Early Stage Innovation Company
We will help your company attract investors by obtaining Early Stage Innovation Company status with the ATO.
Attract capital investment to grow
Obtaining Early Stage Innovation Company status is crucial for start-ups as investors in ESICs receive 20% of their investment amount as a tax offset, and receive capital gains tax free status on the shares provided that they are held for more than 12 months
How our ESIC Service works
Certainty through a Private Ruling.
This is the initial stage where we have a discussion to determine whether your company is eligible for ESIC status
We prepare a Private Ruling on your behalf and provide it to you for review and sign-off
Once you sign off on the Private Ruling, we lodge it with the ATO and liaise with them directly to address any queries that they may have.
Once achieved, we will forward to you the ATO’s Private Ruling decision advising of your company’s ESIC status

What our clients say about us
It took us a good couple of years to get on top of our annual R&D claims process and still it was an effort of note. That’s until BridgePoint Group got involved – with their fantastic balance between professionalism and yet easy to work with, made this quick, efficient and completely painless for us.

I engaged with BridgePoint Group to assist with our R&D grant application process. I was bracing myself for a lengthy and convoluted process but they made it surprisingly quick and painless. The amount of money we were able to claim exceeded my expectations, so I will be using their services again in future.

We spend a lot of time modifying our processes and algorithms to maximise the insights to our 200+ hospitals across ANZ and the UAE. BridgePoint Group provided us expertise and knowledge that enabled us to understand the R&D work Potential(x) had undertaken and then provided us with the necessary process to prepare our application to AusIndustry and the ATO return without hassle. The ROI paid back a multiple by reducing our taxable income.
