The Patent Box regime is a generous tax incentive introduced in 2013 to encourage innovation in the UK. The regime broadly offers an additional deduction in calculating taxable profits, with the effect that the relevant intellectual property profits are taxed at a reduced corporation tax rate of 10%. The relief was phased in over a period of four years, and so full relief on all Patent Box profits came into force in 2017.
The Patent Box rules are complex and the complexity increased when new Patent Box rules were introduced from 1 July 2016. The old regime will be grandfathered until 2021 for companies that elected into Patent Box before 1 July 2016 and for qualifying intellectual property (IP) that was in existence before 1 July 2016.
The new rules, that altered the development condition and introduced a “modified nexus approach” to ensure that substantive R&D activity is linked with a patent box deduction, is applicable to any company that elects into the regime after 1 July 2016 and for new patent applications after that date.
