Research & development tax credits

Research & development tax credits

Undertaking research and development in New Zealand means your business may be eligible for a 15% tax credit on relevant expenditure. Our specialists can advise if you qualify.

Our services include:

  • Identifying if your business meets the necessary criteria

Our advisors are experienced at knowing whether your business is eligible for the research and development tax credit. You may qualify if you conducted an activity for the material purpose of creating new knowledge, improving processes, goods or services. The design of a new product, or improving an existing product, is an example of this. Critical to a successful claim, is the ability to illustrate a specific approach to resolve scientific or technological uncertainty.

  • Identifying expenditure that qualifies.

We ensure that internal processes capture the necessary information required to make a claim, completing or reviewing documentation prior to submission to Inland Revenue, and educating staff in respect of the regime.
