Nicholas Parry, one of our BDO Tax Partners, will host this workshop on accessing government assistance. Assistance schemes, such as the R&D tax incentive, innovation grants and exports grants, can be invaluable for Fintechs in providing much-needed funding in early growth stages and in providing a competitive advantage for mature businesses. However, careful consideration and planning is needed to successfully navigate the government compliance regime.
Nicholas will lead a discussion on the current interpretation and expectations of the regulators for the tax incentive and grant programs, and will explain how to maximise entitlement and minimise risk. An additional area of taxation to open for discussion in the workshop is the complex interactions of GST for providers of financial products. Nicholas will provide an overview key points for companies that provide financial products.
