The R&D Tax Incentive scheme continues to be an important source of government support for start-ups and established companies engaged in innovation across all industries and sectors as it enters its 11th year of operation. As it does so, the way in which it is administered continues to evolve and mature as the regulators increase their compliance activities and as the Tribunal and Courts increasingly provide guidance as to its scope and application. Not to mention the announcement of a Board of Tax Review to be completed in 2021 and a patent box scheme included amongst the budget announcements.
Join us at this half day R&D masterclass to hear from senior members of the ATO and AusIndustry, experienced R&D advisers and lawyers specialising in R&D matters. Learn about recent decisions of the Tribunal and Courts, the latest in administrative practice, current focus areas, how to be prepared for and navigate R&D disputes and the policy discussions around incentivising the future of innovation and R&D in Australia.
