Discover more about how your company can apply for a 10% corporation tax rate. SMEs involved in R&D projects with fewer than 500 employees and an annual turnover of less than 100m euros or total assets worth less than 86m euros are eligible. However it is a subsidy that many companies have not heard of. On average each company that has applied received £42,000 back in cash payments. Effectively the subsidy is worth 25p for every £1 spent on qualifying R&D expenditure.
“The Patent Box will allow companies to elect to apply a 10% corporation tax rate from 1 April 2013, to all profits attributable to qualifying patents, whether paid separately as royalties or embedded in the sales price of products.” HMRC
