In the current environment, the new R&D tax incentive has never been a more welcome source of cashflow for companies.
There’s been much happening in New Zealand with the introduction of a new R&D Tax Incentive program in April 2019. We will discuss the following:
- New Zealand R&D program overview and benefits
- The effect of COVID-19 on R&D
- Record-keeping and Documentation requirements
This is an interactive session and there will also be the opportunity for Q&A.
We look forward to seeing you there.
