R&D is my passion. Over the past ten years I’ve raised over $250 million through innovation grant applications. 

Under Mike Burfield’s leadership, our R&D Incentive team increases the accessibility of R&D taxation incentives for progressive Australian businesses. With over 23 years of professional tax advisory experience, Mike is one of the most experienced R&D taxation specialists in Australia.

Mike Burfield joined Bentleys from his own R&D tax advisory business, which he built to become the third largest provider of R&D tax services in South Australia. Mike has a strong track record in preparing successful, competitive innovation grant applications, having raised over $250 million through these channels over the past ten years.

In business, Mike has developed and licensed patents, and has started and exited technology companies in IT, food and engineering sectors. Mike Burfield is a director of numerous companies in Australia, including several Australian subsidiaries of US drug development and biotechnology companies.

Bentleys is a valued partner, delivering outcomes for The University of Adelaide. They challenged us to extract more value from the National Wine Centre and provided pragmatic recommendations.
