Research and Development Tax Advisor

Pavel holds a PhD in Biological Sciences, and has previously lectured at three different tertiary institutions in South Africa over a period of 18 years, simultaneously undertaking both personal and collaborative scientific research.

His research culminated in the publication of many peer-reviewed journal articles in scientific journals, as well as presentations at a number of international conferences.

He has also worked at the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) as a Manager in their education division.

This was followed by a 6-year stint at Ernst & Young (EY) where he progressed through to the position of R&D Tax Manager.

Pavel was sought by another reputable R&D advisory firm, MJA, where he headed up and grew their Victorian practice over 4 years.

In April 2018, together with General Counsel at Clearpoint Legal, Joel Cranshaw, Pavel co-founded Clearpoint Ventures – a dedicated R&D Tax Advisory firm.

With a Doctorate in Biology and a two-decade academic career in the Sciences, Pavel is well-placed to identify and understand the technology that underpins R&D claims across a number of tech sectors.

Working with the start-up and SME community, Pavel provides R&D Tax Advisory services across the AgriTech, BioTech, FinTech, MedTech, Life Sciences, Manufacturing and Mining sectors.

By maintaining active contact with a number of academic institutions and researchers (some globally), Pavel is often able to connect people on multiple levels.

In addition to providing valuable guidance, advice, and resources to ensure compliant R&D Tax Incentive claims, Clearpoint Ventures has already enabled clients to receive substantial cash refunds.

Pavel has also worked with a number of multinationals, providing expert R&D Tax advice on local and overseas R&D.

He also provides expert advice and guidance on overseas entities wanting to set up companies in Australia – specifically around the requirements relating to the R&D Tax Incentive program.

Pavel has also met the requirements for R&D Tax Agent registration, and is currently registered with the Tax Practitioners Board.

He has been invited to attend the State Reference Group (VIC), which is a government-industry group comprising ATO, AusIndustry, and established R&D Tax advisory firms, that meet quarterly to discuss the management and administration of the R&D Tax Incentive program.

Having regular contact (including meetings) with the regulatory bodies (AusIndustry and the ATO), enables Clearpoint Ventures to keep up-to-date with the issues affecting both the R&D Tax Incentive program and the companies that claim the tax offset.
