We prepare 1,500+ R&D tax claims per year

Swanson Reed is Australia’s largest R&D tax advisory firm, processing R&D claims for over 1,500 companies every year.

We only employ local chartered accountants and tax agents with specialist R&D experience.

The accounting and tax knowledge amongst our Tax and Legal team means that we can:

  • Quickly understand your accounting systems;
  • Investigate a methodology to capture costs on an ad hoc basis; and
  • Minimise disruption to your financial work flow.

As chartered accountants have a requirement to the Institute to provide the highest quality of service, one of our quality assurance practices is to engage a six-eye costing review by suitably qualified personnel for all engagements.
