We previously wrote to you on 7 April 2020 with our concerns in relation to current uncertainty surrounding the measures contained in Treasury Laws Amendment (Research and Development Tax Incentive) Bill 2019 (R&D Bill). The relevant part has been extracted in the attached Appendix.
Delays to the progression of the R&D Bill have occurred as a result of the planned hearings for the inquiry into the R&D Bill run by the Senate Standing Committee on Economics (Committee) being postponed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Committee is now not scheduled to report until 7 August 2020.
