Patent box and R&D tax relief can save businesses substantial amounts of money. Their purpose is to incentivise companies to locate their research and development activities in the UK. Often businesses don't realise that they are eligible to apply for these reliefs.
The Patent Box scheme reduces the rate of corporation tax liability to just 10% for companies making profits from goods or services they have patented in the UK, but is often underutilised. With an increase in corporation tax rates now expected, the saving will be even greater as no change has been made to this 10% rate as yet.
Claiming these attractive reliefs can be a complex process, and without a patent in place, which has to be done very early in the life of the product or service, the company cannot claim. It helps to have professional guidance from the start so you don't miss out on these reliefs. Considering how or whether to navigate a patent application comes with lots of questions.
You're invited to a seminar where our panel of experts will explain:
We'll be covering all bases with valuable insights from our accounting expertise for the tax relief available, complemented by the legal IP expertise needed to enable you to take full advantage of these schemes.
Presentations will be followed by an interactive Q&A session with the panel.
