Research & development tax incentives

Victoria University is a Registered Research Service Provider that is recognised as having expertise to perform research and development on behalf of other companies.

The R&D Tax Incentive program helps businesses offset some of the costs of doing R&D to incentivise businesses to undertake R&D and innovate.

The program is open to firms who are conducting eligible R&D, including R&D activities contracted through Registered Research Service Providers like Victoria University.
