Templates - Audit

Audit templates have been prepared for external registered auditors to use when preparing special purpose audit opinions for the BIC scheme. All Applications for Claim/Determination must be accompanied by a special purpose audit relating to relevant claims for:

  • innovation expenditure 
  • Total Eligible Revenue (TER) and / or Eligible Start-up Investment Amount (ESIA).

The auditor must be an independent auditor registered under the Corporations Act 2001. The registered auditor number is required in the Application for Claim/Determination form.

In certain circumstances the special purpose audit may contain qualifications. The auditor should select either the: Unqualified, Qualified or Qualified (Limitation on Scope) audit template for Claims for the BIC scheme.

Please note that audits (on auditor's letterhead) must be submitted with an Application for Claim/Determination. The relevant text in the PDF documents below may need to be scanned and copied onto the auditor's letterhead.

The templates are available from the download section on the right.
