Federal Budget 2014: R&D Tax Incentive and Grant Funding 

The Australian Government has provided some form of R&D tax incentive since the mid-eighties. Whilst the mechanics and generosity of the R&D benefit have changed over that time, Government commitment to some form of R&D tax incentive has not.

The current R&D Tax Incentive was only introduced for the 2012 income year. At the time, there was bipartisan support for a more generous program and it is disappointing that so soon after its introduction, the Government has sought to reduce its support.
