Our national team unlocks incentives - including the R&D Tax Incentive - to a broad range of industries.

We can assist with R&D tax and government related grants, and International R&D tax programs. We help organisations build and optimise internal and external innovation capability.

Our team has a depth of experience in assessing, compiling and defending R&D claims and includes a large number of experienced R&D tax personnel with engineering and technical experience. Our national R&D Tax team can assist you in:

  • identifying R&D tax activities
  • evaluating R&D projects
  • calculating R&D expenditure
  • preparing R&D Tax Schedules for lodgement with the Income Tax Return
  • preparing R&D project documentation (companies must maintain internal documents detailing their current R&D Tax activities) for R&D Tax compliance
  • identifying appropriate process management and systems to ensure adequate R&D Tax documentation is retained
  • substantiating your R&D Tax claim
  • conducting R&D Tax training sessions.

The changing market

The R&D landscape is changing. Higher levels of review activity and scrutiny by governing bodies means businesses are forced to focus less on the identification of R&D activity, and more on efficient assessment, processing and substantiation of R&D tax incentive claims.
