About their skills

R&D Tax Incentive

– We assist in identifying and documenting eligible activities and expenditure for presentation to AusIndustry and the ATO.

We articulate areas of both opportunity and risk, so that your business can be secure in the funding gained from the incentive.

We assist small businesses, local and international groups access cash flow benefits currently worth 8.5 to 43.5 cents in the dollar.

Government Grants

– We also assist businesses access millions of dollars in Government Grants such as the Accelerating Commercialisation and Jobs for NSW programs.

There is more to it than the preparation of the application form – we start by advising on the scope of the project, the likelihood of success, the supporting documentation available and the cross-over (if any) with the R&D Tax Incentive program.

If the other key aspects (e.g. business plan, IP, funding model) are unlikely to stack up, we can help figure out why, and help you pull it all together.
