The Patent Box incentive was introduced in phases, over the course of four years, in order to encourage UK businesses to commercialise intellectual property within the UK. The relief allows eligible companies to apply a lower rate of Corporation Tax (10%) to profits generated from its patented inventions.
When handling the Patent Box application alone, it can become quite a complicated process. However, with our Teams complete support, you can simply sit back, avoid the Corporation Tax increase, and reap the benefits your business shall acquire!
Patent Box claims are made by businesses in various different sectors!
In order for your business to benefit from The Patent Box incentive, your company must abide by the following:
In order for a Patent to be deemed eligible for Patent Box your company must own an exclusively licenced patent, granted by the following:
Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, and Sweden.
Following the announcement in the 2021 Spring Budget… From the 1st of April 2023, the CT rate will increase up to 25% for companies with profits over £250,000. Therefore, Patent Box will become more important to UK businesses that are developing and exploiting patented inventions.
The Patent Box incentive can turn your innovative Business, unique thinking, and out of the box ideas into a potential tax saving, helping you to acquire the maximum profit available!
‘Why now?’ you may ask. Well, as of the 1st of April 2023, if your business generates more than £250,000 in profit, you are due to experience a significant change in your corporate tax rates, increasing from just 19% to 25%! However, we have the solution!
If you submit a claim for a Patent Box, you could significantly decrease the detrimental effects of the increase as the relief allows all eligible profits to receive a lower rate of Corporation Tax by an incredible 10%!
