About the R&D Tax Incentive.

The Research and Development Tax Incentive (R&D Tax Incentive or R&DTI) helps to offset some of the costs of eligible R&D, which benefits the wider Australian economy.

If you’re a small to medium-sized company, you can collaborate with an RSP like Whistle Design Group, to conduct R&D activities for your company without having to invest in the specialist staff or infrastructure needed to support such activities.

Apply to register your eligible R&D with the Department of Industry, Science, Energy & Resources within 10 months of the end of your company’s income year. You may then receive a tax offset when you lodge your Company Income Tax Return with the Australian Taxation Office.

What do You get?

You may be eligible for a tax benefit to offset some of the cost of your eligible R&D activities. This may be a refundable or non-refundable offset depending on your company.

Who is this for?

Your company needs to be liable to pay income tax in Australia, conduct at least one activity that meets the definition of a core R&D activity, and incur the minimum eligible R&D expenditure.

Thanks to our diverse project experience and background, we’re registered in the following fields:

  • 0903 Biomedical Engineering – Medical device development
  • 0910 Manufacturing Engineering – Packaging development
  • 0913 Mechanical Engineering – Engineering design, simulation, prototyping, testing, Failure Modes and Effect Analysis
