The Australian R&D tax concession legislative highlights presentation

Published on 27 Feb 08 by NEW SOUTH WALES DIVISION, THE TAX INSTITUTE

The journey to market can be long and costly for companies investing in innovation. Improving a company's technological competitiveness requires risk capital. The R&D tax concession provides opportunities for these innovators to mitigate the after tax costs by claiming tax incentives. Accelerated deductions of 125% for eligible expenditure, a tailored program to cash out tax losses to the extent of R&D spend for small business (R&D Tax Offset) and the ability to apply for a 175% premium tax concession after satisfying specific eligibility criteria form the basis of the incentive to innovate.

Topics covered by this presentation include:

  • the financial benefits of R&D tax concessions (or R&D tax offset)
  • the key eligibility criteria
  • case studies covering products, processes and services
  • the international premium R&D concession
  • the implications for self-assessment (ATO/AusIndustry).
