How Scaleups can Benefit from the R&D Tax Incentive

The scale-up phase is the most important stage of a company’s growth as it is both critical and fleeting. It is the stage where investment, income, customers, and the number of employees is growing. Scaling up a business can introduce new challenges as there is a need to improve a company’s existing systems and create new ones. It is essential for scaleups to have the financial resources it needs to fuel its growth – and this is where the Research and Development tax incentive can help.

As scale-up companies further develop their products and enter new markets, they can easily rely on the federal government’s R&D Tax Incentive to help them with their business expansion plans. If you are a scaleup company conducting eligible R&D activity, the R&D Tax Incentive programme can give you as much as a 43.5% tax incentive. Which can provide tax refunds that can help fund almost half of the company’s development costs.

The R&D Tax Incentive caters for companies with under $20 million in turnover with a 43.5% refundable tax credit for each dollar of R&D spent. The R&D Tax Incentive offers company’s over $20m in turnover a non-refundable tax offset of 8.5% above the company’s tax rate for expenditure up to 2% of their overall expenditure. In addition, for R&D expenditure over 2% of their overall expenditure, the company receives a 16.5% in non-refundable tax offset above the company’s tax rate.
