The R&D Tax Incentive Scheme is an Australian Government program under which companies receive cash refunds for 43.5% of eligible expenditure on research and development.
Funds will be used to accelerate the recent launches of Zenivol™ for Insomnia, HOPE™ for Autism and a new CBD-Toothpaste into global markets and also to advance Zelira's ongoing clinical and product development programs.
