Clients would recommend me because I have credibility. I am a scientist.

Dr. Rita Choueiri

Director, R&D Incentives

Rita is a keen promoter of innovation. It is important to her that Australian companies continue to innovate to enable them to ultimately compete on a global scale. She believes that if Australia doesn’t continue to innovate it will be left behind the rest of the world.

Rita is an experienced, accomplished and highly regarded R&D specialist. She joined William Buck in 2016 after working for 11 years in the R&D team at PwC. Leading the R&D incentives team at William Buck, Rita has assisted STEM companies with every aspect of the R&D incentives claim process, including 100% success with navigating regulator reviews (including software R&D).

A highly accredited scientist, Rita has a Bachelor of Science Degree (Honours) with a double major in chemistry and a Doctorate in chemistry (inorganic) from Monash University, Clayton. She is a Fulbright Scholar and spent one year of her PhD researching rare earth chemistry at the University of California, Irvine (USA).

Rita’s academic achievements are coupled with her hands-on experience as a scientist at BHP-Billiton’s Technology Centre, equipping her with the expertise to apply scientific principles to identify eligible R&D activities and assist companies better articulate their R&D activities in accordance with the R&D law.

Rita’s natural ability to connect and build rapport with technical personnel result in the deep level of technical insight needed for her and her team to deliver successful and low risk R&D claims.

“It comforts me to know that the work we do optimises R&D benefits to provide the company with more money to continue to innovate with minimal risk. We have never had any of our own clients reviewed by AusIndustry.”
