This is Part 3 of the step-by-step guide for companies seeking information on how to claim the R&D Tax Incentive. You can read the full guide about How to Apply R&D Tax Incentive here. In this article, you will learn about:

  • What is the R&D Notice of Registration
  • Meaning of it for your R&D Tax Incentive Application
  • Timeframe from R&DTI application to the Notice of Registration
  • Why hiring a R&DTI specialist

The Notice of Registration is a unique number your business receives after making the R&D Tax Incentive application with AusIndustry. It looks like this: IR2400001, where the IR number is based on the financial year (24 if it’s FY24), followed by a sequence of numbers that represent the order you’ve lodged in the queue for that year. If you’re the first to apply in that year, then your number will be 00001.

The Notice of Registration means that your business activities have been registered with AusIndustry. It doesn’t mean that your application has been approved. But it’s an important outcome, given this number means your business has now reserved the right to claim the R&DTI for that Financial Year. Some companies are not able to reach this step due to errors on the application form that disqualify them.

The timeframe between Step Two and Step Three is usually 10 business days. The extensive and solid experience of Bridgepoint Group in claiming R&DTI has given us the ability to manage Steps Two, Three, and Four almost simultaneously, providing our clients with a faster turnaround time from the qualification step to lodging the Tax Return. It only depends on our clients’ capabilities to provide us with the information we need.

An experienced R&D Tax Incentive specialist like BridgePoint Group can facilitate the preparation and lodgement of your claim, liaising with both AusIndustry and the ATO.

  • Helping assess your eligibility and determining the feasibility of proceeding.
