Recording details

Less well known than Research and Development relief, the Patent Box regime allows companies to apply an effective 10% rate of corporation tax to profits earned from qualifying patented inventions, a significant saving from the main rate of corporation tax at 25%.

With the number of patent applications on the increase the regime is becoming more attractive, particularly as it assists management in balancing the costs of their Intellectual Property (IP) strategy against its benefits; giving them more room to manoeuvre when looking to research and patent going forward.

During the recording we will:

• Cover the key requirements of the regime; including the R&D fraction and effect of recent R&D regime changes
• Provide insights into the workings of the Patent Box regime
• Outline the potential benefits of the regime and how they may help your business
