Patent box and R&D tax credits workshops

The impending opportunity under the new “patent box” to benefit from a 10% rate of corporation tax from 1 April 2013 has been met with great excitement.  Not only by companies with existing patents, but also those who are developing new technology and may never have considered applying for a patent before.  In addition, the recent improvements to the existing regime for enhanced R&D tax relief of up to 225% will appeal to many of the same companies.

Therefore, to help you understand these important tax reliefs, the Ensors Tax Team are hosting a series of workshops across the region this October.

The workshops are being held in the Ensors’ offices at Bury St Edmunds, Cambridge and Ipswich and have been designed to be small, informal events that will enable your specific issues and concerns to be addressed.

Our two expert speakers, Robert Leggett and Henry Wood, will cover key aspects of both tax relief opportunities, including:

• What tax savings could the patent box bring?
• Essential preparations for the patent box regime
• Finding qualifying R&D expenditure where you might not expect it
• The process of claiming enhanced R&D tax reliefs

We are particularly pleased to welcome specialists from Dummett Copp LLP, Patent and Trade Mark attorneys, who will be able to provide some specific advice on patents – What are they? How do you determine if you are eligible? What is the process to get a granted patent?
