Government Grants and Tax Incentives Services

At Acro, we assist our clients to access Government Grants and Tax Incentives. We will work closely with our clients to identify which schemes are applicable to their businesses, and then assist them to prepare the documents and provide evidence to support their application.

The following are the key government grants, tax incentives and concessions:

R & D Tax Incentives

The R&D tax incentive encourages companies to engage in R&D activities to create innovation and technological advancements in various industries in Australia. This R&D tax incentive program assists businesses with offsetting some of the costs of performing Research & Development. The program is non-competitive, so companies eligible to claim will get the benefit of the R&D tax incentive.

Entrepreneurs' Program

The Entrepreneurs program aims to support small and medium businesses to improve their business capability and competitiveness, promote economic growth and support the commercialisation of new products, processes and services.

This program offers support to businesses through facilitators and advisors to improve their competitiveness and productivity.
