R&D Incentives 

Organisations that invest in R&D to drive innovation can create returns for their own business and assist in creating long-term value and competitive advantage for Australia. This is particularly relevant in tougher economic times when companies are faced with margin pressures, disruptive business models, technological obsolescence and the incursion of information technology in their interactions with customers, suppliers and intermediaries.

Grants & Incentives

Our Australian Tax practice helps clients in a wide range of industries to identify government environmental incentives and other assistance schemes.

In addition, we are seeing the growth of enterprise-wide innovation programs that change the way businesses operate.


KPMG’s R&D Incentives group has experience in extracting tax savings from technology based improvements to processes, products and services that are often overlooked as they occur outside traditional product development or R&D departments.
