A Guide to the Australian Govt Research and Development Tax Incentive
The R&D Tax Incentive is the Australian Government’s principal measure to encourage industry investment in research and development (R&D). It is a broad-based, market-driven program that aims to boost company competitiveness, improve productivity and deliver economy-wide benefits to Australia.
