COVID-19 and the R&DTI - Correction
We understand that many businesses are currently facing difficult economic circumstances given the recent bushfires and the impact of COVID-19. We are committed to working with program participants to support you in managing your R&D Tax Incentive claims.
Acknowledging the effects of COVID-19 on Australian businesses, we will accept applications for the 1 July 2018 - 30 June 2019 income year until 30 September 2020. You are not required to request an extension of time during this period.
If you are unable to lodge your application by 30 September 2020, you may request an extension of time in the usual way.
You will still be required to provide your R&D Tax Incentive registration receipt number when you lodge your R&D Schedule with the Australian Taxation Office.
We ask that you disregard the previous email from us which mentioned that you require your registration number in in your company tax return, which was sent in error. Your registration number is required when you lodge your company R&D Schedule.
We encourage companies to contact our Contact Centre on 13 28 46 or through our web form with any questions that they may have.
