National and State Reference Groups

National Reference Group

The National Reference Group (NRG) has been replaced by the R&D Tax Incentive Roundtable (the Roundtable). The Roundtable discusses administrative priorities, opportunities and emerging issues in the operation of the R&D Tax Incentive between the co-administrators of the Incentive and panel members from tax and industry associations, along with some program participants.

For more information view the R&D Tax Incentive Roundtable page.

State Reference Groups

State Reference Group (SRG) forums share the R&D Tax Incentive Roundtable (the Roundtable) outcomes with the broader tax agent community. SRGs also discuss operational matters relating to the R&D Tax Incentive at the State and Territory level.

The forums provide an opportunity to discuss program administration at the local and regional levels, allowing participants to share experiences and discuss operational matters. Common issues across SRGs are communicated to the Roundtable for discussion at a national level.
