Research & development (R&D) 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.
About the tax incentive program
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.
The R&D Tax Incentive has two core components:
- a 43.5% refundable tax offset to eligible entities with an aggregated turnover of less than $20 million per annum
- a non-refundable 38.5% tax offset to all other eligible entities.
