Patent boxes: what US companies need to know
A growing number of countries offer "patent box" tax incentives to encourage in-country R&D and intellectual property (IP) development. The UK recently followed other EU member countries in enacting a patent box regime. The UK patent box is specifically aimed at attracting IP-oriented companies and the mechanics of the incentive reflect that intention.
Please join us on Thursday, August 18, at 1:00 p.m. EDT (10:00 a.m. PDT) for a 75-minute webcast during which Ernst & Young tax professionals will discuss the newly adopted UK system, comparisons to other existing systems and key implications for US companies that have income from patents and other IP.
