Why conduct research and development in Australia?

Australia boasts a thriving research community across a range of industries, working closely with government agencies and higher education institutions. Facilities and personnel are world class.

Another reason for foreign companies to consider Australia as a location for R&D expansion is the tax incentives on offer: The R&D Tax Incentive is a program designed to encourage companies to conduct eligible R&D activities in Australia. The R&D Tax Incentive is jointly administered by the Australian Tax Office (ATO) and the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (AusIndustry).

You must register your R&D activities with AusIndustry before you claim the refund. AusIndustry is responsible for determining the eligibility of R&D activities, and the ATO will determine if the expenditure claimed in your tax return for your R&D activities is eligible for the refund. Making the applications and maximising the benefits is at the core of Acclime’s R&D Advisory service.
