Research & Development Grant (R&D) Explained


Eligibility for the R&D Tax Incentive is determined by the nature of the R&D activities being undertaken and the amount of eligible R&D expenditure incurred. To be eligible, the R&D activities must aim to:
* create new knowledge, or
* significantly improve existing knowledge or technology, and must involve a systematic progression of work that is based on principles of natural or physical sciences, engineering, or social sciences.

In addition, the business must incur eligible R&D expenditure, which includes the cost of salaries and wages for employees directly involved in the R&D activities, as well as certain materials and consumables used in the R&D process.

How to apply

Applying for the Research & Development (R&D) program can be complex, especially as it has a self reporting element and obligation. The process involves registering the technical R&D activities with Ausindustry and then submitting the financial claim through a tax schedule as part of your tax return to the Australian Taxation Office.
