Substantiating an experiment commercially - The R&D tax conundrum paper


This paper covers:

  • introduction to R&D Tax Incentive and the new eligibility criteria
  • explanation of core and supporting activities: what they are and how they differ
  • the problems with substantiation requirements as a result of the segmenting of an R&D project into individual activities for the purpose of assessing tax offset eligibility
  • a proposed solution of how to claim under the new scheme and how much documentation is enough, based on recent AAT decisions.
