April 2021: R&DTI eBulletin articles

April is a big month for R&DTI registrations – use the pre-registration checklist

If you’re ready to hit the R&DTI ‘apply now’ button, make sure you take a look at the R&DTI pre-registration checklist on our website. This new resource helps companies to double check their eligibility before they apply to register for the Research and Development Tax Incentive.
Further help is available on the airwaves: Episode 4 of our R&DTI Insights podcast discusses key information companies need to know prior to registering for the R&DTI and claiming R&D expenditure. Guests from AusIndustry and the ATO discuss who or what is an eligible R&D entity and eligible R&D activities, what type of records should be kept, how the registration process works, and common mistakes to avoid when registering.

The countdown has begun for the launch of the new R&DTI Portal

A new R&DTI Portal will be open for applications in July 2021, but you can get familiar with the portal much earlier. From 17 May, the portal will be available to preview and there is a range of new benefits to explore. Some of these benefits include:
  • A restructured registration form making it clearer for you to understand what eligibility criteria need to be addressed in your application.
  • The ability to see the status of your application in real time as well as indicators for when submission deadlines are approaching.
  • Improved security thanks to the use of MyGovID.
More information on the new portal will be provided in future editions of this newsletter, so keep a look out.
