David Mumford Associate Director - R&D Tax

"Being a valued conduit between innovative companies and available Government incentives is extremely rewarding knowing you play an integral part in their IP development."
Recommend David Mumford

David’s working knowledge of tax regimes in Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea gives him a unique insight into companies doing business in Asia.

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.

The combination of his qualifications and experience in engineering and accounting provides an invaluable platform to understanding multiple facets of a client’s project, from its technical merits to its path to commercialisation.

“It’s incredibly satisfying to see innovative companies benefit from the opportunity of furthering their R&D activities. Clients expect value and an in-depth understanding of their business operations. My goal is to assist claimants in the uptake of the R&D tax incentive, collate robust claim substantiation and provide guidance in the event of an audit.”
