Master Class: Innovation and how this can benefit your business

June 5 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Date: Wednesday 5th June 2019 | 9am – 1pm | Venue: Mercury House, Nottingham

This Master Class is ideal for innovative businesses who want to realise the value of their USP and inventions!

This workshop will focus on the following three main areas

  • Protecting innovation and intellectual property
  • Research & Development Tax reliefs
  • Creative tax reliefs
  • Patent box tax relief

This master class will explain how easy it can be to protect your creations and claim Research & Development tax relief. Guest speaker Darryl will explain about the many incentives for the creative industry including Video Games tax relief.
In this Master Class, you will also learn all you need to know about qualifying for a cash payment from HMRC for your R&D projects.

Darryl will look at the tax relief available under the UK Patent Box scheme, which is often overlooked but can realise significant tax savings if you receive income from patented IP.

Sam will talk about the various types of intellectual property, as well as what they protect (e.g. trademarks, designs, copyright and patents) and will set out how to gain protection from each type. This will include a look at software patenting, but mainly focus on the main types of patenting in the UK.

Both Sam and Darryl will be available to answer questions and if there is time are both available for short free one to one consultations.
