About Us

Talk To US

Noah Connect specialises in Federal Government Innovation Programs with a particular focus on the flagship program in that space, the R&D Tax Incentive.

We have decades of experience in this area and a proven track record in securing funding – whether it be R&D tax refunds, R&D tax offsets or grant monies – for all manner of large and small companies across all kinds of industries.

In R&D tax, our approach is compliance focused but we pride ourselves on being able to deliver a great result without unduly burdening our clients with the paperwork. In fact, in most cases we take on the lion’s share of the technical drafting and number crunching so that all our clients have to do is talk to us and provide the source documents and we will do the rest.

In terms of other funding, we offer a range of grant services and also have connections in the R&D Lending and Venture Capital spaces.

We’re interested in building long term relationships with our clients and so we will take the time to get to know your business so that our consulting approach can be more tailored to suit your business’s culture and stage of development.  In this way, we can often identify other areas of the business that could benefit from expert advice and, where this is beyond our immediate skill set, we can invariably refer you to one or other of the trusted advisers in our network.  This is just another way that we look to add value.

So, wherever your business may be in Australia, if you are looking for monies to support the development of a new or improved product, process, service, device or material, or are looking to commercialise some IP that you have already created, why not give us a call to discuss how we can help?
