SRA Competency B


The UK patent box provides some tax relief for companies that have income connected with patents.

This is not just royalties, but also income from sale of products that are protected by patents, or products that include elements protected by patents. It will also apply to income from products and services that involve patented processes.

This course will look at the details of the relief, including the calculation issues that may arise, with a particular focus on planning points and potential traps including the FA 2016 changes to calculation.
