The new R&D tax incentive and the resources sector presentation


The new R&D tax incentive is upon us. There are winners and losers but it is still not clear who’s who. This presentation maps out the main changes from the old R&D tax concession so you can determine where claims now lie.

Topics covered include:

  • the changed definition of eligible R&D activities
  • issues relating to the eligibility of mining and minerals processing trials
  • the problems for resources claims created by the explanatory memorandum
  • the treatment of foreign-owned R&D
  • the requirements for advance and overseas findings
  • the impact of the wider feedstock expenditure provisions
  • the challenges associated with the new compliance regime.
