Patent Box is a scheme where businesses can elect to pay a lower level of corporation tax on profits that have come from patents and other forms of Intellectual Property.
Have a qualifying IP right
- patents granted by the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) or the EPO
- patents granted by some, but not all, states in the European Economic Area (EEA)
- certain other European IP rights
Actively hold the qualifying IP right as an owner or exclusive licensee.
Have income related to the qualifying IP right
- e.g. sales of patented products or sales of products that use patented technology
The Patent Box allows for a 10% corporate tax rate, rather than 19%, on qualifying profits that come from UK or European patents.
