Helping your clients comply with the R&D Tax Incentive
Workshop, Wednesday 16 May, 1330–1500
Compliance with the numerous requirements of R&D Tax Incentive is fundamental to ensuring the appropriate benefits are obtained and retained by claimant companies. Companies engaging with CRCs must ensure and be able to appropriately evidence that the activities undertaken by the CRC on their behalf and associated expenditures incurred are eligible for inclusion in their claim for the R&D Tax Incentive. This is an area of increasing compliance focus by the Australian Taxation Office and Innovation Australia.
This workshop will focus on these requirements and address the following matters CRCs should consider when engaging with companies and the reports they provide:
- Contractual arrangements – IP ownership, at risk provisions and control of activities
- Reporting of core and supporting activities undertaken by the CRC
- Reporting the allocation of expenditure incurred by the CRC against core and supporting activities
- Reporting on the detail of actual activities undertaken by the CRC on the companies’ behalf
