Josh Dearle CA

R&D and Grants Partner

Josh graduated from Curtin University with a Bachelor of Commerce, before gaining his qualification as a Chartered Accountant (CA). He then started his career at EY, before moving into the mid-tier to specialise in R&D tax for small to medium sized businesses. After working on a number of great projects at Grant Thornton and BDO, Josh moved to the R&D tax team at Deloitte where he continued to provide his high-quality service to businesses seeking help and advice with the R&D claim process.

For Josh, working in the field of R&D is a rewarding experience as he believes he can help a business navigate the often confusing claim process. Josh enjoys getting to know a business, its owners, and the complex projects they’re undertaking.  He enjoys forming lasting relationships and has assisted a number of clients from project inception through to commercialisation.

Josh joined Carbon in 2020 as his values align with those of Carbon Group, he is passionate about working with businesses to achieve their potential. Having followed Carbon’s journey for a few years, Josh is excited to now be on board as a partner.

Business tips from Josh

Seek out an advisor who genuinely cares about you and your business and can break things down for you in a simple manner.

From an R&D point of view, ensure you are comfortable that the criteria have been met, and that documentation/evidence can be provided if required.
