Northern Australia has multiple advantages for aquaculture industry development especially linked to natural resources and proximity to export markets. However, there are challenges to expansion such as remote locations and lack of infrastructure. The CRCNA commissioned a ‘Northern Australia Aquaculture Industry Situational Analysis’ to understand the current situation and future challenges and opportunities. An important output of the project is to deliver prioritised recommendations for the support required to enable industry expansion.

The R&D Tax Incentive is the Australian Government’s principal measure to encourage industry investment in research and development. It provides generous benefits for eligible research and development activities (R&D activities) to around 13,000 companies each year.

The R&D Tax Incentive is administered jointly by AusIndustry and the ATO.

At this session, you will expand your knowledge of the program, find out more about the registration process, and get a better feel for exactly what type of activities can be claimed under the R&D Tax Incentive.
