His extensive experience working with Big Four firms in Australia and Asia includes assisting multinationals across a broad range of industries to obtain funding for innovation projects they would otherwise not have been able to access. David’s working knowledge of tax regimes in Singapore, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea gives him a unique insight into companies doing business in Asia.

‘It’s incredibly satisfying to see innovative companies benefit from the opportunity of furthering their R&D activities. My clients can expect value and in depth understand of their business operations. My goal is to assist claimant entities in the uptake of the R&D tax incentive, collate robust claim substantiation and provide guidance in the event of an audit. I enjoy seeing entities achieve funding to further their R&D activities and to undertake projects that, without the R&D funding, would not have been able to proceed.’
