R&D tax relief

The R&D tax relief schemes, administered by HMRC, are designed to boost  innovation by offering businesses tax relief for their R&D activity. Typically SMEs get back up to 33% of the amount they’ve spent on qualifying R&D. Whether your business is big or small, complex or simple, single or multi-site, GovGrant matches you with the technical expert that best suits your business. 

Patent Box

The Patent Box is closely linked with R&D tax relief and a company can often claim tax relief under both schemes. Patent Box allows a reduction of corporation tax down to 10% for profits relating to patented income. GovGrant can offer you advice to maximise your claims across both schemes. Most patented inventions are just small technical improvements on existing products or processes. It may be that the patented element of the product or process is minor. But 100% of a company’s worldwide profits arising from product income should qualify for 10% corporation tax.


IP services

GovGrant’s range of IP services offer solid, direct advice on your Intellectual Property. The best place to start is with IP Harvest – a fixed-fee service that answers the question “Does my business have something worth patenting?” 

GovGrant is changing the conversation around IP so that with IP Harvest the focus is on value creation. Watch our video to find out more.
