    Claiming an R&D Tax Credit: The Process

    When you’re uncertain of the process, claiming your R&D Tax Incentive is a short but perilous quest. Swanson Reed now simplifies it:

    Step One: Determine Your Eligibility

    To claim an R&D Tax credit, you must first qualify for that credit. According to the ATO, companies must be:

    • Incorporated under an Australian law.
    • Incorporated under a foreign law but be an Australian resident (for income purposes).
    • A resident of a country that Australia shares a double-tax agreement with.
    • Part of a permanent establishment as defined by the double-tax agreement.

    Step Two: Note all Exemptions

    Trying to claim an R&D Tax Incentive requires an understanding of its exemptions, with the following entities unable to apply:

    • Companies whose statutory income is exempt from income tax.
    • Companies controlled by one or more exempt entities (refers to 38.5% non-refundable tax offset only).
    • Companies whose aggregated turnover is less than $20 million (refers to 43.5% refundable tax offset only).

    Step Three: Establish Aggregated Turnover.

    Before claiming an R&D Tax Incentive, you must first calculate your aggregated turnover. This sum – which includes annual turnover for the income year and the annual turnover of any entity connected or affiliated with you within that same year – determines which options are available to you:

    • Aggregated Amount of Over $20 Million: non-refundable 38.5% tax offset.
    • Aggregated Amount of Less Than $20 Million: refundable 43.5% tax offset.

    By following these steps, you can more easily claim an R&D Tax credit and expedite the documentation process.
