Update on R&D tax credit and grants

This article was published on 9 November 2017

The Government is committed to supporting increased business R&D, including through a R&D tax credit.

Update 19 April 2018

The Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Inland Revenue and Callaghan Innovation have designed an R&D tax incentive proposal and are seeking input into the design process. Read more...

Ministers are yet to make any decisions on a tax credit or changes to R&D grants. 

MBIE, Callaghan Innovation and Inland Revenue are working together on the Government’s commitment to increasing business R&D. 

Until decisions are made, the current grants system remains in place and grant applications can be made as usual.
