Research & development tax incentive

Victoria University is a Registered Research Service Provider that is recognised as having expertise to perform research and development on behalf of other companies.

The R&D Tax Incentive program helps businesses offset some of the costs of doing R&D to incentivise businesses to undertake R&D and innovate.

The program is open to firms who are conducting eligible R&D, including R&D activities contracted through Registered Research Service Providers like Victoria University.

The R&D Tax Incentive has two core components:

  • a 43.5% refundable tax offset to eligible entities with an aggregated turnover of less than $20 million per annum
  • a non-refundable 38.5% tax offset to all other eligible entities.

Advice can be found from a variety of professional service providers, including the business.gov website or the Australian Taxation Office.
