Fireside Chat #2: Startups, R+D, and Tax Incentive

If your venture is spending money on research and development of your product, you may be eligible for substantial benefit from the new R&D tax incentive regime.

Come along to our upcoming Fireside Chat and learn about the new changes that impact startups, find out if you are eligible, and get clear on the claims process.

You’ll hear it straight from the horse’s mouth, with the IRD team of executives coming down especially from Wellington to speak with Christchurch’s startup and innovation ecosystem.

Speakers include:

  • Xavier Watts – Senior Policy Advisor – IRD
  • Keith Taylor – Strategic Policy Advisor – IRD
  • Prahm Nation – Senior Operational Policy Advisor- IRD

Like all great Fireside Chats – there’s plenty of time for group and individual Q&A so get this out to your team, figure out who needs to be there, and let’s look at putting some of that R&D investment back into your pocket so that you can keep that venture growing.
