Federal Government organises special consultative forum with key industry leaders.

Pattens Group will be part of a special consultative forum on R&D Tax with the NSW meeting to be held in Sydney on 18 November 2010.  The purpose of the forum is to provide an interactive and transparent environment to identify and discuss operational issues, including compliance and the ongoing preparation and maintenance of guidance material.  In particular, the focus of the meeting is on the continued roll out of AusIndustry’s new compliance framework providing opportunity for feedback and discussion on the compliance culture moving forwards.
We welcome input from any R&D Tax claimant to present to the forum for discussion.
Pattens Group, working together with AusIndustry and the Australian Tax Office (ATO), aim to ensure the most effective use of the R&D Tax program for all participating companies.
