Research & Development Tax Relief

Companies have for many years been able to derive significant financial benefits from expenditure incurred on qualifying Research & Development (“R&D”) activities.  Following a number of recent changes to the scheme it has now become even more generous.

The seminar will cover:

  • What is R&D for tax purposes?
  • The financial benefits that can be derived
  • The range of costs and activities that can qualify
  • Recent changes to the regime, which now enable all loss making companies to potentially claim tax free cash from HM Revenue & Customs
  • How to maximise claims thereby ensuring companies claim their full entitlement

Patent Box – 10% corporate tax rate since April 2013

New rules on a lower tax rate for profits derived from patents took effect in April 2013.  These new rules, known as the “Patent Box”, are intended to increase the UK’s competitiveness, stimulate innovation and encourage investment in the UK by introducing an effective 10% corporate tax rate for qualifying profits.

The seminar will cover:

  • A summary of what the Patent Box is and how companies may benefit
  • The conditions which companies need to satisfy, and actions that companies may need to take, to ensure they qualify for this regime
  • How you might structure your business, R&D activities, intellectual property and earnings to maximise the benefits of this regime
  • An update of the recent announcements regarding the regime

Paul will be holding this seminar and he is an R&D and Patent Box specialist.  Paul is Head of Tax at Bevan & Buckland, and in addition to advising many owner managed businesses he has also advised some of the largest companies in the UK, including FTSE 100 companies and large multinational groups and is a member of HMRC’s R&D Consultative Committee.
