Patent Box Scheme

We identify and maximise patent tax relief opportunities. If you have significantly contributed to the creation or development of an invention claimed in a patent – or a product incorporating this item – Patent Box can reduce your corporation tax rate on qualifying IP income to 10%.

Maximising the value of your patents

The Patent Box regime aims to attract R&D investment, leading to the creation and active management of patentable intellectual property (IP). Leyton provides an end-to-end consultancy service which identifies, maps and analyses patent tax relief opportunities for clients.
