This event covered an in-depth briefing session on the longawaited reforms to the R&D incentive program.

This event provided a significant opportunity to engage with officials from AusIndustry and the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), who will be jointly responsible for implementing and administering the practical aspects of the new program.

R&D specialist practitioners presented and discussed their interpretation of the new law and the opportunities now available.

This event covered the new definitions of core and supporting activities, the increased opportunities to conduct activities offshore and carry out activities on behalf of foreign entities, the impact of the feedstock rules in practice and the integrity measures.
