R&D Tax Incentive

The Research & Development (R&D) Tax Incentive is a targeted, generous and easy to access entitlement program that helps businesses offset some of the costs of doing R&D.

The program aims to help more businesses do R&D and innovate. It is a broad-based entitlement program.

This means that it is open to firms of all sizes in all sectors who are conducting eligible R&D.


What benefit does the R&D Tax Incentive provide?

The R&D Tax Incentive has two core components:

  • 45 per cent refundable tax offset for eligible entities with a turnover of < $20 million.

  • A non-refundable 40 per cent tax offset for all other eligible entities.
