What is the R&D Tax Incentive?

The Research and Development Tax Incentive (RDTI) is a financial incentive program provided by the Australian Government. This incentive provides eligible businesses with a way to offset some of the costs associated with the R&D activities through tax benefits.

Who should apply for the RDTI Program?

You should take a closer look at the RDTI if your business:
• is incorporated under Australian or a foreign law
• conducts or plans to conduct one or more eligible core R&D activities
• has eligible R&D expenditure greater than $20,000 (if your expenditure is less than $20,000 you can still claim the tax offset by using a registered RSP to conduct your R&D)

What are the benefits of the RDTI Program?

Different benefits apply according to company turnover.

Companies with an aggregated turnover of less than $20 million may receive a refundable R&D offset rate equal to their corporate tax rate plus an 18.5% premium.
Companies with an aggregated turnover of $20 million or more may receive a non-refundable R&D tax offset rate equal to their corporate tax rate plus an incremental premium.

Premium increments are based on the intensity of your R&D expenditure as a proportion of total expenditure for the year.

Is your R&D eligible for the RDTI Program?

All businesses, big and small, are entitled to consider eligibility for claiming the R&D Tax Incentive. The incentive is not industry specific at all. In some cases, a business will be making something innovative but simply assume that its R&D is not eligible for the incentive. But more often than not, their innovation could actually be eligible.

There are 3 guidelines to understand if the Research and Development is eligible.

1. Core R&D Activities: Eligible R&D activities typically involve systematic, investigative, and experimental activities aimed at generating new knowledge or creating new or improved products, processes, services, or software. These activities should be conducted with the intention of resolving technical uncertainties.

2. Technical Uncertainty: To qualify, your R&D activities must address technical uncertainties. This means you should be attempting to overcome challenges or uncertainties that cannot be readily solved by a competent professional in the field.

3. Experimentation and Innovation: R&D should involve a level of experimentation, innovation, and creativity. It's not sufficient to perform routine or incremental work; there should be an element of seeking new solutions or breakthroughs.

If you're unsure whether your R&D activities qualify, our team can help.
