Federal Budget 2018/19 – Proposed changes to the R&D Tax Incentive
“Here is the carrot, now here is the stick”

Treasurer Scott Morrison has announced proposed changes to the R&D Tax Incentive program with effect for income years starting on or after 1 July 2018. In leading up to the Budget the Treasurer was quoted in saying that the Government needs to stop “writing blank cheques to everyone that has a good idea” and that we should not have a “tax incentive for business as usual” activities. The proposed measures are estimated to deliver a net gain to the budget of around $2 billion between 2018/19 and 2021/22 reflecting, as stated in the Budget Papers “lower than forecast claims”.
