Research and Development

Australian Government Tax Incentive For Process Improvement – Research & Development

Many recruitment firms are now re-thinking the traditional growth model of adding 360 degree consultants who are harder to even to attract and retain.

One of the smartest growth strategies is to re-engineer your client and candidate delivery model and split your team into sales, account management and resourcing – both offshore and onshore.

The Australian Government is providing generous tax rebates (money back not just a deduction) of up to 43.5% of eligible Research & Development spending for activities for Australian companies such as:

– process or client delivery improvement
– new product/service development
– experimental business activities with unknown outcomes
– activities leading to the generation of new knowledge

Navigator Consulting is experienced in a registered Australian Research Organisation successfully applying for Government Funding and has 20 years of recruitment industry research and development experience.
