Access RnD is a boutique, independent specialist tax consultancy on the R&D Tax Incentive program as well as Export Market Development Grant (EMDG), and other Federal Government funding programmes, including the AusIndustry Commercialisation Australia grants programme.

Our independent status is important. As we do not provide general tax or accounting consultancy services, we are not subject to conflicts of interest. Instead, we work with you and your existing tax agent in a collaborative, mutually beneficial fashion.

We work across a broad range of grants: export grants, R&D Tax Incentive, and more than 20 competitive discretionary grants. The latter are constantly changing and evolving, from a landscape of over 500 grant opportunities at the federal and state level. As a direct result, our client base is incredibly diverse: from startup and pre-profit, through to large public companies with over $50m annual turnover; from founders putting in sweat equity, through to companies with hundreds of employees.

Our clients cover just about every field of endeavour imaginable: IT hardware and software, defence tech, manufacturing, fintech, biotech, medtech, agtech, chemical sciences; from conventional website trading businesses, through to innovative product development businesses, such as a company developing a flying car. We have multiple clients in the cattle industry, including cattle associations, tech businesses, and companies developing Asparagopsis projects to address bovine CO₂ emissions. And we have clients who have just started working with us, through to clients we’ve been assisting for 25+ years.
