Incentives for innovation and infrastructure

Source: Taxation In Australia Journal Article

Published Date: 1 Apr 2022


The world will continue to innovate, and those who do not will be left behind. The global economy is evolving and developing at exponential rates with the ongoing search for efficiencies, increased productivity and new ways to increase competition. This chapter of the Case for Change paper explores how the tax system can support innovation and growth in our economy. Since first publication of this chapter, there have been some announcements that address some of the recommendations, such as the introduction of a patent box regime. On the other hand, the Board of Taxation was due to report to the government by November 2021 on its review into the dual administration of the R&D tax incentive. We are yet to hear what the outcome of the Board's review is and whether the government will support any recommendations for improvement of the current system. Indeed, one hopes that the government takes the opportunity of that report to adopt the recommendations in this chapter.
