R&D Tax prepayment service


TCF Services is proud to offer eligible R&D companies a unique competitive advantage through their R&D Tax prepayment service. Under this initiative,  companies eligible for the 43.5% refundable tax offset with annual aggregated R&D turnover less than $20 million may receive a prepayment of up to 80% against their R&D Tax Incentive benefit prior to lodging their ATO tax return.

Two distinct prepayment offerings are available based upon meeting TCF Services’ due diligence requirements. The first offering allows eligible R&D companies to receive a prepayment against their prior year’s expenses before registering their annual activities and lodging the company’s tax return.The second prepayment offering allows eligible R&D companies to draw down up to 80% of its benefit against current year R&D expenditure on a quarterly or half-yearly basis.

This initiative enables R&D start-ups access to additional cash flow when they need it most to support their R&D and commercialisation strategies. If you have any questions or are interested in participating please call David Tonkin or Gerry Frittmann on (02) 8219 4900 .

R&D Tax Health check – Given the high level of audit activity resulting in claimants receiving demands to pay back cash benefits it raises concerns for many R&D applicants who rely on the program to offset early stage risk, do you need a second opinion?
