About Michael Johnson Associates

If something is standing between you and your business ideas for growth we are here to fill in the gap. Michael Johnson Associates (MJA) specialises in helping Australian companies obtain maximum value from R&D tax incentives and other government support for innovation.

We are recognised experts in this field, with a proven track record over more than 25 years of working with companies to:

  • Identify eligible R&D and commercialisation activities
  • Prepare and maximise legitimate claims
  • Manage compliance reviews and audits
  • Develop grant strategies and prepare grant applications.

We know the new R&D Tax Incentive program and its legislation and guidelines, and have been actively involved in their development.

We have specialised services and proven methodologies to streamline your R&D tax claim and grant application processes, and minimise the resources and effort required to deliver results.

We maintain close relationships with government policy makers and administrators to ensure we are always up-to-date with new developments.

Our team of high-calibre consultants is one of the most experienced groups of R&D Tax Incentive practitioners in Australia, and is skilled in building strong client relationships that deliver real business value.
