice has also developed a comprehensive methodology to allow clients have appropriate systems in place, in
order that they are able to readily identify, record and substantiate eligible R&D activities and costs, so as to maximise their eligible R&D related expenditure claims.
