Frequently Asked Questions
The Research & Development (R&D) Tax Incentive is Australia’s single largest government incentive. Australian companies creating new and novel products or services can utilise R&D to claim back a proportion of their eligible expenditure as a cash refund or tax offset.
With a comprehensive strategy and the correct execution, the R&D Tax Incentive can provide cash flow and support to grow innovation within your company.
Hypothetical Example <$20 million annual turnover
If your annual turnover is less than $20 million, you’re eligible to claim 43.5% on R&D expenditure as a cash refund.
- Your company turnover is $3,000,000
- You have $1,000,000 in eligible R&D expenditure
- Therefore you will receive a refundable tax offset of $435,000 ($1,000,000*43.5%)
Hypothetical Example >$20 million annual turnover
If your annual turnover is greater than $20 million, you’re eligible to claim 38.5% on R&D expenditure as a tax offset.
- Your company turnover is $22,000,000
- You have $4,000,000 in eligible R&D expenditure
- Therefore you will receive a non-refundable tax offset of $1,540,000 ($4,000,000*38.5%)
Your business is eligible to claim the R&D Tax Incentive if you meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Researching the development of potential products due to a lack of public knowledge available
- Creating new products or services that are unique to your industry
- Improving or modifying a product, service or process or changing the way it is produced
- Developing new knowledge/methods of completing tasks where the outcome is often unknown
- R&D consultants can use their existing knowledge to effectively execute your R&D claim promptly
- Lodge your claim with confidence that the activities meet the eligibility criteria and the proper due diligence has been performed
- We have several years of experience in R&D across several industry sectors
- Avoid distracting your internal team from their core work by having a team of experienced R&D consultants working on your claim in the background
- De-risk losing company Intellectual Property (IP) that often sits with one employee and leaves the company when they do
- Use our expert knowledge and advice to maximise your R&D benefit and achieve the highest level of compliance
Whilst R&D is a self-assessed program, it is not guaranteed from an audit/review by AusIndustry. Our job is to ensure your claim is 100% eligible, that all costs are captured/maximised and that you have the supporting documentation to substantiate your claim.
Depending on how quickly we can obtain all the required information from yourself and your team, an R&D application can be processed by us in 2-3 weeks. Then allow for an additional 1-2 weeks for the R&D refund/offset to be issued by the ATO.
As every client and their business is different in terms of size, requirements and work involved, our proposals are tailored to each client’s individual needs. Depending on if it is just an R&D application, government grant or both we can discuss fees for our services and a model that best suits your business.

- We spend a considerable amount of time ensuring your R&D activities are compliant in relation to the latest guidance and tax legislation.
- We educate your team by creating an R&D sensitive team culture, ensuring nothing is missed throughout the year.
- We engage with you on a regular basis and complete the required work throughout the year as opposed to the traditional once a year catch up that is becoming more heavily scrutinised by the governing bodies. As soon as lodgement dates open we can submit your application to ensure a prompt submission of your tax refund/offset.
- We maintain the highest level of compliance for your R&D.
- Ensure you regularly record all R&D activities, develop supporting documentation and have a system for managing throughout the financial year. Don’t leave it to the last minute!
- Get scientific! Ensure you develop a strong hypothesis and make it clear what you are aiming to achieve in your experiments using specifics.
- Prove yourself! Research that the product, method or development you are creating does not already exist in the market and if it does explain why or how yours is different and developing new knowledge.
- When it comes to government grants ensure you answer the question and follow the assessment criteria to the tee. Be concise, do not write emotional responses and only include information about the company/project that is relevant to the grant you are applying for. Having an outsider review your work with an unbiased, non-emotional perspective can increase your chances of success tenfold.
If you have completed a grant application and simply need a review and honest feedback, we can also offer this service. Speak with one of our consultants to learn more.
We love working with entrepreneurs, CEOs, CFOs and R&D managers who are passionate about their R&D project. Your success is our success, and we’ll always endeavour to achieve the best outcomes for our clients in an efficient manner, hence why we call ourselves prmpt.
