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.
