Corporation Tax Relief

R&D Tax Credits

As the need for more efficient, intelligent and environmentally-friendly products and services increases, the UK is quickly becoming a thriving hub for innovative businesses across a wide range of industries.

In a rapidly evolving market such as this, research and development should play a pivotal part in every business, including their tax strategy, which is why it’s important to seek tax relief or cash back where appropriate.

R&D is a large part of creating wealth within the corporate world, to rebate and re-invest.

TCS’s astute advisors employ their business and financial knowledge to help their clients navigate and stay within the lines of corporation tax relief while utilising it to its full potential.

R&D Tax Relief currently allows businesses to claim up to 24.7% of their expenditure as a tax refund or reduced tax liability for profitable SMEs and up to 33.3% of their expenditure as a cash repayment for loss-making SMEs.

What is R&D Tax Credits?

  • Introduced in 2000 to increase innovation and create wealth in the UK through R&D.

  • Enables companies that incur costs in developing new – or improving existing – products, processes or services to receive a cash payment and/or tax deduction.

  • Works through the Corporation Tax System and has been continually improved since it was introduced.

  • The scope for qualifying activities and costs is enormous, and our team are experts in identifying them to allow our clients to innovate and grow without restriction.

– it is causing, or there is a serious possibility that it could cause, significant pollution in the groundwater, streams, rivers or coastal waters

Patent Box



Corporation Tax to profits earned from its patented inventions. A patent box is a special very low corporate tax regime several countries use to incentivise research and development by taxing patent revenues differently from other commercial payments. It is also known as the intellectual property, innovation, or IP box regime. Companies who take this route could enjoy a 10% deduction on their Corporate Tax bill if it exploits patented inventions and innovations.

When it comes to optimising your tax position and harnessing the benefits of innovation incentives, Tungsten Corporate Solutions (TCS) is your trusted partner. In this blog post, we’ll explore how our team of experts can guide you through the intricacies of the Patent Box regime, ensuring you maximise tax relief while minimising risk. With HMRC-compliant strategies tailored to your unique business needs, we’re here to help you thrive in the ever-evolving intellectual property (IP) taxation landscape.

Step 1: Establishing Eligibility and Substance Requirements

The first crucial step in the Patent Box journey is determining whether your business is eligible for this valuable tax relief scheme. At TCS, our project team conducts an initial assessment to evaluate your patent position and ensure compliance with the operational ownership condition and the development condition. These substance requirements are essential for accessing the benefits of the regime.

Step 2: Assessing Qualifying Expenditure and Profit Mapping

Once eligibility is established, our specialists dive deeper into the complexities of qualifying expenditure. We meticulously review your financial details, examining how income and spending align with relevant product sales, royalties, license fees, patent sales, infringement income, and notional royalties on processes or services. By streamlining your business’s income and expenditure, we comprehensively understand how profits correlate with your IP activities.

Step 3: Maximising Tax Efficiency and Mitigating Risk

At TCS, our team of chartered tax advisers and accountants brings their technical prowess. We assess how much your profits relate to your IP activity, identifying efficiencies and minimising tax risk. Further adjustments are made to trace these profits back to the R&D activities associated with your patents. By doing so, we unlock the potential for an effective 10% tax rate on eligible gains.

Step 4: Industry Expertise and Insight

Our sector specialists possess in-depth industry knowledge and a unique understanding of R&D activities across various sectors. Collaborating closely with our tax team, they help identify relevant IP income concerning the R&D expenditure incurred during the development of your IP. This comprehensive approach ensures that your Patent Box claim or project leverages the full potential of available incentives.

What is an EOT?

  • An EOT is a special form of employee benefit trust introduced by the Government in September 2014 in an attempt to encourage more shareholders to set up a corporate structure similar to the John Lewis model
  • The aim is to facilitate wider employee-ownership, albeit via an indirect holding
  • The incentive for owners is that the Government introduced very generous tax breaks to encourage shareholders to move to an employee-ownership model. However, in order to qualify for the tax incentives, the employee ownership needs to be structured in a particular way

Key tax benefits

If key qualifying conditions are met, the following tax benefits are available:

  • full CGT relief for the shareholders on a disposal of a controlling interest to an employee ownership trust
  • tax-free bonuses of up to £3,600 per year to each employee of the company owned by the employee ownership trust

Tungsten Corporate Service’s top priority is maximising the benefits to our clients through corporation tax relief, utilising our exemplary tax and business knowledge to add value at every opportunity.
