Is your business developing new innovative products or services?

If you are undertaking experimental activities to develop new product or service offerings, you may be eligible to claim Research & Development tax or R&DTI incentive from the government.

The R&DTI encourages companies to engage in R&D benefiting Australia, by providing a tax offset for eligible R&D activities.

For most companies, the R&DTI provides a tax rebate of up to 43.5% of eligible R&D expenditure.

For example, if you spend $100,000 on developing a new product or service and are eligible to claim, you could get back up to $43,500 from ATO.

The eligibility to claim R&DTI will depend on whether:

To be eligible, you must conduct, or plan to conduct, at least one eligible core R&D activity to register for the R&DTI.

Core R&D activities are such experimental activities:

  • whose outcome cannot be known or determined in advance.
  • that are conducted for the purpose of generating new knowledge.

You must register with the Department of Industry, Innovation, and Science before you lodge your claim.

For the income year ending on 30 June 2022, the deadline to submit your R&DTI application is 30 April 2023.
