"Portal Medical Ltd has used the Intellectual Property service offering from WJIP for over 9 years. We have found the service given outstanding, with the advice received having been essential in protecting our Intellectual Property position. WJIP guided us effortlessly through the patent application and grant process during both National and International Filing stages. Their advice and strategy for responding to Patent Examiners’ objections was, in our opinion, instrumental in our business being granted and obtaining a patent portfolio. We would thoroughly recommend the services of WJIP, particularly to SME’s when external expertise and advice in this area is essential." - Darren Bromley-Davenport (MBA), Director, Portal Medical Ltd

Patent box – Overview

The UK Government has introduced legislation called the “Patent Box” that reduces the rate of UK Corporation Tax payable on profits made on patents, the sale of patented products and even the sale of products incorporating a patented component, amongst other patent-related profits. The reduced tax rate will eventually be as low as 10%.

The Patent Box complements existing tax incentives for Research and Development, and applies to worldwide patent-related profits earned after 1st April 2013. This is a pretty liberal provision; for instance, even if your product is only covered by a UK or European (EPO) patent then worldwide sales of the product will qualify for the reduced tax rate.

The scheme also applies to certain other types of Intellectual Property, such as rights covering data exclusivity, pharmaceuticals and plant breeds, as well as national patents granted in certain European countries. It should be noted, however, that it does not apply to registered trade marks or designs.
