Patent Box

with No Comments

The Patent Box allows companies to elect to apply a 10 percent rate of corporation tax from 1 April 2013 to all profits attributable to qualifying patents, whether paid separately as royalties or embedded in the sales price of products. The regime will also apply to other qualifying intellectual property rights such as regulatory data protection (also called ‘data exclusivity’), supplementary protection certificates and plant variety rights. Other non-qualifying profits in these companies will continue to be taxed at the main rate.
