The Greenshoots Podcast by Appleyard Lees, Episode 15: Patent Box – tax relief for patent owners and licensees


Following the release of the 2021/22 UK Budget, corporation tax is set to rise to twenty-five percent in 2023. While this will be unwelcome news for many businesses, tax relief for patent owners and licensees, afforded under the UK Patent Box regime, is now even more valuable.  

In this episode, Appleyard Lees partner, David Walsh, is joined by Tom Dews, a Patent Box specialist and corporate tax partner based in the Leeds office of leading audit, tax and consulting firm, RSM UK.  

Discussion topics include: What is Patent Box? | How does a company qualify for Patent Box? | How is the tax relief accrued? | What types of patents does the tax relief apply to? | Can multinational organisations benefit from the tax relief?
